What Photography Level should we book? 1, 2 or 3?

01 / 18

Obviously we are not to know a couple’s budget, so we can’t advise you in that area! But in terms of the offerings, the Levels are largely determined by the coverage. So, if you’re not interested in having any of the reception covered, then Level 1 would be fine. But if you want your bridal dance and speeches covered, or all the crazy dance floor action and final farewells captured, then you should go for level 2 or 3.

Here is a rough example of how the coverage of the 3 Levels work…

Level 1 (4 hrs coverage – e.g. 2pm – 6pm)

2pm – 2:20pm: Groom Preparations
2:30pm – 3:10pm: Bride Preps
3:30pm – 4:15pm: Ceremony
4:30pm – 5:30pm: Location Shoot
5:45pm – 6pm: Canapes and Reception Arrival

Level 2 (7 hrs coverage – e.g. 2pm – 9pm)

2pm – 2:20pm: Groom Preparations
2:30pm – 3:10pm: Bride Preps
3:30pm – 4:15pm: Ceremony
4:30pm – 5:30pm: Location Shoot
5:45pm – 6pm: Canapes and Reception Arrival
7pm: Speeches
8pm: Cake Cutting & Bridal Dance
8:15pm – 9pm: Dance Floor Action

Level 3 (10 hrs coverage – e.g. 2pm – 12am)

2pm – 2:30pm: Groom Preparations
2:40pm – 3:30pm: Bride Preps
4pm – 5:00pm: Ceremony
5:15pm – 6:30pm: Location Shoot
6:45pm – 7pm: Canapes and Reception Arrival
8pm: Speeches
9pm: Meals
9:20pm: More Speeches
9:45pm: Bridal Dance
10pm – 11:30pm: Dance Floor Action
11:45pm: Bouquet/Garter
11:50pm – 12am: Final Farewells

* As it gets closer to the wedding, if you feel you need some extra time up your sleeve, you can easily add 1 x additional hour to any level.
