WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDE
As you've probably noticed, I don't take too many overly posed photos on the wedding day. However, I do feel that it is essential to capture casually posed groups of the family or close friends. These photographs usually take place immediately following the ceremony or right before the ceremony (details to be confirmed by you). In order to make this process less confusing for all parties, I would appreciate your help in organizing formal groups; below are the standard groupings (taking 20-25 minutes).
bride + groom with bride's parents
bride with siblings
bride + groom with bride's parents, siblings, and grandparents
bride + groom with groom's parents
groom with siblings
bride + groom with groom's parents, siblings, and grandparents
You can estimate an average of 3-4 minutes per grouping; when everyone is present and ready to smile! Please consider this when adding groups to the list. Please communicate to everyone participating in the formal photographs prior, so that time is not wasted searching for missing individuals. If you wish to add extended family into formal photographs, I recommend taking one large bride/groom side photograph as opposed to multiple smaller groupings. If there are other groupings you wish to have taken, please communicate to photographer.
