As for Recession… #1, stop giving photography businesses stupidly horrible names!
#2, I think that by “groupings” she means bride and groom with his parents, that’s one, bride and groom with her parents, that’s two, etc.
Sorry, I’ve not shot weddings before but I’ve assisted and um, I don’t think there’s time or what not to go, “ok Susie, you’ve had 5 groupings, let’s get to #6 now.” “Oh, sorry Billy, you’ve used all 30 groupings, no I cannot take a photo of you with your grandparents.” Crazy. I have NEVER heard of a photographer doing that. I’ve heard of time limits, yes, but not pose limits during wedding formals. Maybe I’m unusual but I haven’t.
