    We have 8 hours booked, but can always ask her to stay longer if needed.

    I think we only selected 7 or 8 originally, but she knows its a full day, so we'll add hours if necessary (probably will be)... she's not coming to me (getting ready photos) til about noon-ish, and our dances/speeches/dinner/cake cutting will all be done by about 8.30... So it may end up being maybe 9 or 10 hours, but no longer.

    Our photographer will do full day coverage. I originally was only looking for 6-8 hours but our photographer only does full day packages.

    We booked a full day of coverage with 2 photographers. Definitely worth it, we got over 1,000 photos back! They arrived at about 12 and stayed with us till about 10 pm. They did a great job, although I wish they had arrived a little earlier, as we have no "getting ready" photos with the bridesmaids as a group.

    I am fortunate that there is no time limit with my photographer. She is a good friend of mine (if she didn't do the photos, she would still be at my wedding). but even the other photographer I was looking didn't limit the time.

    her 2nd shooter will go to the guys place as they are getting ready, and she comes to us ladies. so sometimes around noon-1pm (we haven't figured this part out). she doesn't charge extra to go to other locations. and she said she will not have any drinks until after speeches/important reception stuff is done. but she said after that she is having drinks and will still keep shooting photos. I expect some fun ones from that!

    We will be having around 8 hours! Though our photographer is friends with my mom and knows some of my family, so she said she may stay later to visit! And take more photos.

    We have booked 8 hours. They will come at the end of our getting ready, and then stay through until the party starts.

    My photographer is a friend that I made at work over 2 years ago so she is willing to take pictures as long as I need! How we pay is up to us as she keeps insisting that she doesn't need to get paid ("it's only her second wedding she's photographed" is her excuse). So really the plan is to have her from when we start getting ready at 10ish till after the speeches at 6:30/7 but she will have her camera's on her in case she see's something worth capturing. All in all there will be at least 9 hours worth of pictures.

    All day. It鈥檚 a destination wedding, so the photographer has to travel to do our wedding. Because it鈥檚 expensive, she gives you a full day

    We have 8 hours so far, but may pay for an additional hour or 2 as we want sunset photos, but are getting married on the longest weekend of the year! Our photographer is great too and is willing to work around the schedule however!

    10 hours - she'll arrive around 10:45 am to get our getting ready pictures, and be done around 8:45 pm, about 30 minutes after the party starts.

    She's also become a friend, and will be staying for the party and will likely get a few extra pictures as well.
