The wedding day family pictures (also known as the formals or family groups) are a necessary part of your wedding day, you do not want the day to pass without those pictures of two families coming together and pictures of family and grandparents, mementos that you will treasure forever.
I will be blunt many couples do not want ‘formal’ photographs and look for ‘reportage’ type wedding photography but who does not want pictures of their families and grandparents. OK some think it’s tedious and boring! They’re also the one part of the day that can tend to drag on for newly weds and can (in some) cases cause some angst and stress.
That’s why we should try and get the family group pictures done as quick and painless as possible, to get those mementos for you and your families.
