Shot lists are NOT required, but highly recommended if you want those traditional style family portraits on your wedding day.
 

 

Having a shot list makes it easier to round up family and friends and allows us to be as efficient as possible on the wedding day.  If you're opting for traditional family portraits, I would kindly ask to see your "shot list" as soon as possible so we can ensure we have enough time in your schedule.

I always recommend delegating the round-up task to someone in the bridal party and providing a copy of your shot list to your best man or maid/man of honor (or bridal party member who knows most of the people on the list) so they can round up your family in advance.  Also, it's important to ensure your bridal party knows where and when to gather at least 10-15 minutes before we are ready to shoot your portraits so we don't waste any time waiting for people to arrive.
