For anyone who has done or is thinking of doing a “morning-after” wedding shoot, did you (or will you) choose to go with exactly the same look as you had on your wedding day, or did/will you change it up–go more casual, with a different hairstyle, or some other noticable change? While I love the wedding day photography I have, I feel like I didn’t get some of the “bridal portrait” shots that I wanted, so I’m thinking about doing a belated morning-after shoot (6 months after the wedding, since I want to do them outside). Part of me wants to kind of “fake” that they are wedding day shots and make them match the rest, while another part of me thinks having a slightly different look might help make the pictures more interesting and give me more options.
For those who have already done the shoot, I’d love to see a shot from the wedding day vs. one from the morning-after shoot. I’d also love to hear reasons why you either chose to go with the same look or mix it up. Thanks!

I’m really curious about this, so I’m going to bump.

Obviously I really changed up my look. The day-after shoot was much more casual and relaxed. I should note that our day-after session was more than a month after our wedding due to an unexpected family issue, but I had planned the look when our photo session was originally scheduled for the day immediately following our wedding. So that wouldn’t have changed a thing.

My hair/make-up artist included a day after session in the price so I got all dolled up for the shoot! I did switch the side my bangs were hanging on but that’s it. Oh, I did leave my veil off because of how sticky and humid it was the day after. I also think my bands worked better the day after. The day of they kept doing this weird in my face thing that drives me nuts in pictures and nobody bothered to fix! I wish they had darn it! I also don’t have any pictures of just me day of so here is one of my and the Mr.!
And my and my mom so you can see the weird bang thing I am talking about. It was like this until after the ceremony!
And the day after:
See? Better bangs the day after!
