Example Formal Groups

Here’s a list of the typical formal groups which I often shoot. Whilst I’m sure they are important to you, please remember that too many groups can easily occupy your day. It’s good to have a balance of time for the formals, your shots and the candid shots! Obviously, if you’re having all-day coverage, there are more opportunities for photos throughout your day.
