Wedding Photography: Do I Need to Include My Siblings’ Significant Others in My Wedding Photos?

Boyfriends and girlfriends come and go. When snapping wedding photos, do you memorialize your siblings’ dates forever, or opt for pictures without them?

There is no doubt about the importance of photography and videography at your wedding. Besides your love and your memories, your photos and video will be all that remain after your special day is over, so you’re correct in thinking about the details in advance!

My problem is not with them, but with their significant others: my brother is engaged and my sister has a boyfriend. I’m worried about including them in our family photos in case the couples break up. I wouldn’t want to have to look at them in my album forever after. I don’t want to offend anyone, but I just don’t know what to do.”
