Wedding Family Formals and Some Observations on Shot Lists

Dun, dun, duuuuun. You’ve probably heard of the ‘shot list’; that magic list that will make all your wedding photography dreams come true. The reality is, they are a bit of a photographer’s nightmare. We know the bride and groom just want to get perfect shots of their wedding day, but as professionals, we don’t need a list of obvious requests like ‘get the kiss’ or ‘capture the bride coming down the aisle’ – we’d be pretty rubbish wedding photographers if we needed to be reminded about these iconic shots!

What is really great to have on the other hand, is a list of family formals that you’d like taken on the day. The wedding day can be hectic and there’s a lot to remember and do, so we want to help you make family photos as quick and painless as possible; that’s why we slot them in immediately after the ceremony, at your wedding venue or at a picturesque spot nearby. Family formals are simple, posed images of the newly wedded couple with key family members. We understand that these shots become an important piece of family history, so we will handle them with the utmost care and attention to ensure everybody looks their best.
