My husband and I got married last October (hooray one year anniversary!)
We had such a beautiful wedding. The location was amazing, the food was delicious, our DJ helped make it a lively party, it was all FABULOUS.
Until I received our wedding photos back. I was expecting these amazing photos that would help me relive my wedding day, and they fell incredibly short. A little background, we had a friend of ours that does photography. I had seen plenty of her work and was pleased with it which was why I asked her to take photos for our wedding. Upon getting ours back, they didn’t compare to the images I had seen. Some were stunning, but most of them were TERRIBLE. Our first kiss was captured better by my mother in law on her iphone if that tells you anything.
We went to scan throuh our photos during our anniversary and my husbands exact words were, “Such a beautiful wedding and nothing to show for it because the pictures are awful”
IT SUCKS. Has anyone else experienced something similar, if so, did you do anything to get some better pictures, like a photoshoot later on?
Thanks in advance.

mrscross1020: I think that if you really, really hate them then you should probably take portraits. You can even do it to celebrate reaching that one year mark. If you don’t want to get back in your wedding dress, you can sitll dress up and go back to your venue or find a different location.

Same thing happened to me. The whole october wedding is wrong. Still need to change that. But we are saving for a couples porttrait. We have plenty of photos that remind us of the day but nothing to frame and be proud of. We will dress up and pretend we are film stars for an hour in a few months time. Problem solved.

mrscross1020: I’m sorry that most of your photos were “terrible”. Years ago, photos were so expensive many people just had one or two photos shot. If you haven’t maybe you could just get a couple of those “stunning” photos framed and hung on your walls to remind you of your lovely day, or as PP said, maybe you could get dressed again in your wedding gown, and have someone else take a few photos for your recent anniversary. You do have a happy marriage to show for it.

I would get some anniversary portraits done by a seasoned photographer, not a friendor. You get what you pay for!

That sucks. Pictures are important!
The way I see it, you can either a) build a time machine and go back in time and hire someone different 😛 b) do a new photoshoot.
Maybe an aniversary photoshoot? I know it’s not the same but at least you will have some nice pics of you and your husband.

That is my worst nightmare… I am SO worried about how pictures are going to turn out.
