HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE DO I NEED FOR MY WEDDING?

HOW MUCH TIME WOULD YOU NEED?

This is one of the main questions I usually have from my couples? Would 5 hours be enough? maybe 8? I'm gonna try to shed some light to try to help you decide which coverage option will be perfect to tell your LOVE story. Bear in mind that I'm only talking about the coverage on your wedding day, nothing to do with the engagement session. As you may know, an engagement session is included with all my packages. So, for example, if you decide to go for Barcelona Experience you will have a 1-2 hours engagement session plus an 11 hour of coverage on your wedding day.

The options which would work best for your wedding will depend on the type of wedding you've got in mind, the location and also if your ceremony and your reception take place at different places. But first, let me explain why I offer 6h, 8h, 10h or 11 hours of coverage on my wedding packages, or as I call them: experiences.

 Wedding Photography Pricing

As my goal is to create something different, unique and special for you I need to have enough time to tell the LOVE story shared by each of my couples. On a typical wedding day, I usually start 45 minutes before the bride's make-up and hair is done or half an hour before a same-sex couple starts getting ready. Actually, I have to admit that the 'getting ready' is my favourite part of a wedding day. The emotion and nerves minutes before the ceremony, the family, the laughs, the tears... I simply love it. So, you need to keep in mind that the coverage will start a little bit before the 'getting ready' stage of the wedding. Why? Well, because I love to photograph those little details which means the world to you. For example the rings, shoes, bouquet, jewellery, gifts etc. Then comes the ceremony, the cocktail, the reception, cut the cake, the first dance and the evening party. You can see and learn more about how and what I photograph during a wedding day on the wedding packages page.

But don't worry because if you book your consultation to talk further about all your wedding details I will walk you through all your options and I will honestly tell you which package would be the perfect one for your wedding.

Anyway, let's break down the different coverages to help you think about which one you should go for:

6/8 HOURS COVERAGE

ALMOST FULL DAY COVERAGE IN A BUDGET

 Seville Experience Wedding Photography Packages

Seville Experience is the package which includes 6 or 8 hours of coverage. This package is perfect for a short wedding. So, if you're planning a full day wedding this package wouldn't be for you because as you may already know, my goal is to tell your LOVE story. So if you book this particular package and you start getting ready for your wedding day at for example 11 am, I would have to leave at roughly 5 pm - 7 pm and might leave part of the story behind. And to be honest, I wouldn't like to do that. And so wouldn't you, because you'll probably regret when you see your images for the first time and you notice there's something missing.

Also, this wedding photography package doesn't include a Queensberry Album. You will get of course an online gallery (one for the engagement and one for the wedding day) which you can share with family and friends and also you'll be able to download your wedding photos directly from the gallery.

One of the things that I'm most proud of my business is my customer service and the close relationship that I keep with my couples. I need them to feel at ease but also I want them to receive something extraordinary, something that they don't even expect. Therefore, this is the main reason why I don't give my couples the choice of booking this package when they're planning an all-day wedding which they usually are in the 10h range.

 

10 HOURS COVERAGE

FULL DAY WEDDING WITH A STUNNING QUEENSBERRY ALBUM

 Madrid Experience Wedding Photography Packages

Madrid Experience includes 10 hours coverage and it's the best option if you're planning an all-day wedding but you're already streaching your wedding budget. Typically, from the getting ready to the first dance depending on your wedding's timeline.

So, with this package, I would be able to document from the 'getting ready' to the first dance and all in between. This is my favourite package for couples who wants their LOVE story fully documented on a budget. Additionally, the 14x10 Queensberry Wedding Album is truly beautiful and I'm sure you'll fall in love with it!

11 HOURS COVERAGE

DEFINETLY, ALL INCLUDED!

 Barcelona Experience Wedding Photography Packages, the most popular.

Barcelona Experience is without a shadow of a doubt the most popular package among my couples. If you want to have your wedding day completely documented from start to finish this is the way to go. Barcelona experience includes everything you need. I think for most all-day weddings this coverage is the sweet spot. Even the 14x10 DUO Queensberry Wedding Album included is huge and stunning! And to be honest, there's nothing that can beat a contemporary matted wedding album like this (yes, it's my very very favourite. Obvious, isn't it?). Also included, 2 beautiful parent albums, mini copies of your own wedding album which will make the perfect gift for your parents. 

 Stunning Queensberry Wedding Albums included in all my packages

Bear in mind that these are the packages that I put together for the majority of my couples, but if your wedding is special and different I can tailor one only for you. For example, if your wedding is gonna take place in a beautiful location abroad or just if you're planning a 2 or 3 days event.  So don't hesitate to drop me a line or two!
