Having a second photo shoot might make you happier, but it really depends on what you didn’t like about your first pictures.  What was it that you weren’t happy with?  Also, if you didn’t like them the first time, my suggestion would be to book a professional photographer for this second shoot.  Even though having a family member is cheaper, if your sister is a beginning photographer, you might end up being unhappy with the photos for a second time.

I don’t think anyone’s opinion on this really matters but your own. If it makes you happy, do it

I guess it depends on what you are hoping to accomplish.  If you really want a good photo of your dress and you looking your best and happily smiling in the dress, then go for it.  Just keep in mind that obviously, this won’t be able to replace your wedding photos.

Personally, I would rather have no photos than staged photos with no emotional attachment to them. I would look at the photo and not see “Oh, here I look like such a happy bride. My wedding was an awesome day.” I would see “Oh, here I put my dress back on and staged a shot for a photographer.” 

To answer your question, yes, it absolutly would be okay. And the other bees are correct, it’s what feels right to YOU that counts.

my married friends all told me that they only look at the photos once after the wedding..

personally i think you should spend the money for one more honey moon and take some new photos.

One of the photographers I interviewed offered a “day after” shoot, which I thought was a really neat concept. The stress of the wedding day was over, and they went around town (DC), getting photos taken at the monuments, etc.

OP- if you’re not happy with your wedding photos, I see no reason not to try a do-over. You could make a bouquet yourself to save costs (calla lillies practically arrange themselves), and would just be out the cost for hair/makeup and getting your dress dry-cleaned again.

Or if you don’t want to go through all that detail, you could do a “non-wedding” photo shoot together. Still get your hair/makeup done- almost like an engagement shoot in reverse.
