 NOTE: shot will be varies depending on couple’s schedule and planning and personal agenda.  The list doesn't have to be in order. San Francisco Photographer should be creative and spontaneous so he or she doesn't have to follow the list. The list is there so you can have a visualization of the wedding event.  Most brides and grooms will tell the wedding photorapher who they want photos of or what photo are important and the rest of the shots you take should be up to the photographer.
