I think you'd be surprised if you knew how many people come to my office and tell me, "I don't want group shot. My mom wants group shots but, it's not important to me." For that reason I don't show them a lot, when I make a sample book I often leave them out because there are more desirable shots. When I was married I handed our photographer a list of a million shots and he had to gently inform me that there would not be enough time to accomplish all of that. While these are not necessarily the shots we hang on our walls, they are images we cherish just like the rest of our collection. My husbands grandmother is no longer with us, but she was in those group shots. My mom doesn't dance or do any socializing so the only shots of her from our wedding were in the group shots. I know they take some time to do, and it's always the most tedious part of your wedding, but you'll be happy you did. Because we don't post them and show them off that much I thought I would put together a blog post with group shots so you can see our approach to wedding group shots and see that these aren't your momma's group shots, they're all your own.
Thanks for looking.
