In order to make this process less time consuming and confusing for all parties involved I would appreciate your help in the selection of your formal groupings. Our standard formal groupings are listed below. The following list will generally take 15 minutes.
1. Bride and groom with bride’s parents
2. Bride and groom with bride’s parents and siblings
3. Bride and groom with groom’s parents
4. Bride and groom with groom’s parents and siblings
5. Bride and groom with grandparents
Please note, it is very important that you consider time restraints when adding to the list of formal photographs. You can estimate an average of 5-10 minutes per grouping. It is absolutely vital that everyone who is in the formal groupings be ready to begin the session at the stated time. In order to not waste time searching for missing individuals, please be sure to communicate this to all those you would like to participate. If you wish to add extended family into the formals, we recommend taking one large bride side / groom side shot as opposed to large numbers of smaller groupings.
*Please note, I need to eat on your wedding day.*
I would prefer to be served as close as possible (time wise) to your meals, that way I am eating when you are eating and I’ll be able to take photographs when you’re back up to mingle and dance.
Phew! You did it!
Thanks so much for taking the time to give me this information! It helps A LOT!
I will schedule a meeting with you about a month prior to you wedding to go over all the information and make sure a plan is properly in place and formed just for your wedding day!
Also please email me any schedules provided by your coordinator or venue, as the additional information will be very helpful to me
Thank you! I can't wait to celebrate with you!
