I had them and absolutely love them.

There was a big weather disaster on my wedding day that ruined my chances of photos. I got several pics of wedding party, but none of just Darling Husband and I. So a week later I scheduled our wedding pictures.

I STRONGLY recommend them to any bride. For these pics, there was no stress (like there was on the wedding day) and we still had our newlywed glow. The weather was beautiful and I really love my pictures. We got to spend more time with our family and friends because we chose to do day after pictures instead of on our actual wedding day.

I want them! To keep there from being a huge gap between my ceremony and reception, we’re doing all of our pics at the church and reception venue. But I want some pics around town and Fiance and I are thinking about getting dolled up in our wedding gear and driving around town the next day taking pics at all of our ‘spots.’ I don’t know anyone who’s done them either, and I didn’t even know they were a ‘thing,’ I just wanted them!

I think its a great opportunity to wear your dress one more time and get a lot of fun and different pictures you may have not been able to get the day of the wedding. 🙂 plus who doesnt want more wedding pictures?!

We are doing them because I’m getting married at a Hot Springs resort and then next morning the whole wedding party is getting back into their dress and we are doing a photo shoot going down the water slide. Sounds crazy but I think it will be a blast. Kind of different though then what you are talking about.

I’m going to do them, though we’re waiting a few months so that we can do them outside. While many of the photos we have are amazing, everything is SO RUSHED day-of. We wanted to enjoy every moment and didn’t want to miss anything (including cocktail hour) for posed shots, so we had our photographer focus on the photojournalistic elements and moments that could never be recreated. We only gave the photographer about 45 minutes for all posed shots, including those with family and the bridal party. We figured we could always do more portraits of just us (me and my husband) later if need-be, and that’s what we’re doing! And I think it will be fun to get back into the wedding gear, and maybe even try a slightly different look (different hair, accessories, etc).

Also, we’re going with a different photographer so that we have a different “feel” in these shots–I want something more artsy. My wedding-day photographer was more action-oriented.

I’ve never heard of them!

a relative took a photo of me updating my FB status the next day. I was exhausted and looked terrible in that photo! (terrible but happy)

We’ll be doing them because logistically I won’t be able to cram in the pictures I want the day of the wedding. I want to go down to a really cool dry lake bed and do some artsy shots but there is no way we’ll be able to do it the day of. There’s also the plus of not worrying about messing up my dress during pictures.

I didnt get it either.. but you guys make a lot of sence.  .. I just figured they have the new bride, I got some last night from my new husband glow the day after…. because all of them that I have seen have a special glow that even the wedding day doesnt have..lol

They were pretty cheap too… mine were $200 for 3 hours (I’d already paid $$$ though for my regular pics and album)

Never heard of it either, seems to be somwhat of a TTD session.

I didn’t care about ruining my dress day of nor the boquet, it was dropped during pictures and one of the roses broke.

it wouldn’t have been feasible for me. my hair and makeup were done by professionals and there is no way I could have duplicated their work.  my SO would have had to rent his tux for an extra day.  I would have had to pay the photographer for the extra work.  

a day after shoot (that looks exactly like a wedding shoot) does not sound worth it to me at all. I had all of my photos taken prior to the wedding so my guests were not kept waiting. we had a bakcup plan if it rained, but fortunately it did not.

We do day after shoots mostly on destination weddings, but they can really be done for any event.  It mainly gives you another opportunity to get back in your dress.  It can also be useful for getting portraits done if your timeline doesn’t have room to fit much time for photos into it on the day off.
