Hi all! We are currently in the process of choosing our photography package and I need some feedback on what is necessary.
One package has two photographers for the entire day from each of us getting ready up until the sweets table comes out (basically all night).
The other package has two photographers from the time we each get ready until right after the cocktail hour but will also take photos of the first dance, cake cutting.
What is the general consensus on how long the photographer should stay? Are pictures of the dancing portion of the reception keepers (i.e. will they be included in your photo album, are you happy that you have these shots). Or did you find you didn't really miss having these photos?
We are also getting cinematography done for the day which may make up for the lack of reception pictures.
I would love everyone's thoughts on this. Thanks!!
