want everything captured: getting ready all the way through a sparkler exit/end of the reception.
only care about the ceremony, major reception events, and photos of me and my boo.
Typically, best for a wedding day with 1 venue, no first look, and no reception send-off coverage. To have getting ready photos, a second photographer is almost always necessary but that won't always guarantee enough time.
This is the sweet spot for most weddings and what we have found works really well for one venue, or two venues, and variations of first look/no first look etc.
This is best if you are having a longer ceremony, traveling between multiple venues or photo spots, want getting ready & reception send-off coverage, or are having an early ceremony, such as a Catholic Mass, but reception at a traditional time.
