The short answer is…probably more than you think! It’s so easy to underestimate time for things like traveling from here to there, corralling family members for group photos, etc.
The last thing you want for your special day is to feel rushed or stressed out about the time.
I offer Colorado elopement packages ranging from 4 to 12 hours (or more!) because I understand every couple is unique and has a different budget and needs for their day.
But regardless of which package you choose, the bottom line to me is that your elopement is NO. LESS. SPECIAL. than a large, traditional wedding.
Elopements and microweddings are NOT for people who “don’t care” about their wedding day.
They are NOT last minute affairs with no thought or care put into them. Some people spend years planning their elopement day.
That’s why more and more couples are choosing full day coverage just like those traditional weddings.
Your photo coverage needs will greatly depend on what you want to do for your day. And on what parts of your day you feel will hold those special moments you want to remember. It’s not about an all day photo shoot.
It’s about being able to look back on your day and FEEL like you are there again.
