For all the brides that have been through the wedding process…when you received your photos, which type of photo were you happiest with? Color, black and white or sepia?
Did you regret anything about your photos? More candid, more informal, photogjournalistic, forgot to take photos with certain people, etc.?
If you have any favorite photos or styles, I’d love to hear about them/see them!

We loved the photojournalistic, very emotional ones! I also really liked the candids of everyone dancing and having blast. The photos really conveyed the energy that was at our wedding.

These came out great! On a side note, I love your color scheme! I think my favorites will end up being the emotinal ones as well!

WOW! That second photo is amazing! The photographer really captured the moment!

I got my wedding photos back very promptly and we own them (which is great!) I LOVE how they turned out in general, but my favorites are the more artistic portraits which showcase my husband and I in the very elegant reception venue. I love both the black & white and color – it’s nice to have a variety 🙂
Some of my wedding pics are posted on my married bio.

Our photographer has a great photojournalistic style. I have no regrets or pictures that I "wish" we’d taken but didn’t.
Close-ups of all the details were some of my favorite pictures. I also loved that they captured the small moments of the day (my dad catching a few Zzz’s while us girls were getting ready, laughter between my sisters and I, etc).
The black and white photos were also beautiful, as those are always timeless photos.

I do like the posed, formal shots- they are very traditional and I think they capture how everyone looked that day- it’s really nice to have those first photos of the new family structure (bride with groom’s family, and groom with bride’s). However, most of my favorites are the more unusual ones that are specific to me, my husband, and our wedding in particular.
Overall, I was pretty unhappy with our wedding photos (I cried when I got the proofs). Most of them were totally generic and uninspired. My favorite photo turned out to be one that I specifically described to the photographer- it’s the one of us by the water. It’s special because it was taken on my family’s property- a place that is so special to me that we decided to hold the wedding there.
My other favorite is shortly after our arrival at the reception- we drove in my 1968 VW Beetle (it’s the car I learned to drive on). There was such fanfare, we were totally overwhelmed by the welcome- I think that feeling shows on our faces. My husband worked some Photoshop magic on it and we used it for our thank you notes.

I usually love black and white shots, but my wedding was outside and the day was so gorgeous that I really liked the colored ones best. I think that the black and white ones were best for hiding the ugliness that is the inside of the lake house we were married at, though.
I dislike most formal shots, so we took very few of those…most were photojournalistic/candid. My favorite ones were of just the two of us after the ceremony. We spent quite a bit of time for a bride and groom session, and those were what I cared about the most.
I regret not writing down everything that I wanted pictures of. My main photographer stayed with me and my husband for the majority of the day, and the second photographer was supposed to get the shots of everything else. Well, he got about half of it, but I put A LOT of attention on details that there are no pictures of.
I also regret not getting some pictures with my aunts. We are a very close family, and usually take lots of pictures when all of us are in one place (they live all around the country), and I just didn’t even think about it that day. One of my aunts had been a HUGE help throughout the wedding process and I know she would have really liked to have had at least one shot, but she was too busy that day to think of it either.

I actually really like a mix of color, b&w, and sepia. I also like the photos that have some color and some b&w like Rosy posted, the name escapes of the technique me right now, though. I also like a mix of the styles. As far as not getting photos with people, we had a list of families we wanted photos with, but a whole family was skipped and I was bummed about that because my photog didn’t catch it that night. We got a photo together during the reception, instead of the church, but it was with someone’s point and shoot so it ended up blurry. Had my photog been around all would have been well.

I love the color posed formal pictures. I was a bit unhappy that a lot of the candid shots were taken at an angle, which isn’t so great for frames.
But I can’t believe I forgot to get a pic both families together! Hello!

I cannot decide!!
I thought I’d love the romantic feel of Sepia – but the wedding wasn’t wintage or glam hollywood romance. It was vibrant! Colorful and fun! So what I loved were the photos that captured the unique aspects of our wedding and hidden moments that we didnt know anyone else was looking.
btw – all these photos are by Rae Leytham our photog – HIGHLY recommend if anyone needs a photog!! Based out of Pensacola,Fl but they travel. :) Sorry, I just LOVE them!

I wished we had done more formals. There is not a single one of me alone w/my bm’s either as a group, or singly. There is not one of my and my parents either. I also wish most were straighter. We used a photojournalistic photographer so they all were arty, some too arty, but overall we got some great shots.
