Sample Shot List

Generally, we start with large groups and release people until we're down to the bride and groom.  The groupings are totally up to you.  If you want to have your full extended family, that's fine.  If you'd rather keep it small, that's fine too!  

Just let us know names and relationships to you so we can make sure to include everyone.


Have specific ideas for shots?  Let us know!  We'll add it to our Shot List.  There are shots we get every wedding such as the bride walking down the aisle, first kiss, ring exchange, etc, but if there is a moment you want to make sure we take note of, include that too.
