Hello bees! Married 19 days now!! 🙂 We are taking some post-wedding photos with our photographer today (a few bridal portraits of me and a few solo shots of him), but mostly couple portraits. We didn’t have as much time as I thought we would to take photos on our wedding day. My mom was having a terrible time with my bustle and that ate into about 30 minutes of our picture-taking time. I saw a few sample photos VERY briefly, and I think we may have some good portraits in there, but I’m not 100% sure. With my fuzzy memory, I’m afraid we don’t have that perfect photo we would want to hang in our home.
What type of photo do you have hanging in your house? Please post examples! Also, one more thing I’m worried about… would you hang a photo in your house that’s not from your actual wedding day? Or is a post-session just not the same?

We have tons of photos displayed in our home from all the time. Wedding photos, vacation photos, honeymoon, friends, family….

I ordered over 30 8x10s but I don’t plan to display any. I have no frames on any of my walls, it is just not my decorative style.

pinkshoes: Sorry, my question wasn’t worried very well.. What type of WEDDING photo do you have in your home? A formal portrait, a wide-angle artistic shot, a close up?
And also… if you did have wedding portraits before or after the day of your wedding, would you have that one up? Or should it be from your actual wedding day?

Vintage (ca. 1900’s) photos of my city and landmarks in my city. My city has a rich history and I love it, so my home reflects that. I have few small (3×5/4×6) photos on my breakfront and two on the little table in the entryway of family and one of us but that is it.
We are eloping to City Hall so we will not have traditional wedding photos/portraits. Personally, we are not a fans of wedding portraits on walls, so won’t be having any of that. And, we’re not into having photos of ourselves on our walls, either, so there you go!

whitemochi622: ooh, that makes things different. I have one large canvas that shows half body of us. Then a few smaller 8×10 and 5×7 framed and scattered around the house, one with wedding party, one with family, a wide shot. Display whatever your heart desires! There’s no rules or “shoulds”, just whateer you like!

whitemochi622: Not me by my Brother and SIL did portraits about a month after their wedding due to Superstorm Sandy coming through on their actual wedding day! They have their traditional Philadelphia City Call median shot on a canvas in their home as well as a few other couples shots from that post wedding shoot.
Then prints of family shots and a larger framed print of the bridal party in their living room. <br /><br />I know my FI and i will probably keep group photos for living spaces and pictures of us for our bedroom 🙂

We don’t have a ton of wedding photos displayed. We have an 11×14 of just us in our bedroom. It’s a formal shot from the church after the ceremony. Then we have a 5×7 on a small table in our foyer that is probably my favorite picture. It’s a candid of DH hugging me from behind with his head on my shoulder – I didn’t even know that photo was taken until I got the proofs back. We have a 5×7 of our familes together, a 5×7 of me and my 2 best friends (bridesmaids), and a 5×7 of DH and his 2 brothers in our family room. We have other photos of us displayed so I don’t think we’ve overdone it with wedding pictures.
One of my friends has wedding pictures of them all over her house, so it’s all what you like.

We have a larger portrait of us standing on a train, it’s a shot from further out so you can see my whole dress. We then have one of the whole wedding party together, and one of our families together from the wedding day. Love them all! 🙂 These are displayed in the living room on canvas.
I’m planning on putting a more intimate one of us (kissing) in our bedroom.

I think we’ll probably display the more artistic shots – almost definitely the starfield shot with us looking into the distance, possibly the shot of us in a hammock with the sun setting through trees and our reception going in the background. Those will be the two largest photos – I’m envisioning canvases. Smaller photos of various favorites – not sure yet. 🙂
