I’m sorry your photographer didn’t get as many cool shots as you wanted! That can be a hard pill to swallow 🙁

But if you had to give up one, which would you rather be without, your photos or your memories? As it is you have wonderful memories of the day and a beautiful family to boot.

It would be super easy to get a shot of you and your daughter wearing the shoes now! Have any friends who know their way around a camera?

As for the videographer, I think as time passes you’ll care less about the videography. I haven’t watched our ceremony video even once. Life goes on and you get so excited about the future that those few ceremony minutes don’t need to be relived again and again. I love love love our photos and it’s more than enough for me!

I know completly how you feel. We got married at our home with a beautiful barn door less than  20 ft away, rolling green fields, and 100year old trees, and didnt get any shots with us there, besides the ceremony. All our pics are the posey kind with family at the venue.  Even though I haven’t officially seen my pro pics yet, I’m already a lil disappointed. In my photographers defense though, we were a little rushed. We didn’t plan on a receiving line, but after the ceremony I some how ended up at the end of one, thanks mom and Mother-In-Law.  So the hour we had planned for pics, got cut to like 10 minutes and he had to go shoot the venue before everyone got there. 

Ask friends and family of what shots they got, my MOH’s hubby actually got some pretty nice pics with his lil point and shoot camera. In the end, the memories will always be vivid!

I alsosecond the flowers…my mom’s corsage was actually browsing the day off and shedad to take it off for pictures. Also, my bouquet wasn’t as lush and pink as I had hoped or imagined…but oh well! I’m married and that part was perfect!

I think the photographer did pretty good if those were your only gripes (two shots).  Also, didn’t you discuss locations prior to the wedding?  It’s not the photographers decision where to go for the portrait session in between the ceremony and reception.  You are hiring THEM.

I would ask your guests if they could give you copies of the the party walking down the aisle. I can almost guarentee that they probably have enough photos that will compile the photos that you want. And if you really want a professional photo of your daughter with your shoes why not go get a short portiat session done with the photographer, or another professional photographer?
