Get a photog that will let you change half way through ๐Ÿ™‚

Why not do BOTH! If you can’t afford 2 sessions, flip a coin, rock paper scissors, and the “loser” gets to do their shoot with a student photographer from Craigslist. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can see both looking really good – very well styled and interesting.

I think the outfit dilemma is easy – just wear both! I think most e-sessions include at least two outfits for the couple if not more. 

Regarding the location, you could try to see if your photog will be up for both (I know it’s a hike, but maybe if you offer to pay them a bit of $ for the “extra” service of a 2nd location they’d be up for it?) Or you could do a second session, maybe even with a different shooter. It’s not too hard to find a free/cheap student photog in NYC, so I think you can definitely get all the photos you want even if you can’t figure something out with your original photographer

Maybe you could give him a really detailed wedding task that will take his free time and energy, leaving you to sneak in a bunch of your own choices ๐Ÿ˜‰ Something technical and dependent on many variables, like a wedding day time line or something. And if that’s too far out… make something up! Like a wedding site, etc.

If it makes you feel any better, I love when outfits contrast with the background–super fancy on a grungy or casual background, or casual/funky somewhere fancy.  I think that it creates interesting results in the pics.  But if he’s dead set against changing, I think you found the best solution.  And next time, convince him to layer–wear pants he can keep on through the whole thing, an undershirt, and just different shirts on top.  Makes changing anywhere super easy.  Why are boys so weird about the most arbitrary things, anyway? ๐Ÿ™‚
