Tips to make family photos fast and easy for everyone at your wedding

When it comes to wedding photography, family portraits can be one of the most challenging parts of the day. But with a little bit of planning and some tips and tricks, you can make the process fast and easy. Here are some things to keep in mind:

Create a Short List: Before the wedding day, work with the couple to create a short list for family portraits. This will help ensure that we capture all the important groupings and avoid any confusion or missed shots.

Gather the Family: Before we start taking photos, we'll make sure we have someone (such as the best man or family member) to help us gather the family members we need for each photo. This will save time and avoid confusion, we can find our spot and get them done in a jiffy.

Be Efficient: Once we have everyone in place, we'll work quickly to capture the photo. I'll give clear and concise directions to ensure that everyone is looking at the camera and in the right position. Then I'll take a few photographs in rapid succession to increase my chances of getting "the" one.

Keep it Simple: Stick to the basic groupings mums, dads, bridesmaids, groomsmen are a good start. We won't try to get too creative or complicated with the poses, as this can slow down the process. The last thing I want at your wedding is for your guests to go away tired, hot, cold and frustrated, it's not great business!

By following these tips, you can make family portraits a quick and painless part of the wedding photography process, allowing us to get back to what we're there for, getting the candids!
