Rehearsal Dinner Coverage – Do you need it?
Hiring your photographer for rehearsal dinner coverage is something that is often overlooked. Do you need it though? That really depends on the two of you. The rehearsal dinner is full of the same emotions and moments associated with the wedding day. Just without the wedding dress and tuxedos.
From a photographer standpoint, it can be nice to spend time with you two, the wedding party, and the family before the actual wedding. Not only does it allow me to observe who the teary members of your family will be. But it allows them to get used to me being present and silently documenting moments. Hopefully, that will make them forget that I’m around a little bit quicker on the wedding day.
Rehearsal dinner coverage will vary by photographer. Salt & Sonder coverage is $1800 and includes up to 3 hours of coverage. Coverage is only available on weekdays as Saturdays are reserved for weddings. So if you have a Sunday wedding and want to have photos from your rehearsal dinner, you’ll want to schedule it for Thursday or Friday.
