So I was planning on asking my photographer to come at 10:30am at my hotel to take some getting ready photos for my first look that begins at 12 at a different place. I need him till about 11 pm. I don't know if I can justify paying all this extra money for extra hours. I'm guaranteed 9 hours as part of my contract and anything else I pay extra for. My reception ends at midnight so I've been told 11 is a good time to let the photographers go home. Meaning they would begin at 12 for my first look. My first look time cannot change due to others using the site after me. Should I suck it up and pay for the extra hours or just use a camera that I have and ask my bridesmaids to take some photos for me? I just don't want to regret anything so your advice is truly appreciated!
