This information is important in the event of an emergency on the wedding day. Please complete whatever information applies to your wedding! Little details are the best, ex: your necklace was your great grandmother's that she wore on her wedding day! When I know these details I can make sure that I capture everything that has sentimental value to you!

How many guests are you planning on having at your wedding?
Family formals can take about 30 minutes if we are organized beforehand! Please list 10 different groupings for family photos. For example: 1. Bride + Groom with parents 2. Bride + Groom with grandparents 3. Bride + Groom with siblings.
Within these groupings you can have more than one shot (ex. B+G with groom's parents, B+G with bride's parents, etc). If you have a very large family and more than 10 group photos, I suggest saving some of the extended family shots until the reception so that family portrait time will not interfere with your romantic portraits and you will not keep your guests waiting at the reception. Please inform me of any family members that may not get along and/or may not want to be grouped with certain other family members so that we can avoid any awkward interactions during family formals. Thank you!
Please list family groupings for family portraits (please include names so that I can call family members by their first names as we organize the portraits). Ex. B+G with bride's parents (Kevin + Brenda). Also please specify if there are step parents and step siblings involved in portraits.
Are there any divorces or separations that I should be aware of during family formals? Any family situations I should be aware of? (optional)
Are there any RULES or REGULATIONS for photographers at your ceremony/reception venue?
Is there anything I should be aware of on the wedding day? Surprises? Gifts? Etc.?
What address should I use to send your package after the wedding? And can I use this address before the wedding?
Any other details you would like to share with me?
