A Stress-Free Wedding Family Photo Game Plan

Your family photos are one of the special moments during your big day! They usually happen at the same spot as your ceremony, capturing candid moments. These can often be the only ‘formal’ photos you’ll have.

Now, let’s talk logistics. Depending on the size of your families, this should breeze by in around 30 minutes – no stress! But hey, to make sure everything goes smoothly, why not make a list of the family shots you’d like in advance? It’s a game-changer in keeping things efficient and letting you enjoy your time with loved ones.

Here’s a pro tip: Get a family member or a friend who knows both sides of the family to help organize everyone. Having someone in the know can make sure everyone’s ready and waiting, so we don’t play hide-and-seek with your relatives. And don’t forget to give your family photo stars a heads-up before the big day.

Now, about that “Big-Group-Photo-of-Everybody” idea… 😬 I’ll be straight with you – it’s not our top pick. When there are too many people, faces can get hidden and tiny, and a lot of folks end up playing peekaboo behind others. Plus, it can kinda put a damper on the mood and gobble up precious time. Instead, we’d rather capture the magic of mingling, hugs, congrats, and as many guests as possible in smaller groups. 🥳

Here’s a basic example list to get you started:

1st side:

  • Newlyweds + parents
  • Newlyweds + parents + siblings
  • Newlyweds + parents + siblings + grandparents

Both sides:

  • Newlyweds + both sets of parents

2nd side:

  • Newlyweds + parents
  • Newlyweds + parents + siblings
  • Newlyweds + parents + siblings + grandparents

Keep it simple, and remember, it’s your day to shine! ✨Enjoy every moment, and let us handle the rest.
