Western Weddings by Vivid Dreams Photography

Weddings are unique and the photography + cinematography coverage you will want should reflect that. As wedding photographers and videographers we love the opportunity to be a part of your big day. It is one of the most rewarding part of our job as wedding professionals, and creating a lasting relationship with our couples is always our goal!

We are not the most expensive option you will find out there but we certainly won’t be the cheapest either. We’re the meaty in between offering what the most expensive studios do. We give a great deal attention to creating a truly unique and add a personal touch to representation of your wedding day.

We are happy to provide free no questions asked and no obligation to book us consultations. This is to ensure we are the right fit for you and provide you with the coverage that leaves you comfortable knowing that your day and events are fully covered. We want you to have an amazing time on your big day! We are not the yelling and screaming types of photographers forcing you to pose in awkward positions. We want you to be the real authentic yourself and comfortable in front of the camera. Our focus is on realism, authentic, telling it like it is approche.


6 Hours of Wedding Day Coverage | Digital Package | 2 Photographers | 2 Videographers

Just because this is usually the least expensive package we offer, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is only for couples with tight budgets! Six hours of coverage is plenty for small weddings and elopements. When weddings are intimate, there aren’t very many people to manage and photograph or film, so things tend to move quickly. That being said, 6 hours of coverage only works logistically if the ceremony and reception are in the same location. (this last point is very crucial when picking this package)

Following are some things to consider:

  • 6 hours of coverage most likely means that there will not be much (or any) time for detail decor/design shots or photos of you getting ready
  • But, there will be coverage of all of the important moments (portraits, ceremony, family photos, first dance, cake cutting, etc.)
  • The end of the night comes early with just 6 hours of coverage so, most likely there will not be many photos of the reception once dancing starts

8 Hours of Wedding Day Coverage | Digital Package | 2 Photographers | 2 Videographers

An 8-hour package is usually enough time for an average-size wedding (about 100-150 people), and the extra 2 hours of coverage will usually allow the photographer to capture the tail end of you getting ready, some detail shots of the reception space, and the start of the dance party.

Following are some things to consider:

  • If you have your heart set on doing a first look, then we recommend at least 8 hours of coverage
  • Even though 8 hours seems like a lot of time, this works best for weddings where the ceremony and reception are at the same location. Since the additional 2 hours gives the photographer just enough time to take a few getting ready, detail, and dancing shots, you don’t want to waste 30 or 40 minutes on your photographer needing to pack up her/his gear and drive to (and set back up at) a second location

10 Hours of Wedding Day Coverage | Full Package with Canvas & Albums | 2 Photographers | 3 Videographers

Don’t want to feel rushed to get all of the Pinterest-worthy shots everyone wants on their wedding day? Then at least 10 hours of coverage is the right way to go. Since the photographers are on site for most of the day, there is enough time to get all of the detail and prep shots, plus plenty of extra time for a first look (if you want to do one). On top of that, nobody will have to rush through any of the wedding party and family portraits before getting to dinner and dancing.

Following are some things to consider:

  • If the wedding ceremony and reception are taking place in different locations, we recommend at least 10 hours of coverage. This gives the photographer enough time to travel to the second location and still get all of the shots
  • Planning a grand exit? Unless you’re willing to give up coverage in the earlier hours, 10 hours is usually not enough to have a photographer there until the very end of the reception

12 Hours of Full Wedding Day and Full Reception Coverage | Full Package with Canvas & Albums | 2 Photographers | 3 Videographers

There are a few reasons why 12 hours of coverage would be right for you as a couple. Aside from it being more than enough time to capture all of the details of the day, this amount of coverage is almost necessary if there is a very large wedding party (bridal parties of 12 or more).

Following are some things to consider:

  • If you have a huge wedding party and family, we usually recommend 12 hours of coverage. Why? With everyone in “party mode” it means that it can be hard to get and keep people’s attention (not to mention the fact that it can be difficult to find and get the right people in the right place all at the right time!)
  • If you’re super into design and/or have the budget to make all of those Pinterest inspiration ideas come to life, it would be a bummer if all of those design details didn’t get photographed. So, if you have the wedding signs, custom cocktails, and lounges that everybody dreams of, we definitely recommend 12 hours of coverage to make sure every design detail gets the attention it deserves!
