How many hours of coverage do I need?

If everything is in one place you may need as little as 5 hours to cover your wedding day:

  • Preparation photos – 1 hour before the wedding
    •   Ceremony photos – 1 hour or less
    •   Cocktail hour photos 1 hour– this is when we take all the formal portraits.
    •   Reception – 2-3 hours into the reception should get you past the cake cutting. After the cake cutting the opportunity for professional photos decreases and the food is getting cleared from the tables etc.  
  • You can add hours on to your package at any time up to and even on the day of the wedding! The photographer is not allowed to leave if the bride asks them to stay. Additional hours are billed at $199 per hour and must be paid before the wedding images are released to the bride.
  • If your wedding timeline ends at a half of an hour mark and you need this covered. Extra 30 minutes is considered an hour. 30 minute coverage is not offered for all services Classic Photographers offers. (Ex: Start time 12:00 PM - 5:30 PM you will need 6 hours of coverage)
