Putting together a wedding photo list is tough for couples. In fact I don’t think you should have to! I totally think this is the job of your professional photographer. As someone who’s been working weddings for 20 years I have created my own comprehensive photo list. I have never shared this until now.

Along with the list, I’ve added some photos from other couples so you can see how to add your own creativity. I do think you should tell your photographer about the must-have shots that are unique to you. Make sure your wedding photo list is also personal.
