So I about a month or so after my wedding, I received my photos from my photographer. I thought they were good at the time but then I got unhappy because they weren’t exactly what I wanted. I wanted the traditional shots that everyone got. The glamor shots… the amazing ones. I came here to vent and you guys cheered me up. I’ve put it away in the back of my mind for a while now.
But today, I was looking for a photograph to reply to a thread and I went through all of my photos again.
They weren’t that bad. Yes, i don’t have the shot of me up at the altar but I think that the time since my wedding has made me realize that overall it was a great wedding and the pictures that my photographer took were good. They served its purpose… to capture the memories. It made me smile, made me laugh… made me remember!
I think I saw a friend of mine’s wedding photos that were stunning and AMAZING and that is what got me in that mood that my photos sucked. I’ve now accepted that I chose my photographer because of my budget. It would have been nice to spend another $500 or more for a great photographer but I’ve come to accept that those are the choices I made and it’s not that bad after all.
I’ve been putting aside the task of putting a photobook together because of the “crappy” photos but I think I’m ready and excited.
I think it’s funny that sometimes it just takes time to appreciate somethings in life.
I’m just ranting and also wanted to give an update to my so called “crappy” photos are now photos I love and will cherish forever.
Anyone else have different positive view on their wedding months after their wedding?
Or is it just me? hehe

I am not married yet, but this has happened with different pictures. I love them, then I over analyze them, then I hate them and don’t look at them, then I find them again and love them lol and like I said in the other post, I want to see the pictures please 🙂

Coming up on my year anny, I have a new found love for my wedding and actually feel horrible that I let drama get to me and actually undermind it in a way. There was so family drama that happen that made me and my sis not really talk for almost 6 mths and I posted here too and received amazing support. I felt alone and like I was the only one that dealt with annoying drama. 3 mths after the wedding at a cousins wedding, when being asked details about our wedding, I kind of put it down saying there is a shadow on it and it was not the best day I thought it be and really wished we just eloped at the courthouse. Well now an amazing year later, I take back all that negativity and realize it was the best day and if I had to do it all over again even including the drama, I do it again in a heartbeat. Yes I change somethings, but it was perfect for my husband and I and we revisited our special spot a couple times this year and it means alot to us. Even so we have considered the city name for a boy name if we ever have a son, or girl as it could go that way too!

@JennyChicago: I have posted photos from a friend and family member which were actually very good considering I didn’t pay them. But I haven’t posted any photo from my paid photographer. I will soon.
@MissGreen: Yeah, I had a lot of Mother-In-Law and some Bridesmaid or Best Man drama which quickly turned my after wedding happiness into after wedding disappointment. Glad we are able to look at things different after the wedding.
