Family formals – how to manage

Family formal pictures are usually taken right after the ceremony. However, occasionally it may happen before the ceremony, if logistics require. Often it happens close to the place of the ceremony, next to the church, or at the park nearby. Sometimes it may happen next to the reception location.
Depending on the size of the party, it may be helpful to create a list of formal pictures that you want to be captured in. It will be a different combination of people from close and extended family for both bride and groom, mixed together and separate. For example, you may want a picture of bride and groom with groom`s all family, then just close family, then just the siblings, etc.
Even though I will do my best to remember most of your families, it is always a good idea to have someone from your side of the family who knows well both families and/or is known to them. She or he will have the list that bride and groom will create, and will coordinate with the guests, directing them to the location of the photo shoot.
