    We haven’t gotten our photo’s back yet but I KNOW there are some that I didn’t get.

    I know that there were pics I wanted of my shoes with our rings.. but my shoes were still in the box when I went to get them

    There were pics I wanted of the bridal party that we didn’t get

    and until I actually get them and look through them I get to torment myself about reception decor that may not of been gotten.. like my vinyl record seating chart and table number and just little things like that.

    The bridal party pics we didn’t do OH and more pics of just Darling Husband and I… we only did a couple =(

    I knew to make a list but the week leading up to the wedding I was just so busy and never made the time to do it ='(

    So  I feel your pain.

    The one I miss the most is with the blusher on me. We’re Jewish so we had a special ceremony to unveil, and none of it is there. I don’t know why, I saw him taking the pictures! There also aren’t a lot of the guests. We didn’t dance, just had a dinner, but I still wanted pictures of everybody there. And I have wedding band shots, but none with my e-ring.

    Lots! It rained all day, so we couldn’t go to the outdoor location I wanted. I had such high hopes, but there was nothing the photog could do. We definitely got some great ones from the reception, which made up for it

    No worries PurpleUnicorn… I’m good.. it took a couple weeks to get over it b/c I just don’t remember alot of the ceremony (going 100 mile an hour for days does that) but Darling Husband and I decided the for our Vow Renewal we are SO getting a legit videographer.. figure we’ll love each other more and better by that time so it’ll be just as great! tehe

    Mine is kinda silly – but I’m so bummed out I don’t have a picture of my place cards!  The ones I stayed up til 2am the night before the wedding writing and hot glueing!   I always see a place card ‘detail’ picture and just assumed my photog (or SOME guest) would take one!  But, nope!  Didn’t happen.

    I also wish I had more table / decor pictures – again, I assumed the photog would do that.  I have one picture of a portion of the table – but I wish I had more table pictures and flower pictures.  Bad assumption, on my part!

    I also wish I had a picture with me and all my nieces and nephews – one was sleeping for most of the time – the other was running around… so it never happened, even though I thought it did.

    I also wish I had a more creative picture of our rings – our photog too them on this napkin (it was personalized with our last initial, but it wasn’t my style (our bartender brought them) and the napkin was kind of wrinkled… just a lame shot – but I can redo that!

    Darling Husband and I actually retook some pics with a different photographer 7 months after the wedding!  I didn’t have that “living room” shot that I could blow up and put on the wall.  There are some really good pics, but I feel so much more comfortable now…no regrets.  And it was kinda fun getting dressed up again!  The photog only charged $200 because she had done my boudior pics (her wedding costs $3000ish).  So it was actually a great deal since it was an hour of her time on a Tuesday.

    No pictures of me with my aunts (my fault)

    The rest are the photographer’s fault:

    No pics of us with the kids–just total bridal pictures

    Too many pics inside although we had a beautiful day and venue

    No pics of getting ready, my dress or shoes (she was late)

    Not a single decent picture of my dress.  I am holding my oversized, fail of a bouquet in every picture. 

    My advice to all brides–have one person (one with a very discerning eye) who directs the photo shoot.  I have been in/been to a million weddings and if a non-involved person doesn’t supervise, too many things get missed.
