Hi Bees, just making out a list for my photographer of the photos that I need to be taken but I keep feeling that I am leaving something out. In your own experience, were there any pictures that you wished you had gotten, but didn’t?
Thanks so much 🙂

Our photographer was amazing, but he missed our first kiss. He got us almost kissing, but none of the actual kiss, so that was a little disappointing. Otherwise, my mom will say what a horrible photographer he was b/c he didn’t give us a photo of my brothers walking her down the aisle. Big fat eyeroll there…but might be something you want to note in your shot list if you want that.

I haven’t gotten the pictures back yet but these are some regrets I have, though maybe he got some of these. I wish I had my flowers with me when we went out for pictures between the ceremony and reception. My mom got all the bouquets and brought them to the reception for us to avoid us damaging them. I didn’t get a picture of my shoes showing (they were blue and sparkly). I had a kinda dumb idea for a picture and wish we would have done it but I didn’t say anything. Our flower girls left right after the ceremony but I wish they would have stayed for the pictures in the church.
If you get an idea for a picture while you are out just do it, it won’t hurt in the end if you hate it but if you don’t you’ll wish you did.

I forgot to ask our photographer to take a pix of my grandpa. He’s 97 years old and he’s now slowing down. We also didn’t get to take a picture with my husband grandma. I also wished our photographer take a pix of my bouquet because there’s this small picture frame or charm of my late dad handtied in my bouquet.
Make a list of all the important memories or details that you want to captures.

I wish she had gotten some that show when I or he was crying. He didn’t really cry except when I was coming down the aisle and it must have been between photos. I also wish my aunt hadn’t gotten in the way of me and my dad coming down the aisle… I also missed out having my mom, stepdad, and 2 sisters in a pic with the 2 of us, only because we were rushing there at the end. I was able to crop a picture to get that group. AND I wanted to get a couple with significant others of my sisters and stepsisters, but that never happened. In the end I’m not too worried.

Great ideas, thanks for sharing 🙂

I gave my photographer a shot list AND a list of important people with their photo, but he still missed:
- A full-length shot of me in my dress
- A full shot of my bouquet (only did these strange close-ups)
- A shot of just me and my three siblings
- A bridal close-up (just my face and shoulders)
- A shot of my husband and I from behind while sitting in our “bride” and “groom” chairs
I think these are really strange shots to miss…they seem like they’d be pretty standard and were DEFINITELY on my must shoot list. I learned that no matter how much you prepare, you photographer will miss something, so don’t get your hopes set on a specific shot. The photos I have are great–they clearly put more time and effort into the photojournalistic elements than the portraits.

My photographer was great but I wish I would have had more full body shots of my dress
