Very standard. We have a list of 40 shots and with adding and pulling people my photog has asked for 30 mins

The more detailed the better to make sure you have everything you need – I left out one or two combinations and we didn’t have them! I didn’t get one of my DH’s siblings with mine, and I didn’t get my sister/flowergirl with my BMs and my brother/ringbearer with the groomsmen. I did forget to have some aunt/uncle family shots (i.e Mother-In-Law with her two brothers and all their kids) but Mother-In-Law remembered and we had them. Do NOT expect your photographer to just KNOW, they have enough on their plate and need that direction from you.

@RobinBananas:  At least 15 during the main portrait time, excluding any shots beforehand which would add like 10.

My advice is to keep it as brief as possible.  If (and that’s a big IF) your families are organized and exactly where they need to be, each combination takes a couple of minutes.  If you add it all up you might be standing there taking photos for a long time if your list is long or a family member goes missing.  Stick to the list, and if you have more time after then allow combinations on the fly.
