I am finding many photographers charge based on the number of hours you want them to shoot. We are debating how long we should book one for. Our ceremony starts at 6pm, should last about 30 minutes or so, and then we have a cocktail hour before the reception. The reception ends at midnight, but I do not think it is necessary for the photographer to stay that late. We are going to do a “first look” before the ceremony as well, and I want to try and take some photos with the wedding party before the ceremony. Any recommendations on how long we should book a photographer for? Also, how late into the reception do you think the photographer to stay? I am not sure if I care to have a ton of pictures of people dancing or not. Thanks!
