Wedding Family Portrait Checklist To Give Your Photographer

Planning a wedding can be difficult and stressful. Between flowers, DJs, who to invite, and more - things can be overwhelming!

When day finally comes and it's time to get photos with your family after the ceremony, we don't want you to get so caught up in the moment that you forget to take a photo with Nana and regret it later down the road!

To help with this, we've made a basic family checklist for you to use so that the wedding day will be smooth and organized.



Bride + Groom + Bride's Parents

Bride + Bride's Parents

Bride + Groom + Groom's Parents


Bride + Groom + Bride's Siblings

Bride + Bride's Sister(s) -- Usually in the bridal party

Bride + Groom + Groom's Siblings

Groom + Groom's Brother(s) -- Usually in Bridal Party


Bride + Groom + Bride's Grandparents

Bride + Bride's Grandma(s)

Groom + Groom's Grandpa(s)

Full Family

Bride + Groom + All of Bride's Immediate Family

Bride + Groom + All of Groom's Immediate Family


Now you may obviously put your Aunts/Uncles/Cousins in the mix if you feel like you would really like a photo with them!

This is just a basic list for you to work off of when deciding who to take photos with!


  • Remember to keep time in mind when planning your wedding family portrait checklist. You don't want to take time away from your bridal party/newly wed couple photos just because you might want your 3rd cousin, twice removed, in with your family photos!

  • If your siblings/other family members have significant others attending, but you're not comfortable putting them in your photos, don't worry about it! Their relationship may only last a few months, but your photos will last the rest of your life!

  • Make sure to share your finalized list with the family members you'll need so everyone stays close after the ceremony. This will help keep things organized and on time knowing where everyone is!
