Sorry guys, you don't get quite as much focus on the big day as the ladies.  However, if there are multiple photographers or you stagger when you get ready, be sure to get a few shots of the groom as he gets ready.

Get a few close-ups of the groom's attire before he gets dressed.  This is particularly important if the groom is wearing something special, like a uniform (pictured here are dress whites), but a tuxedo is important, too!

Get a few shots of the groomsmen as they prepare.  Shots of them getting dressed can be funny, poignant, and unforgettable.  Also, get some shots of their outfits close-up.

A few shots of the groom with his best man are important.  Since the best man is typically either the groom's best friend or closest male relative, their relationship is important to document on the big day.

The groom with his side of the wedding party are other important shots to capture.  Candid shots throughout the day as the guys get ready and interact with each other can be incredibly memorable, in addition to the posed shots later on.
