Creating a list of desired pictures helps your photographer get the formal portraits you want without holding up the day-of timeline. But Jenna Brisson of Jenna Brisson Photography encourages couples “to make the family photo list as concise as possible.”“The longer your family list, the more time you’ll need to block off to take photos,” she notes. “A concise list is key if you hope to be present on your wedding day and enjoy as many moments as possible.” Another great way to save time is to keep your family members in the loop. Oftentimes, time is lost trying to find people because “couples forget to tell the extended family that they want photos taken with or of them,” explains Jeri Solomon of Jeri Solomon Floral Design. “They will communicate with the photographer but not the family.” So be sure grandma knows to stay back for photos instead of hustling off to cocktail hour after the ceremony wraps up!
