beyond that some of my favorite shots have been the first look of course (thats a private moment between the two of you where he sees you for the first time before the ceremony and its a much better way to capture it then when you walk down the isle)
the pictures of you getting ready with hair and make up are my faves always and the photos of teh groomsmen pallin around. dont forget to get lots of detail shots of your tables and flowers and rings and dress. you know what .. just tell him to start taking pictuers and never stop hahaha

If you are doing a list, I'd keep it to the posed photos only.
Of course, my standpoint on shooting a wedding is capturing the day as it unfolds in front of me - the shots that result are a factor of the day...... not the other way around.
If you give a list, to any photog - novice or pro - then the concern is not about capturing the day -- but fulfilling a list of requirements.
In my approach, I shoot every wedding with the same approach -- of course the details shots are grabbed during the slow times..... and of course we run thru the formal shots.... but every other shot is a direct result of what is going on in front of me. -- Your photographer should really act as your shadow.... and your fiance's, and your parents, and his parents... etc.. -- your photographer should be everywhere at every moment -- looking for moments as they happen. --
not trying to setup the next shot on the list.
When you give this list to a novice, it is adding extra- not-needed pressure on a photographer that might not feel 100% comfortable doing a wedding in the first place.
Of course -- this is coming from a photojournalist - and not a traditional wedding photog.... so you can take my advice with a grain of salt. - but overall I think lists are a horrible, horrible thing.
As a photojournalist - you can not assume anything - Lists assume quite a bit.... but in real life, things dont always go as planned. A photojournalist needs to be constantly on the look for everything.
sorry to go on and on -- but this gets into my approach to photography, so I obviously feel very strong about it!
-- just a thought for you though...... I thought you should hear the other side before you confront a volunteer - or "out of a favor" photographer with a shot list. If they are an experienced photojournalist the list idea will probably be rejected - or if they are a novice, it could just make them much more nervous about shooting your wedding!
not to mention the fact that 90% of the shots on all lists should ALWAYS be shot at every wedding.... so there is no reason to add it to a list!
