I am an occasional photographer and I would make sure to make some sort of announcement that you are going to take pictures and if there is anyone who is not comfortable having their picture taken to feel free to let me know. I would take pictures of the event itself to try to get some action shots, people's interactions with each other. I love candid shots. Then at the end of it I would try to formerly get photo's of everyone. You can also try to announce that you want to do that while you are letting people know that they can decline it.
