CREATING A FAMILY PHOTO LIST



A family Photo list is super helpful to making the process go smoothly and efficiently. As the photographer I do not know the names of your family or really even who your family is so first names need to be on the list instead of (Mom & Dad) etc. Please keep your family photo list to IMMEDIATE FAMILY ONLY. (Mom, Dad, Siblings, grandparents) Avoid Aunts, uncles cousins & friends, we can do photos with them at your reception! With trying to keep your family photos no more than 30 minutes long please try to keep your list down to 15 groupings (2 minutes per grouping)
