Fiance and I are planning on having a first look, and getting some photography out of the way before the ceremony. I’d love to get some family portraits done, too… but FI’s immediate family involves a BUNCH of neices and nephews, and I’m a bit concerned that so many people would be hanging around before teh ceremony.
So… I’m curious. How did you split up your photos before and after the ceremony? And, even better… share your photo timeline!
For curious folks, we’re planning to have very few (if any) attendants, so there won’t be a ton of bridesmaid/groomsmen shots…

We definitely got the pictures with the children done before the ceremony. They basically went from the car to the photos. I wanted them to be able to run around and play after the ceremony, so made sure to get those photos taken first. 🙂

@mink: ::waves back:: Thanks! That sounds like a good idea. I imagine these were after your first look (Which, by the way, was AMAZING). Most (or all) of the kids will eventually be fitted with some sort of tutu-like-garb for the actual ceremony… but I suppose they can remove it for a bit if there’s in-between time before the ceremony.

We didn’t have first look photos, but I did get pictures with my bridesmaids and immediate family out of the way before the ceremony. The day-of coordinator tucked me away when my husband was on the premises and he took pictures with his groomsmen and immediate family. After the ceremony we took photos with families (including extended families) as a couple. It didn’t really take very long… maybe 20-30 minutes. But we had a small-ish wedding (70 guests) and maybe 5 kids total who were ages 8-11.
