This is a question I see asked a lot online and on social media groups and forums. What group photos should I ask my photographer for? Some people suggest (sensibly) to ask the photographer for suggestions, as they should know the best ones. Other people put forward their own ideas but sometimes these can be a bit obscure or based on their own circumstances. So I've put together a definitive list of the best group photos. These cover all the major bases, keep both families happy and incorporate the entire wedding party too.
It's worth noting that there may be some that are not relevant to your own wedding or situations (eg you may not have children!), and you may find that your photographer has suggested a limit on how many photos to request (mainly as this all takes time, and there may not be much in which to do all of these!) so be sensible with your choices and numbers and be prepared to compromise a little if needs be...
I always love to get both serious and silly variations of some of these, particularly the ones involving the wedding party who are almost always up for a giggle at a wedding! You can also throw in a confetti toss (either has a tunnel or gathered around the couple) for some extra colour and fun for all the guests to be part of!
