Time is limited. Especially on a wedding day. Couples often ask me how much I need for their couple photos. And the truth is, how much I need is depends heavily on the two of you.
The more time we spend with just the three of us, the more couple photos you'll get. But if you spent that time hungry or wishing to be celebrating with your friends, it will show. Which is why I'll never push for more time, possibly even cut it short.
What I do like to do, is find little pockets of time here and there to pull you out of your group for just a minute or two. Especially at sunset, or right before I leave your party. But even then you are always free to tell me 'no'.
If you love early mornings and you're happy to wake up before sunrise for something special - awesome! Let's do it! If that's just not you, I won't even try to persuade you.
It's as simple as that: your day, your photos, your time.
