It’s completely up to you! You can have whoever you want in the family pictures! Besides, everyone’s family has diffferent family dynamics so it really depends on your own preference.  Here is a general guideline if you need:

  1. bride and groom
  2. with bride’s parents
  3. with bride’s intermediate family (parents and siblings)
  4. with bride’s siblings only?
  5. with bride’s grandparents
  6. with groom’s parents
  7. with groom’s intermediate family
  8. with groom’s siblings only?
  9. with groom’s grandparents
  10. with both bride’s and groom’s parents
  11. with both intermediate families

Additional if you desire:

  1. with bride’s extended family (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.)
  2. with groom’s extended family

It really depends on what you want.  You can have anyone you want in the pictures, even friends.

Were asking everyone (aunts/uncles/cousins and their kids) to come an hour before the ceremony for pictures. We won’t need a whole hour but I don’t want guests seeing us take pics

Generally I try to tell my couples to limit family photos to immediate family (grandparents, parents, siblings…as well as the spouses/kids of their siblings). If they want a picutre with Aunt Sally, we can get it at the reception. It becomes WAY too much to go into various groupings. I just shot a 300 person wedding tonight, which huge families. They did bring in extended family for large group shots and while it went okay tonight, normally it’s a mess.
