    I would get them redone if it still bothers you! What do you really lose for doing it?

    I think you will still be disappointed. Lets face facts nothing can recapture the emotions of that day. Everytime you look at the new pictures you will still remember the bad photos.

    Are they really bad photos? Or are you just angry and holding resentment becuase there are lots of your inlaws? How many photos do you really need?

    I’m in the camp that you only get one wedding (unless you get divorced), so I don’t really get taking pictures years after.

    What about getting pictures done at a vow renewal on vacation?

    Maybe do an anniversary shoot with the two of you in your wedding attire? I mean, you can never really re-do your wedding photos, as wedding photos are photos of the wedding itself. But you can certainly capture two people celebrating their wedding anniversary in their wedding clothes. I would do something with an anniversary cake, a stunning table set just for two (complete with calligraphy and flowers and pretty china), and really play up the romance of it all.

    @jeffloveschrissy:  You can’t redo the day so this concept doesn’t make sense to me. I am all for doing anniversary photos or commemorating a different moment but I wouldn’t want to dress up in my wedding dress again.

    A lot of photogs re-do Bride and Groom portraits. Email a few, i’m sure they will be willing to work with you. I help b&g’s out when they’ve had bad experiences with their photographers.

    I don’t see why not, especially if you think it’ll make you feel better.

    They’re just photos, and it’s just a dress and tux.
    If it makes you feel better, then get it done!!!
    Maybe make a weekend out of it and get a nice hotel room to take some photos in, etc.

    If your sis rubs her photos in your face though (really??), I would maybe not mention to her that you got a re-shoot. Instead, just hang the photos up wherever you like and don’t make a big fuss. If anyone asks you where the photos came from, just say “I’m so happy with the way they turned out – isn’t that one nice?”

    Go for it!  But I agree that it might not make you feel better about your original photos.  I like the idea of thinking about it as an “anniversary shoot”

    @jeffloveschrissy:  I would do an anniversary shoot. Get a nice dress (not wedding!) maybe even wear something really formal but don’t call it an wedding shoot. Way too much time has passed.

    if you avent done anything yet… go to vegas and do a vow renewal! I plan on doing that after my wedding (well a year after)  I want to get a super short and sassy dress and veil and get the “shotgun wedding” experience 🙂  It’s what I’ve always wanted but have to have a big wedding for the paretns :/

    The only successful repeat I’ve ever heard of was of a couple who were working with a photographer who lost their portrait (not their candids).

    When they decided to ha e them redone, “bride” was 5 months pregnant.

    PRO- she was GLOWING.

    CON- picture was taken from chest up, no formal gown shot.

    Hope you are happy with however you choose to proceed.
