While most of your wedding day is about documenting those unplanned moments or those ‘just married’ mushy bits, we realize that family photos are just as important. Having a planned family shot list on your wedding day is important for a few reasons. But mostly, it’s much easier to make thoughtful decisions about which photos you’d like when you aren’t in the middle wedding day chaos. You’ll go into the day knowing that the important shots are on the list.
Secondly, because this list exists you are giving your photographer what they need to take charge of this part of the day. We’ve found that as photographers when we can take charge of the family photo time we can get this portion of your day done so much more quickly. If we have the list and can direct people for each grouping then we can ensure that your family photo moments are quick and stress free for you.
A family photo shot list makes sure that you don’t have as many family members waiting around wanting additional photos—if they know that we have a list and we have got it under control then they aren’t worried you’re missing out on something important. And lastly, having a family photo shot list will ensure that you and your photographer are on the same page about which groupings are important to you so you can plan your timeline accordingly.
