The other type of list is the shot by shot list of everything to cover. A good photog is going to know what elements are important to tell the story of your day.
Did you see Ocean's Thirteen? There's a scene where the card-shuffler hacker briefly explains to the experienced hustlers how to play blackjack. It's kinda like that.
|and i like the idea of letting your photog know where pictures can be skimped (i.e. getting ready) and where you want a fuller shoot (i.e. the reception).|
I actually recommend the opposite. I usually find more moments between the bride and her friends/family during before the wedding that make great images than in the last hour or so of the reception. Assuming you've covered any major reception events (cake,garter,dances,toast,whatever) the rest of the party is the same at the beginning as it is at the end. Usually the only difference is the level of consumed-alcohol amongst the dancers. There's usually more going on - and changing quickly - during the beginning of the day.
