Take some pictures with him and take some without.

You, hubby, mom; you, hubby, mom, and him.

You and mom; you and him; you and mom and him

You get the idea. As for the group picture, you may just have to include him and if it doesn’t last, oh well. There are a lot of brides who had group shots with people in them who sadly, arent’ in their lives anymore.

I agree with JennyW1– also, make sure your photographer knows about the situation and that what pictures you’re expecting, so that he or she can make sure to pull out the bf in certain pics.

I agree with the other posters to take some with and some without. Also, have him on the end so you can easily have him cropped out of pics if you need to.

I agree with the other posters. Just take a couple with him in them, and some without him. That way you don’t offend anyone, but he doesn’t have to be in every one of your family pics!

I agree – some with and some without. 

we had a girlfriend of a cousin get in our family photos and I was kind of upset afterwards!  Everyone knows that when you have group photos significant others aren’t invited!  It’s an unspoken rule!  If you’re not engaged or married, you’re not family!  It’s polite to step aside!  Since he’s engaged I think it’d be rude to not include him.

take both pics with and without but have a personal word to the photographer beforehand about the situation.  good luck hun 🙂
