    For family portraits, we only did parents, siblings, and grandparent (only one attended).  We did have a group shot done with everyone though (we only had about 30 people at the wedding).

    my family is very small, so we are including my immediate family (mom / dad / sister / brother-in-law ) and my uncle. (i have no living grandparents) FI fam is HUGE but we will include his immediate family (mom / dad / sister / brother), and both sets of his grandparents. we will take pics all together right after the ceremony, and probably a few before too. (if we decide to do a first look we may do ALOT of pics before)

    i think it depends on who you want and your personal family situation 🙂

    After my mum died, (3 yrs ago) I dug out their wedding album. It was obv a fairly traditional set up, but I have to say I really enjoyed looking at all the pics, with the whole run of extended family. I’d say talk to your photog about how to fit in the photos you want without diverting your whole day to suit. There will always be photos you’ll be sorry you didn’t get, otherwise.

    We did extensive portraits with us individually with our families, (siblings, parents, aunts, grandparents, cousins, etc) and then us together with each. But, his family is small and most of mine couldn’t make it. If it were bigger I’d probably have just done immediate fam (with just one and with the couple) and then whole fam.
