Wedding Formal Portrait List

Going into your wedding day can be a little hectic. One of the most chaotic parts of the day is family portraits. Photographers are often trying to get all these family photos in about 10 minutes. A great way to prep your family for this whirlwind is to let them know where they need to be and when. Here is my wedding formal portrait list to help understand how the photos will flow!
