Ten-Hour Wedding Timeline Sample Ideas For A 10-Hour Wedding

How Do I Plan My 10-Hour Wedding Day?

A ten-hour wedding timeline is perfect for couples who want their wedding day documented by their photographer but don’t need the full day. Having multiple locations on your day works well with a 10-hour package too. Couples that choose to have a 10-hour wedding photographer often have better photos because they have enough time built into the day for all the required and candid photos.

I am a wedding photographer whose packages satisfy the needs of almost every wedding couple.  My Dayton wedding photography packages meet the needs of wedding couples while allowing me enough time to capture your wedding day. I also offer a 6-hour package and an 8-hour package, but they may not be enough to capture everything you need.

The 10-hour timeline is for a wedding day where the couple has a special first look and a ceremony start time of 5 pm.  This is a guide and can be customized to fit your day.  Please note the more time you give me, the photographer, the better, more artistic images you will receive. I hope this ten-hour wedding photography timeline sample can help you plan your day regardless of who your photographer is.
