I never want a client to feel like they are going to miss out on a picture just because they book fewer hours. For example, at a five hour wedding you'll still get pictures of the flowers and getting ready, but it will be a handful or small sampling of images. With a seven hour event, there is more time to get a variety of shots. I can take the items away from the room and get creative. Or, there is more time to get the wedding party hanging out; laughing and chatting as they prepare for the day. With a five hour wedding, I still get some of those hanging out pictures, but just a few. In the end, it will come down to your budget and what you have envisioned for your big day.
