Flower girl, ring bearer, etc. Please specify. If any attendants are under 12 years old, please specify age.
Our goal is to take family formals in 20 minutes. However, this is only possible if we are organized beforehand! If you have a very large family and more than 10 group photos, I suggest saving some of the extended family shots until the reception (see group pictures below) so that family portrait time will not run behind and keep guests waiting.
Please make sure that family members know where and when to meet for pictures.
Please list up to 10 family grouping for family portraits.
Please include names so we can call family members by their first name as we organize portraits. Example: B&G with Bride's Parents (Don & Maria) and Siblings (Alex, Sophia). Also, please specify if there are step-parents and step-siblings involved in portraits.
Are there any special circumstances I should be aware of?
For example, divorces, deaths, or separations. We want family formals to be a pleasant experience, so we want to avoid awkward situations if certain family members don't get along or don't want to be grouped with other family members. Thank you!
Are you willing to have family pictures taken outside, if your ceremony is indoors?
No, I'd prefer the inside ceremony site.
Does not apply. My ceremony is outdoors.
Are there any groups of extended family or friends you would like photographed during the reception? If so, please make sure the DJ or MC is aware of this so we can coordinate the best time for these shots.
