Oh man! Me too! I feel like there’s going to be sooo many to remember!

I’m definitly making sure to ask for detail shots like the meals, decorations, rings, invites, and gift table.

I also want shots of my family and his family together.

I used to be a wedding videographer, so I know it’s different from photography, but these are shots that we usually tried to get. Maybe it’ll help. These won’t include the obvious ceremony and reception shots.

Bride: zipping up the back of the dress, getting jewelry on, putting on the shoes

Shots of the dress by itself

Family pictures (bride and groom): with just your mother or father, parents, siblings, grandparents, both families together…it really depends on how much you want to expand it. Also, it was important to my mom to have a generational shot (myself, mother, and grandmother). It could be a consideration for your groom as well.

Bridesmaids and Groomsmen: Individual shots with each and group pictures 

Groom: Having his boutonniere put on (should he have one), getting his tie on

Random: the tables set up before guests arrive, the cake, the centerpieces, signing the wedding license, the rings (should you want this), ceremony site (this includes if you have candles set up, decorations on the stage area, etc.)

You might want to consider, depending on whether you have one or two photographers, if you want pictures of your groom’s face when he sees you come in the room.
