How about asking if she’d be willing to meet you at a nearby park or other scenic location, and getting some pcitures there on a much more pleasantly temperatured day?  DH can rent a tux for the day, you can put on your dress again…

@Miss Apricot:  That’s a great idea!  I assuming you are meaning to hire that photographer for another shoot… it doesn’t seem like the photographer is at fault for mising anything.

@continuumphotography:  +1

@FutureMrsConner:  Yes, I think asking for another B&G shoot and offering to pay her regular prices for such a shoot would be a win win. You’ll get photos in the same style/processing as the rest of your wedding and not be rushed. However, please don’t expect your photographer to do this for free because it’s definitely not her fault you didn’t give her any time for photos/refused to do these pictures on your wedding day. If she offers you a discount on the session, great!, but I wouldn’t go in expecting any handouts.

You should schedule a “day after” session with your wedding photographer. I’d say a good 80% of my clients do them anyway. Dressed back up, maybe a bit more casual (as in doing your own hair/makeup) and meeting again for bride and groom portraits.

I can’t tell you how often it happens where the couple says “we’re done” with picture taking and then regret or get angry they don’t have what they want. I’ve actually built day after sessions into my packages because it happens so often. It’s really disappointing for the photographer as well, because we don’t want to argue with the couple when they say they’re done, but we also know how much they’ll regret it later.

I agree with the PPs – try to get her to meet and do a day-after shoot, but of course, you’ll have to pay for it, because the photographer didn’t do anything wrong.  Plus, you’ll get another use out of a very expensive dress!! 🙂
