I started to give one to my photographer but they had the majority of them already as standard pictures.  I would write down the obvious ones such as

you and Darling Husband, the two of you with each respective family, all families combined, you with each Bridesmaid or Best Man, him with each Groomsmen, cake cutting, etc

If there are specific people you want pictures with, make sure to give names – you and grandma, you and Aunt so and so, etc.

Other ones would be if you want certain pictures of non-people.  I wanted to make sure I had a picture of the whole room set up, table set ups, my place card table since I made all the placecards, our rings on a starfish, etc.

I’m probably mainly going to give her a detail list–like a picture of my dress hanging, pictures of my shoes, my jewelry, etc. But based on previous weddings she’s done, it seems like she typically always gets those shots. Did your photographer say that he/she needs a list? Sometimes they don’t like it/don’t feel like they need it/don’t want to be held to a list of like 60 photos.

We gave a list and I know he didn’t get several of the ones I requested. People kept disappearing and I guess it was easier to grab them randomly rather than waste time posing. I hope he got some good ones,but haven’t seen any yet.

He said he always takes the ‘standard’ shots but to tell him about specific requests. What good does it do if he doesn’t follow them?

You give to your photographer a list of what to shoot? Surprised

I’m a little bit surpised! No couple has ever given me a list I’m suposed to know what I have to do. Of course sometimes there are things not obvious so people tell me…

But a must have list never! It’s funny!
