Family photos do not have to take over 30 minutes of cocktail hour. However, this is only possible if we are organized beforehand! Please list ten different groupings for family photos.
1. Bride and groom with parents.
2. Bride and Groom with grandparents.
3. Bride and Groom with siblings.
Within these groupings, I will do my best to get small pairings (ex. B&G with Groom's parents, B&G with Bride's
Parents, etc.) If you have a very large family and more than 10 group photos, I suggest saving some of the
extended family shots until the reception so that family portrait time will not interfere with your bride + groom
portraits and wedding timeline and you will not keep your guests waiting at the reception.
(Please include names so that I can call family members by their first name as we organize the portraits)
EX: B&G with Bride’s Parents (Kevin & Brenda)
Please make sure to tell ALL of these people ahead of time that they are expected to stick around for photos immediately following the ceremony.
IF YOU ARE HIRING A VIDEOGRAPHER:
Videographers are a wonderful addition to your wedding day, and we will work as a team to get the shots we both need. However, because I am the one setting up the poses, it's very important that the videographer allow me the space to get the shots I need, and then I will turn the shot over to them. Often, videographers are up too close and end up in important shots, like during the ceremony. By clicking the box below, you are agreeing that I am not held liable for any images obstructed by the videographer.
Example: mom buttoning up my dress, laughing photo with maid of honor
Here are some items I would love you to have ready for me to shoot as soon as I arrive. Including (but not limited to) dress, shoes, garter, invitation, BOTH rings, veil, flowers, jewelry, shoes, tie, and any family heirlooms that they would like photographed.
