Shot list

I only need a list to cover the formal shots, the group ones with family and friends in. My advise would be to keep this as small as possible and keep in mind that each formal group shot takes about 3-5 minutes per photo. This is from experience of rounding people up, you often find that somebody is missing somewhere.

My tip is to do the elderly and friends (not immediate family) first so that they can retire to the bar and relax. It is important to remember people who have travelled a distance for you and also your special friends who aren’t part of the Bridal party.

Here is an example:

Bride with Mother
Bride with Father
Bride with Mother & Father
Bride with Siblings
Bride with Mother, Father and Siblings
Bride with Grandparents
Family generation photo including all above (you may want to wait and do this with the groom)
