Family photos are some of the most important from the day. They are the images your parents and grandparents will likely hang on the walls, so its important that we have enough time to fit in all of the main combinations.
It helps if you designate one person at your wedding that knows all of the immediate family on both sides. Make sure they have a printed copy of the family photo list so they can gather everyone. Please send us the list ahead of time via email.
Usually these photos take place immediately following the ceremony, and usually near by the ceremony site so we don’t lose any family members.
When making your list, keep in mind that each combination takes 3 to 5 minutes.
Typically family photos include parents, grandparents, siblings and their families. If you have other close relatives you would like in family photos you can include them in your list, but make sure we have enough time to run through all of the combinations.
Alternatively, you can grab us at any point throughout the reception to do photos with any group of people you would like! If we have lots of available time we can do as many or as large of combinations that you might like.
When you make your list please use everybody’s name rather than relationship to you. For example: Nicole, Kevin, Bob & Susan, etc.
Here is a sample list.
Bride + mom
Bride + dad
Bride + mom + dad
Bride + groom + mom + dad
Bride + groom + mom + dad + siblings
Bride + groom + mom + dad + siblings + spouses/families
Bride + groom + siblings
Bride + groom + mom + dad + grandparents
Bride + groom + grandparents
Bride + groom + brides parents + grooms parents
Then the same thing for the grooms side of the family
