As I think back to our wedding day photos…I don’t think we got any of me with my parents. Isn’t that odd? Wouldn’t you think the photog would know to do that? Or was I supposed to tell her? I really don’t recall any posed family photos. Would you do some now after the fact? I’m a little upset about this one.

Have you gotten your photos back yet? Maybe she snapped some candid ones that you’ll love. I would wait to see the pro pics before doing anything.

stephinPA: I know the feeling! We were so upset because I didn’t think I took a picture with my grandparents and Darling Husband didn’t think he and his mom had a picture together, but when we got the pro pics back, they were all there – we just forgot we took them because the day was so crazy! So maybe when you get your pro pics back you’ll see pictures you forgot taking or as @hilsy85 suggests, there will be candids…hopefully!!

That is my one wedding day regrets, the pictures we didn’t get. I gave our photographer a ist of the few posed pictures we wanted. We got ours with our parents and the grandparents had all gone inside. I said that we would just get pictures with them inside during the reception and it never happened. The only pictures we really have with them are in the photobooth.We also didn’t get one of Darling Husband, me, and our kids (the baby was sick so we sent her inside so she wouldn’t get cold while we did pictures and then she went back to bed early.)

You absolutely need to tell your photographer what pictures you want when you first meeting for an interview. It is pretty normal that photographer will ask what family shots you want.
We just can’t read minds, though sometimes i feel i like i should be able to by now LOL.
Also it depends on the photographer, even if couple doesn’t want any family shots, i would take candids here and there, most of the time, they will come and ask to take a picture anyway.

I don’t have any of my parents posed. At first, I was upset, but I love the honest, unposed ones more. It just shows how happy they were. Try to figure a way to rethink the situation into something you do have and love.

pp’s are right, the photos are probably there, you just don’t remember taking them. with so many different photos to take and groups to arrange during the family portrait time, it’s easy to forget what you did or accidentally overlook some combination. even if you don’t have the picture, it’s not the end of the world. i’m sure you’ll have candids with them that might even be better.

We missed a lot of these. There are no pictures of me with my husbands family, none with us and his parents, and only 1 with him and my family.
Partially I guess it was our fault for not arranging these in planning the day.
