    Are you talking about just doing a nice clothing photo shoot or trying to recreate your bridal look and take more photos as if it were the wedding day?

    I think it would be just fine to recreate pictures at your original location! I have a friend who said it rained on her wedding day, so she and her husband went back to the ceremony location on a nice day after the wedding, in her wedding attire to take pictures. I think it’s a great idea!

    I know in some cases brides have a horrible photographer or photos are lost etc and they recreate the day for photos. In this case you have photos of the day you really like already. Wouldnt it be strange to show someone all these pics and say like ‘this is us on our wedding day. This ones us 6 months later in our wedding clothes”. Wouldnt it be better to just go on a fancy romantic date in formal wear and get fresh photos? Sometimes it seems like brides think their wedding day photos are the only photos they’ll have of themselves looking amazing but it definitely doesnt have to be that way. Of course if you really arent happy with your photos then you dont need a poll to tell you you want to reshoot them. I don’t think anyone will judge you for it.

    ikuyo:  +1. I would vote for getting some nice formal outfits and having your hair + make-up done up very nicely, and then getting formal first anniversary pics taken sans wedding attire. I don’t think I’d be able to recreate the wedding photos without looking at them and always knowing in the forefront of my mind that they aren’t really wedding photos because they weren’t really taken on my wedding day. But I would love some beautifully done pictures in celebration of my first anniversary, and then maybe on every landmark anniversary after. Just makes more sense to me.

    I think there’s nothing wrong with that. During our honeymoon, we brought our wedding attire along and got a photographer to take photos of us with the cherry blossoms in Japan.

    I vote 3. Be happy with what you have! You have enough good photos to do your album and to frame one or two to put on the wall right? To me, that’s all you need.

    Voted for #3. In just not a firm believer that because we now have the ability to recreate something, that it should.

    Another new photoshoot, why not. But recreating wedding pics, that i arent from my wedding day anyway? For me I personlly wouldnt bother. I´d just embrace what was captured on my day.

    dreamkel03:  Have you discussed this with your wedding photographer? Hopefully he/she will be the one doing it or you’ve gotten permission? Often it is against your contract and illegal to edit or photoshop the photos. Just throwing that out there…

    I don’t see a problem with doing a reshoot! in 10 years, no one is going to wonder, “I wonder if that photo is from their actual wedding??”

    dreamkel03:  As a beach wedding photographer, I’ve had several clients do variations of what you’re talking about. I’ve worked with clients who hated their wedding origional photos, and booked me while on their vacation to do beach shots of them in their wedding attire. I’ve had my own clients who had rainy wedding days that opted for a “day after” session where they got dressed up and we went back out to different locations

    dreamkel03:  Did you get them pohotoshop? I have the same problem. I see how it would be strange to mmm retake the photos but actually I would like photoshop some and that could do. If you did photoshop. Who did this for you? A profesional? Could you advice so that I may do the same with some that are still worthy.
