Trouble With Photography And Brunch Wedding?

Our wedding is 2 years away and we wanted to start thinking about photography now due to the pandemic going on and because October weddings book really quickly with any vendor, even this far out. We're planning to have a brunch wedding and we don't have an exact timeline yet since we still have time to plan that part, however, we were thinking about having the ceremony start between 10:00-11:00 AM, again, we are not sure yet, but we think that's a reasonable time.

My question is, because of everyone having to wake up earlier to get ready and to take getting ready photos, will I have any trouble finding a good photographer that will want to come and take photos that early? I'm currently not looking for a photographer at the moment just yet, I just want to know if a brunch wedding will cause a photographer to not want to take our getting ready photos, ceremony photos, reception photos, etc. We still want a brunch wedding no matter what because that's just what we personally want, we just thought we would ask this on here early before getting quotes from local photographers. Thank you in advance!

    I don't think you'll have trouble! Usually for getting ready photos, the photographer shows up at the very end. When my photographer arrived, our hair and makeup was complete, and all that was left to do was get into out outfits. The getting ready photos were of me and my bridesmaids on the bed in our outfits and my mom helping me into my dress. The getting ready photos took a total of 15 minutes. I would potentially anticipate some added early morning fees for your hair and makeup person, but I don't see that happening with a photographer since they wouldn't be there for all of getting ready and usually show up near the end

    I don't think this will be an issue at all. Some photographers may even be excited about it because they could also fit an evening wedding in the same day if they wanted.

    No, it shouldn't be an issue. I would be surprised if you had a hard time.

    It shouldn’t be an issue at all. Our ceremony is at 10am and the photographers we talked to weren’t phased. They don’t usually show up until later in the getting ready process for staged photos.

    I don't think you'll have any problems! Before we postponed to 2021, our wedding was going to be early, ceremony at 11:00am and reception at 12:00pm. We would have gotten up at 4:30am and the photographers would have arrived at 9:00am with our standard package and could have added more time if we wanted.

    I don't think you will have trouble. I am doing a brunch wedding (10am ceremony) and the photographers I reached out to didn't have an issue with the early start time. It actually worked out well for us because we reached out to a highly sought out photographer and he already had a wedding booked, but since ours was earlier in the day, he was able to accommodate and fit us in as well!
