Some of these are from the girls on here and I don't know exactly who they belong to so sorry I can't give you all the credit you deserve, but here you go:

Hey -

 

FWIW, I shoot about 40 weddings a year and won't accept a shot list. Instead, I show my clients 10 or so complete weddings - 500+ pics each, before they book me.

 

I demonstrate consistency, and lots of great candid shots.

 

As soon as people start wanting shot lists, and acting, the photos aren't as real, and they look fake.

 

I much prefer to put couples into situations where they can create their own moments.

 

As for formals, I will take a short list, but realize that I do this every weekend, and I know to get the wedding party combos, family combos, and all the regular stuff. The list is only so a particular family member won't get left out.

 

I know a ton of planning goes into making your day perfect, and if you just let your pro photographer know what is important to you, they will most likely get great pics of you!

Here's a list of pics to make sure you get. I know my photographer asked me if there were any pictures that I wanted to let her know. I have made up a list of formals and then I've been saving ttd pictures to give her an idea of what I'm looking for out of ttd shoot.

 

So I suppose you should check w/ your photographer. Like ehegwer he will put you in a situation to make a great moment.... or you may have a photog like mine who wants to know what you're looking for. I don't want these exact photos, but these are the type of pictures I'm really looking for.
