@SpecialSundae:  I understand. The weather couldn’t have been helped.

Have you asked your photographer what they would charge for a 1 hour photo shoot at your venue? You and hubby could dress up again in your wedding clothes and get the couples shots that you want. It’d be fairly easy since it just involves you and hubby.

Btw~I totally adored your wedding dress!! Loved that you could switch out the skirt. 🙂

@SpecialSundae:  It won’t be the same, but I bet in a few years you’ll be happy to have the extra photos. Plus you never know, the aftershoot might turn out to be a fond memory as well. Especially since it’ll be some alone time with your hubby, without the stress of worrying about getting to the reception. Think of it as kind of extending your wedding day! 🙂

All the people I know who have been married for years have one photo up of their wedding day on their walls at home. As long as you have one great shot for your wall its all good!!!

By The Way When I look at other peoples wedding photo’s I don’t notice the scenery, lighting, dress etc… I notice the face, the smile and the emotion shown in the eyes!!! I think that is what makes a wedding photo unique.

I think very few people end up with every single photo that they wish they got. Sounds like your case was probably tougher than most due to the weather. But I’m sure that the photos you got were gorgeous all the same. I’ve been drooling over your dress and plans. I can’t wait to see what you did end up with from the wedding day itself!

Because of the crazy weather out here in New England we actually started putting a post session {we call it a Rock the Dress session.} in our packages for the same reasons that happened to you. As an artist, I want to make those awesome portraits as much as you want them. They are one of my favorite sessions to shoot because you don’t have any time/location restraints or people trying to pull you in a million directions. Talk to your photographer I’m sure they are would love to do it. Or if there was another photographer that you LOVED but couldn’t afford this is a chance for you to get wedding photos by them without having to invest in a wedding day package.

I wouldn’t worry! You’ll get plenty of great shots of you as a couple in the next shoots. Darling Husband and I didn’t take official “wedding” pictures until months after we were married. Weather was a big factor in our wait too, and it was just much more practical. I’m glad we waited because our pictures turned out so much better than they could have on that day. Granted, I’m freakishly non-sentimental and we had a courthouse ceremony, but I really don’t think it will take away any of your love for your awesome pics to come just because they didn’t happen when you thought they would. Your dress is lovely! Be sure to share your rock the dress shots.

It’s really not uncommon to do pictures after the wedding. I’d say a good majority of my clients do a “Day After” session in their wedding attire. The images are always awesome, because they are so much more relaxed and not stressful because we aren’t worried about getting the dress dirty or making it to a reception on time.
