    We did all our intimate couple photos before and our first look. We tried to get our bridal party photos done before as well but ran out of time however our ceremony was at 130 pm. The family photos were some after the ceremony

    We’re planning on doing bride and groom portraits as well as the wedding party before. Then we’re going to do a few family photos after the ceremony. I’ve budgeted 20 minutes for those.

    Yes groomettes people and the bridesmaids as we had females in tuxes too plus us the couple and we included my wife’s parents from England as my parents have passed so i wanted as many pics of them as possible. The attendants too, all the special people in tuxes and dresses standing up with us and helpers. Honestly a bit of a mess and not one with everyone in it so ??? You decide who you consider your bridal party

    We just did bride and groom pictures before the ceremony and did all wedding party and family ones after the ceremony. Ours wasn’t done to cut down on photo time , it was done to allow some private time with my husband and it helped us both to relax.

    That is actually exactly what I did. Our first look, then bridal party, then my family, then ceremony then photos with his family and just a few more with bridal party, then reception. 😀 Worked out great.

    We had  6pm wedding. We did a first look, bridal party pictures (together, and also me with the bridesmaids and him with the groomsmen) Then we did family pictures. Then ceremony. We got a few shots of us (after we were married at sunset.) I wasnt sure how it would go but it was nice to get the formal pics completely finished and not having to worry about them later.

    We did our first look and couple photos, then bridal party (bridesmaids, groomsmen, junior bridesmaid and ring-bearer) photos before the ceremony. Formal family photos were directly after the ceremony (along with some more couple shots).
