In my career, I've photographed everything from newborns to a past United States President, but my passion and focus has been for the wedding industry for over the past 5 years. I truly love this calling and feel blessed each day!

How Many Hours Do You Need to Book a Wedding Photographer | Biloxi Wedding Photographer

Education

July 14, 2022

When you start planning your wedding, so many questions start coming up. How many hours you will need a photographer for is one of them! I’ve been a Wedding Photographer serving the Biloxi area for over 10 years so I can definitely recommend a thing or ten.


The number of wedding photography hours you book mostly depends on how big your wedding is and how much of the day you want to capture. The below guidelines will be a help for you!

Biloxi Wedding Photographers


2-4 Hours
If you are one of the many couples who will be eloping or planning a micro wedding this year, you won’t need to book a photographer for longer than 2-4 hours. With this being said, if you would prefer to capture more than just the ceremony and a few portraits, you will want to opt for more hours.


6 Hours
This is the ideal number of hours for intimate weddings with less than 50 guests. These 6 hours will give you enough time to capture important moments such as getting ready, the ceremony, family photos, the first dance, and cutting the cake. There likely won’t be enough time for a lot of detail and décor shots or many photos of the end of the night though.


8 Hours
This is generally the average number of hours that couples book with their wedding photographer. It provides enough time for all the moments mentioned above. But there is also additional time available for bridal party photos and photos of your guests at the reception. You will also need at least 8 hours if your ceremony and reception will be held at different venues.


10 Hours
If you hate being rushed and want as much time as possible for all the shots you have in mind, book at least 10 hours with your wedding photographer. This also leaves more than enough time for detail and prep shots, a first look, a photo booth, and a grand reception exit.
It’s very rare for couples to need more than 10 hours of photography time on their wedding day. However, don’t forget to ask your photographer whether their travel time is included in those hours should you be planning a destination wedding.
