As to how much photography coverage is needed, all depends on what parts of the day are important to you. Most couples choose around 9 hours of coverage because that includes all the important parts – starting with getting ready, the ceremony and portraits, plus the formalities at the reception and some dance floor action.

Below is a general guide for how much time to allow for each part of the day :

GROOM PREP // 1 HOUR

This allows time for getting photos of the grooms details, the groom and his groomsmen to get ready in their suits as well as a few relaxed portraits. There is also time for the groom to open a gift from his bride, and a great opportunity for natural photos of the groom as he reads his bride's love letter.

BRIDE PREP // 1.5-2 HOURS

This allows time for candids of the bride and her bridesmaids as they have hair & makeup, as well as the brides details, the bride getting ready as well as a few relaxed portraits. There is also time for opening gifts and the bride to read the love letter from her groom.

PRE CEREMONY // 15-30 MINUTES

This time allows me to capture photos of the ceremony location and details as well as candids as guests are arriving and the groom waiting for his bride to arrive.

CEREMONY // 1 HOUR

Most ceremonies last around 30 minutes. I will capture a variety of angles of the bride and groom, the bridal party as well as guest reactions along with the key moments of the service. If you are having a traditional church wedding, your ceremony might go for longer, anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour so please allow 1.5 hours.

Following the ceremony, allow around 15-30 minutes for your guests to congratulate you both. You truly get some great candids amongst all the hugging and kissing.

FAMILY PHOTOS // 30 MINUTES

Depending on whether you are having family photos with just your immediate family members or the extended family, and possibly even friend groups, will determine how long to allow for family photos, generally 30 minutes should cover the important people. I recommend working from a list which we will discuss prior to the wedding day and having a family member from each side available to assist with finding people to make the family photos run efficiently and quickly.

PORTRAITS // 1.5 HOURS

For the wedding party and couples portrait session, I recommend allowing at least 1 hour but 1.5 hours is preferred. I like to start with the wedding party photos capturing a variety of fun and beautiful portraits before moving onto the couples portraits. I generally send the bridal party away so the couple can have time alone together as these photos are more intimate. The best time for your bridal portraits is 45 minutes before sunset and finishing 15 minutes after sunset, what's called 'golden hour'.

RECEPTION DETAILS // 15 MINUTES

Ive included this section because its often forgotten about when planning. The best time to capture all the lovely reception room details, from table settings to floral arrangements, is before the guests enter the main reception room. Usually this is during sunset and the prime time for the couples portraits. Here you will have to decide what is most important, details or your photos! There are a few solutions, you can add a second photographer to your package (and there are other benefits to having a second photographer - read our article on the Planning Tips page), we can head back to the reception before the guests enter or if your ceremony is at the same venue as your reception, I can duck in either before the ceremony starts or after the family photos.

RECEPTION // 1+ HOURS

Depending on what parts of the reception are important will determine how much of the reception you want covered. With 9 hours of coverage that generally allows 3 hours of reception coverage to include all the formalities; speeches, cutting the cake and the first dance as well as some candid dance floor action.

WEDDING COVERAGE + ALBUM COLLECTION

This photography package has been created with an album included. The album starts with 25 spreads (50 pages) as I believe this is a more realistic starting point, unlike other photographers that start with less, usually only 10 or 15 spreads (20 or 30 pages). 25 spreads is adequate to tell a good part of your wedding day story without having to spend more on extra pages, as you would most likely have to when starting with as few as a 10/15 spreads.

Most weddings with day & night day coverage usually require between 20-40 spreads (50-80 pages). You can always add extra pages to the album, up to 45 spreads (90 pages) should you wish to add more photos to your album.

Photographs were meant to be printed. There’s something to be said about a tangible, printed photo that you can hold in your hand, that you just don’t get from looking at a screen.

I imagine my couples curled up together with their favourite bottle of wine, music playing in the background and their wedding album laid out in front of them, browsing the pages full of memories from one of their most treasured days – a lasting keepsake.

With this vision in mind, the Fine Art wedding album is a beautiful way to tell the story of your wedding day with a collection of your favourite memories from start to finish, beautifully printed.

Working with the best album supplier in Australia to offer my lovely couples these beautiful fine art albums. All images are printed on the finest archival matte-finish paper. Each album is handcrafted with love.

For the album cover, choose from genuine or eco-friendly leathers, linens & fabrics, or a photo-wrap cover. There is a huge range of colours to choose from and the leather and fabric covers are custom embossed with your names.

HOW TO GET YOUR ALBUM FOR FREE - ALBUM REGISTRY

For those of you wanting an album but not sure you have room in the wedding budget, listen to this … I have partnered up with Album Registry, a wedding gift registry service whereby your family and friends can contribute to the purchase of your album. That means the cost of the album doesn’t come out of your pockets. Your family and friends already want to gift you something to celebrate your wedding, so rather than them wasting money on something you don’t need or want (ie. a shit gift), you are actually helping your family and friends contribute to a gift you will value for many years. Win Win right!
