Family photos do not have to take over 20 minutes. 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, you can have more than one shot (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)
Also, please specify if there are any step-parents and
step-siblings involved in portraits.
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.
