There are several types of photographs, which will be taken at your wedding. a: The traditional groups, close-ups, long shots, etc. from which you chose the minimum number for which you have contracted and b: the specially requested photographs which you have asked to be taken c: photojournalistic images which are at the discretion of the photographer.
The photojournalistic images are very individual and it is best to look closely at what the photographer has done in the past to see if the style is in keeping with what you have in mind. Do remember though that exact replicas of images that you have seen may not be possible as each and every occasion is very different.
So now we come to the photographs, which 'may' be taken. We must though draw your attention to that word 'may'? It is impossible to say definitely that a picture will be taken as weddings are so un predictable - guests not being present or 'disappearing' when they are needed or vicars being uncooperative, etc. However, your photographer will be doing his best to take everything that is expected of him or her.
Generally the story begins at the Brides home, so it is best to decide what photographs you want well in advance. Remember that delays can be caused by hair stylists or florists who arrive late, not to mention the bridesmaids and matron of honor! Then, on the morning of your wedding day before your photographer arrives you should look around the room and remove anything, which you would not want to appear in the photographs?
The next opportunity for photographs is at the church, your photographer will want to capture images of the Groom and Bestman along with the Ushers and other principle guests, such as the Brides Parents, The Grooms Parents and perhaps even the Grandparents
etiquette does allow estranged partners not to stand next to each other or
even be photographed together.

Wedding Trivia:WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
