I haven’t seen all of our photographer’s pictures yet, but I know that we didn’t take many of just my husband and I, and we didn’t take a single picture of us each on our own!
We have a trip planned to New Orleans next May, which is the city where we met. I thought it would be a neat idea for us to find a photographer do some more wedding pictures in New Orleans while we are there! I would have to figure out how to pack my dress very carefully, and get it steamed while I’m there, and my husband would need to rent a tux, but I think the end result would be worth it!
Does this sound like a good idea, or should I just be happy with the pictures we got on our wedding day? Would it be a better idea to just go back to the park we took our wedding day photos in if I don’t feel like there are enough pictures? I am worried the wedding album will look kind of silly with pictures of us in our wedding attire in completely different cities.

That sounds adorable! I say go for it!
Some of our pictures are from lush green areas and others are red rocks, so it doesn’t look like they go together necessarily but it’s wonderful!

In My Humble Opinion it would seem kind of silly to do more pictures of you and and your husband in your wedding clothes a year later. The wedding pictures are just to commemerate the important day in your lives on which you were married. This would not be that day.
But I think it’s a neat idea though to have some pictures taken in the city where you met!!! Maybe go shopping and buy yourself a cute dress (I know I always have my eye on one that I reaaaally want an excuse to get), get your husband to bring a nice suit and get some great shots of you guys around town! I bet you would have a blast!

@Magdalena: Yes, this is what I was thinking, that it might be kind of silly. But I really want to add more pictures of the two of us together and us alone in our wedding attire. Maybe it would make more sense to do these pictures at the place we got married, and try to make it look like it’s from the same day?
On the other hand, it seems to be pretty common now for brides to do a “trash the dress” photo shoot after the wedding in their dress. So maybe if we did a trash the dress session in New Orleans, it would seem less silly? I don’t think I actually want to “trash” my dress, but I certainly wouldn’t mind it getting a bit dirty now that the wedding is over.

@EmEv I am in the exact same boat as you, I think i am going to bring my dress with me to Greece on our one year anniversary/honeymoon and take more pics of just my husband and I.

I was unhappy that there wasn’t a single nice shot of me by my lonesome in our wedding photos so I had bridal portraits done a year after the wedding and I was very happy with them. Go for it!

I think it would be great to take some pictures of you and your hubby just in different clothes. It might be weird to have your dress out a year later, IMO. A nice dress and a nice polo or dress shirt for you hubby just not a wedding dress and tux.

@EmEv: Trash the dress session, I didn’t think of that!!! Yes I think that could really work!! And like you said, maybe not even a *real* TTD, just maybe getting it a little dirty running around on the soulful streets of New Orleans… hey I like it…

Or…you could get a white cocktail dress and he could wear a suit and you could do do some really fun shots while still there. Some amazing scenery in Nawlins!
