Go for it! It’s not silly to want pictures of you two that you totally love and WANT to have all over the house! Cringing when you look at them is not the feeling you’re going for, right?? πŸ˜‰ Plenty of people do bridal portraits or day-after wedding shoots…this is just a little delayed. No big deal! I bet you can even get a pretty good deal on a photographer. Good luck, and post those pictures when you get them! I’m sure they’ll be fabulous πŸ™‚

Oh man, I’m sure we all know how it feels to want to love a picture, but not be able to get past something that makes us cringe.

I think you deserve to have pictures that you absolutely love, and I’m sorry you couldn’t get that out of your wedding photos. I think a re-shoot is a great idea. In fact, many people do this anyway – call it a “trash the dress”, a “day after shoot”, a “re-shoot” – whatever. The point is always to get the photos you didn’t have time for or couldn’t do on your wedding day. DO IT! Good luck, and I really hope the next set of pictures are just what you were hoping for.

I don’t think this is weird at all.  It hink it would be totally worth it to get some photos that you love.

Go for it! I believe Mrs. Flamingo did a session like this after her wedding, you should look into the archives. It’s never too late to have photos you love!

Absolutely go for it…a “day after” kind of session would be a great way to get some photos you love and do it at a relaxed pace…nothing wrong about the timing – whenever you’re up for it – do it!

I would definitely do an after shoot πŸ™‚ Mrs Flamingo did the same thing b/c her photog didn’t get any of the shots she wanted.

Go for it. You should have some photos you love. And you could turn it into a trash the dress session too if you wanted.

Mrs. Champagne did one the day after the wedding and they’re the only decent photos she got.  I say go for it if your husband’s game!

Trash the dress shoot! I’ve seen some that look better than the wedding itself.

Of course you should do an after shoot if you’re not happy.  Like you said obviously the day of photos can’t be re-done, but you can absolutely have pictures you like of you and hubby in your dress after the fact.

Oh yeah, go for the second shoot. That even sounds like fun because you’ll get to dress up again!

I might see about what it would cost to do that myself. In my case it was a combo of the photographer I chose (a journalist who took awesome photos but not the best portraits) and me not thinking that I’d want to pose or do something besides just standing there.

I say go for it.  Besides, you won’t be as worried about your dress getting dirty and can be more adventurous (I’m not a big fan of trash the dress sessions, per se, but not worrying is always good).  If you have your photos in digital format, you may also want to try converting some to black and white.  You’d be amazed at how forgiving that can be.

Do it, do it, do it.

It can be any sort of style you want and will make up for all those pictures you missed.  I can’t see a reason not too…lots of people do TTD, day after shoots and portraits shots before the wedding.
