    I would check out the photos before you make that decision. If even 10% of the photos are salvagable, I personally wouldn’t bother. 

    But at the end of the day it is totally up to you!

    Well, I think you should at least wait until you see your pictures to make any decision. You might love them and be worrying for nothing.

    But really, I think it’s rather pointless to have a re-do shoot. The whole point of wedding photos is to caputure the day! I just don’t get the point of getting all dressed up again and pretending just to get a few specific poses.

    WesterosBarbie :  “Would having a post wedding shoot be stupid?”  Yes. Yes it would.

    Definitely worth it. For most brides it is the groom’s reluctance that would stand in the way. It looks like your Darling Husband is on board so why not!? However, I would wait to see what your aunts photos are like first before you start making noises to her and getting her to expect you want her services again. If she hasn’t got at least 4 great shots then there’s no point in getting her to do the next lot. If you want fantastic photos, pay someone professional. You should be able to get this for the price of an engagement shoot so it needn’t be very expensive. My engagement shoot cost 1/6 the price of my wedding photos and I got 50 great photos.

    I would say go for it. My aunt has the best (30 year old) post-wedding photoshoot that I still take a peek at every time I’m over. Your makeup is fresh, hair is fresh and you don’t look as worn down taking care of guests and making sure you’re running on time.

    Go for it! Absolutely! My and my husband had our photoshoot a month after the wedding. We dressed up and went on a little trip with the photographer to a little palace, forest and then lake. The pictures are amazing. So romantic! Just me and him. 

    During the wedding day there wasn’t much time for lovely pictures of just me and him. And it was so much fun!

    I would take a look at the photos and go from there. If you only like a handful of them, maybe change the venue? Have a new location and get some really romantic pictures with the love in your eyes of newlyweds? 

    I plan to take pictures at a few locations in nature because I love the beach and the forest and since I live next to both it will be easy in terms of traveling. And my photographer is a close friend that is a professional photographer and is only charging me half price. 

    I think if it makes you happy, you should do it!

    WesterosBarbie :  to us, photography is a priority, so we made sure to higher a photographer we trusted (and paid accordingly). So no, I don’t think it’s stupid to spend $$$ making sure to get the photos you want. But I am a bit confused as to how important photos are for you…if they’re important, then why didn’t you hire a pro to start with? And if they’re not that important, then yea it seems silly to spend money on something that’s not very important to you.

    We’re doing day after photos but that’s partially because our package includes E pics and we already go those done so we’re subbing that in

    I personally find it pretty weird… pretending it’s your wedding day still?
