We’re keeping formal shots to a minimum, but will likely do:

groom + best man

bride + maid of honor

full party (including ushers + officiant, who is a dear friend)

groom + bride + officiant

We’re not doing lots of photos either — just full party, guys by themselves, gals by themselves. And probably me with the guys.

  We’re definitely on the same page.  If we have time we may do some silly/fun shots in addition to the more formal ones, but are primarily interested in candids over formals.  Basic wedding party shots + minimum family shots.  Instead of doing all the combos, we’re going to ask our photographer to try and get some shots during the reception of key people, like FI’s grandmother (90 this summer) or of Fiance and his brother in a more casual setting.  To us, those shots will be more fun/meaningful than the lineup of family.  That said, we’re also having a small wedding, so it’s easier to catch certain combos of people.

To play devil’s advocate, I wonder if you are asking because you will feel like you have "missed out" years from now? I am hoping to take the following formal shots:

Me+Groom (duh)

Full party

Me+MOH (my little sister)

Me+BMs

Me with each Bridesmaid or Best Man

Me+GM

Groom+BM

Groom+GMs

Groom with each Groomsmen

Groom+BMs

Some mixed goofy shots

Also Me+Groom+Officiant

We are going to take all of the pics that don’t involve the groom and I being together before the ceremony(We will arrive at 5 with only our dresses to put on and the ceremony is not until 7 ).

It will take a little longer, but it is my only day to get those shots! That being said, I love the idea of candid photos; there is something to be said for more time for those!!

Wow, Erin, that’s a LOT of pictures! Good point though, if you feel like you’ll be missing out on pictures, definitely take them.

For me though, I have enough posed pictures of me with my bridal party on Facebook that I don’t need to waste everyone’s time with another set just because we’re dressed up.
