I think doing a day after shoot is a wonderful idea- especially if the weather interfered with your vision. The day of the wedding you’re rushed and your thoughts are elsewhere- having a few hours where it’s you, your new husband, and a photographer will give you amazing pictures. Plus- it gives you an excuse to wear your dress again ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t think it’s a bad idea, and I have to say the thought briefly crossed my mind too.  It was so hot on our wedding day too.  We were sweaty messes, and we had to cut photos short because I got over heated and felt really sick.

I think that’s a great idea! Of course, any excuse to get dressed up and fancy in your wedding gear again is always a good idea. But really, if you don’t think you’ll be happy with the photographers pics from the big day, don’t settle! Have wedding pictures that you love, and that you can’t wait to show people, and that you want on display in your house for the rest of your lives. Go for it!

Darling Husband asked me if I wanted to do the same.  We got married in the USA but we live in Ireland and he wanted to know if I wanted to do photos in Ireland in our wedding outfits.  I don’t know if it will ever happen but I think it’s a great idea!

I really love the idea of a “day after” shot in another location. If it works out, I’d love to do a trash the dress type of session to capture some additional photos in our wedding wear. I think you should do it, do your hair differently, maybe even go to a different type of location.

I had bridal portraits done almost a year after the wedding! Go for it!

That’s one thing I definitely want to do! There are so many other things you think of after the fact….

It is a great idea. Many of the really good images take some time to set up. One of the biggest issues we have as photographers is the amount of time allocated for pictures. I have shot weddings where I have been given 10 minutes between the ceremony and the reception. While that is an extreme examply, it is rare that couples want to take an hour or more. By setting up a time/date after the wedding day, perhaps even after the honeymoon to shoot is a great idea.

I love “day after shoots”!! You should totally do it!! Dear Fiance and I are taking them on our honeymoon in Hawaii. We live in California and we’re getting married here locally, however our photographer is from Hawaii and has flown in for our engagement photos and will do the same for our wedding. Therefore we’ll be seeing our photographer once again for the day after shoot (although it’ll be like 2 weeks after the wedding). We really want to spend a lot of time with our friends and family on our big day so we don’t want to escape out too much for private photos of us. We want to live in the moment and enjoy our wedding day. So it all works out wonderfully for us. We’ll be able to take pictures relaxed with one another and also get wonderful beach shots in Hawaii!!
