HeartsandSparkles:  I wouldn’t worry although it is always suggested to give a basic list to your photographer. If you are unbelievably worried send them an email to ask?? Don’t sound pushy/ mad but it couldn’t hurt if it puts you at ease 🙂

When the day is going by so fast and you’re in the middle of everything you miss a lot. You might be surprised at how much your photographer captured that you either didn’t notice or don’t remember. If those shots have sadly been missed there’s not much you can do at this point. I found when I finally got to see our photos (6 months after the wedding!) there were heaps of moments I hadn’t noticed happening that they’d snapped without me realising. Try not to let it take away from such a happy time. Perhaps encourage more of your friends and family to share their shots with you. You never know what might have been taken by some snap happy guests 🙂

HeartsandSparkles:  in the days after our wedding I was upset with myself – I didn’t remember talking to certain important people . . . Then we started getting pictures in (we used wedpics for our family and friends) and some sneak pics from our official photographer, and there was a picture of me hugging one of the women I thought I hadn’t even spoken to! It’s definitely possible that your photographer got pictures that you don’t remember.

It’s possible that you’re right and he didn’t get those shots but unfortunately there isn’t anything to be done about it now. You may be able to photoshop the photos you want- for instance I cropped some people out of a photo to make it a just me and X person photo and I got my Photogs to photoshop 2 photos together to create one of me and my 2 best friends. So don’t give up hope yet!

Im sorry that does really suck. Similar thing happen to my bf. She got to worked up with trying to get us in our robe pictures that in cut in our time of the Bridesmaid or Best Man pictures and even her own pictures. We really didn’t get any of us once we got dressed.  She really regretted taking so much time trying to take the pictures with us in a robe that it took up all the time.

Wait for the wedding video.  You may be able to pull still photographs from it.

Ok, here’s the thing. It’s over. Stressing now about photos you did or didn’t get isn’t going to magically get you the photos. Try to relax and wait to see what you get before you worry. You might be surprised by the candids.

That being said, maybe I’m a freak, but I’ll be honest: I never looked at my wedding photos. We framed a few, went through them a few times with people when we first got them, and then moved on. The more important thing, IMO is that you have awesome memories, which, if you spent the night dancing, it sounds like you did. You’ll have video, and your memories…is missing a posed photo with someone really that big of a deal?

I felt this same exact way after returning from my honeymoon. I didn’t get any pictures with me and my nephews that day and our family photos were rushed. I lost sleep over it for a couple of nights. Now almost eight months later it seems like such a silly thing. After I got my pictures back I was so happy and excited that I didn’t even fret over the missing ones. Yeah it would have been great to have them but as my husband’s grandfather says, the way it shall be will be. He says it in Italian and its much more calming, haha

Is this frustrating? Yes. Should it be making you sick? No.


YOU ARE MARRIED! You just got married! Go be married! Eat cake, have champagne, spend the day in bed… I’m sure you’ll have more photos than you think, and if not, have a fun post-wedding shoot.

I think it’s really silly to stress over something that wasn’t important enough to you to make sure got done on your wedding day.  Your photographer may have wanted you to limit your shot list only to the family formals, but you could have approached him at any time with your Maid/Matron of Honor or any other person and said Here we are, take our picture!   I’m not saying that to make you feel bad. I’m saying it to give you perspective.  If it wasn’t important enough for you to make it a priority on the day, then it’s not worth stressing over now.  

A lot of people find themselves with a whole lot of time and energy once the wedding planning is over, and replaying the wedding in their heads is a great way to fill that time, but that also makes it incredibly easy to micro-manage and pick at every last detail.  

Let it go. Find something new to fill your time. Don’t even think that you need to reassemble people for a pro photo shoot– instead of living in the past, move into the future and go on with life.
