I absolutely love meeting our couple’s families on the wedding day! Family formals are normally my first interaction with them and so I love to have a game plan for this part of the day!
Creating a family shot list is one of the more difficult things to make for your wedding day. I wanted to show you what a sample family formal list looks like to help you prepare. This is just a guide to get the juices flowing in regards to making your family shot list. It also helps you not forget any immediate family members 🙂
I do have to limit the family formal time in order to ensure that we have plenty of daylight for your romantic portraits. However, any large family group shots that we don’t accomplish during family formals, we can be sure to capture at the reception!
Here is a sample of a family shot list:
B&G with Bride’s Immediate Family (Parents, Siblings, Grandparents, Nieces, Nephews)
B&G with Bride’s Parents
B&G with Bride’s Siblings
Bride with her Parents
Bride with Mom, Bride with Dad
B&G with Bride’s Grandparents
B&G with both sets of Parents
B&G with Groom’s Immediate Family (Parents, Siblings, Grandparents, Nieces, Nephews) B&G with Groom’s Parents
B&G with Groom’s Siblings
Groom with his Parents
Groom with Mom, Groom with Dad
B&G with Groom’s Grandparents
B&G with all family members if time allows
