We drove in separate cars from the first look to the park where we wanted to take photo’s. The photographers, me and my husband made a few quick stops for photo’s, then met the bridal party at the park. Later in the night we went and took a few more alone after dinner. We were all announced but you can do it either way.

They stayed for about 30 minutes of the hour. Family was done within 10 minutes at the most.

We are doing our first look & the rest of the bride & groom photos before our wedding party arrives. Our photographer said that she thinks you get more romantic photos when you don’t have a whole group of people watching you.

I want to get all the group shots done first so they can go back and enjoy cocktail hour while we do couples pics.

We make a distinction between formal photos and creative portraits.  Bridal parties can be a mixed bag for creative portraits.  We’ve been with some that are really in to the creative photos and love being a part of it.  We’ve been with some bridal parties that think the process is silly, and/or have been drinking too much and are a drag to work with.  It’s important to consider the number of people and the personalities involved. You might want to have them around for 15 minutes or so and then cut them lose.

We did only one hour of posed photos before the wedding, and then after the ceremony got both families and the attendants outside for one large photo of everyone. That was it. It was so easy.
