When it comes to preparing your photo wish list there are a few things you need to consider.
FIRSTLY this wedding will only happen ONCE - So make sure you prioritise who appears in your photos. You don't want to have regrets after your wedding if you missed out the all important uncle bob and his 3 children!
What you need to do is make a list of who you want formal photographs taken of starting with the Bride & Groom and working down each of their family and extended families etc.
All of your guests are important of course and all of them can be photographed throughout your wedding day. But we mustn't forget Great Grandpa Joe and if he wasn't included in the formal photograph segment of the day and he's been asleep since the speeches...well you may not end up with a beautiful portrait of you both. Boo...
OH NO! The bride was late, ceremony over ran and its getting close to the sit down meal and the chef is flapping because the food is almost ready... etc If for any reason things have over run and time is cut short in the schedule - I have a back up go to list. This is a priority list that assures the immediate family get photographed. The photo wish list can be picked up again later in the day to cover everyone else. Easy.
I guide all my brides and grooms through this process and assure them that everyone in their photo wish list WILL be photographed.
