Anyone NOT having family/group pictures taken?

Is there anyone not having family/group pictures taken? I HATE those pictures where everyone is standing shoulder to shoulder like a line up at a police station. Think I will regret not having these pictures taken? Thanks

You are not alone in not enjoying the police line-up photos though! We are going to bring a photographer with us who is a friend of a friend and we have been at weddings he has shot. He takes all candid photos and they are amazing!

You can get creative with those pics so they aren't just "standard" though. (see the bridal party pic in my siggy, or look at my teaser pics). There are plenty of ways to not have them be so "typical".
But I would never have NOT gotten family and group shots done. I want to be able to look back at those pics in years to come .. and hopefully my children adn their children, etc will too...

but, after the wedding mike's mom asked if we were doing a family picture. we had talked about not doing one and she didn't seam to care if we skipped that. so then we made plans to do them after dinner. it was just a quick thing.
the way i wanted to get family pictures was while we were toasting after the wedding. i really prefer those. they are more natural.
we did do a big group pic with everyone. i really like that picture.

Everyone can stand in a more natural pose (mom/dad holding hands, bff and her bf w/ arms around each other, leaning on a rock, a sassy hand-on-hip, etc) and smile!
Elizabeth has a beautiful photo of the wedding party standing/sitting by large rocks in the middle of this slideshow that I absolutely LOVE and had to bookmark. Be sure to hit pause before it moves on to the next pic!
