I am having most of my wedding photos taken prior to the start of the ceremony in hopes of being able to enjoy part of the reception and cocktail hour.
I am going back and forth on the following issue: My Fiance and I were planning on going around to the guest tables after the 1st and 2nd courses to thank our guests for coming. My question is should I also take photos with each table or should I have the table shots taken by the photographers without my Fiance and I?
How are you handling guest photos?

Aren’t your photographers going to be wandering and taking photos of guests/you with guests at the reception anyway?

@californiabride2013: my photographers took photos of guests at their tables during dinner ( we had stations so they snapped photos of people were waiting to go up).
Those were nice because then each guest could see a nice pro photo of them!

I wouldnt bother having the photog follow you to do this. Also, we started going around before any food was served, which I do recommend, because it takes awhile to get through, and we wanted to have some time to dance.

@californiabride2013: We are taking photos with our guests in the gap between the ceremony and reception.

I voted for taking photos of guest tables without you. In my experience, it’s much easier for the photographer to coordinate full tables without also having to take your presence into account. We did the casual, candid shots as well, but there is no way I would have skipped having these since it ensures photos of everyone. They are actually the pictures we look at the most and refer to years later.
