Hello Bees 🙂
So the time has come to send my photographer a list of the shots I want him to get, and I have no freaking clue!!! I have two photographers, so I have one who will be getting all the candid shots (the ones I’m most looking forward to, actually 🙂 ) and our photographer is very good at just flying by the seat of his pants and getting shots on his own, but I would love to be able to give him something to work with.
So, what kind of photos should I make sure he gets? Some with FI and I and my family, then his family. Some with FI’s grandparents (mine have sadly passed). I also really wanna get some with friends who come to the creremony since I’m having a two-tiered reception so they won’t be at the reception on the day.
Any ideas for any others? Bridal party location shots in particular? One of the locations is a beach, and we’re trying to decide on the other two (I know, cutting it close!!!).
Thank you in advance for your help!! 🙂

Googling “wedding poses” or “wedding family photo list”…things like that may give you ideas…and like the above poster said, Pinterest helps!

Some photographers are not happy when you present photos from Pinterest even though I found tons that I love on there. When they ask for a list they want to know what are your must have shots like some of the ones that maybe I wasn’t clear when I asked for getting ready shots
Here are some examples the “grooms” father putting on his boutinierre or helping him put his jacket or vest on, straightening his tie
or entire bridal party is standard, but we didn’t get one posed
bridal portraits your entire dress front, n back, hanging
or specific photos with special people

An experienced photographer just needs a list of family formals to make that part go faster.
