    If you guys are trying to re create the whole wedding pic thing then he should prob re rent the tux. Alternatively you guys could both just wear different outfits and dress up. It might look weird if you are in your wedding outfit and he is in a non wedding outfit

    I’m not really familiar with reshoots but I probably would embrace that it’s a reshoot and not try to totally replicate it. It’s not like you won’t remember that it’s a reshoot. The purpose of the wedding photos is to capture this time in your life, in my opinion. So I would take the opportunity to get photos at some different locations and have your fiance wear the different suit. Then if you do an album use the actual wedding photos and just have the reshoot at the end to add to them. That would result in a more complete album without attempting to replicate something that just doesn’t exist.

    We’ve decided to skip hiring a photographer because of RIDICULOUS cost and the fact that the quality is too much of a risk. I have looked at hundereds of portfolios and I’m sick of it. Mostly blurry, poorly posed or shot from too far away for my liking. 

    My sister and uncle are both photographers. They will be taking pictures and we will figure out how to print them ourselves. 

    We are putting the extra money towars our honeymoon in Algarve, Portugal 🙂

    What about saving money now and doing a 1st anniversary portrait session? Dress up, but don’t try and replicate the wedding.

    We had bad weather and a not-super photographer.  Like you, I wanted to reshoot a little on a better day, sort of a ‘what might have been’.  As the day got closer, I realized I didn’t want to wear my dress again.  Didn’t want to have to explain if someone saw us and asked if it was our wedding day.  So I just wore a nice new dress and he wore a decent outfit and we took new pics ourselves.  On our anniversary.  Still good photos, still holds sentimental value, but isn’t going to make me think ‘fake’ every time I see them.  As someone who was in your shoes, I agree with other posters – do an anniversary shoot or something, don’t try to recreate your wedding day.

    Well bridal portraits are typically done before the wedding, when the bride is still a bride and not a wife 😉

    I think this is a waste of money, but if you want to redo them, I’d go for different outfits. 

    Also- your new photog probably won’t include the previous photos in an album and vice versa- something to think about.

    You go girl !!!!!! I am doing a reshoot tomorrow !!!! So exciting . It won’t be exactly as it was but who cares . We had some great photos but lots were blurry and could not be blown up big so sad but with a reshoot we just hope to get a few more great pics to add .i have a much nicer bouquet this time and a few differences but who cares . I am aiming for better than my wedding pics and it’s around our first anniversary . In fact we are so into the reshoot idea we think next year Vegas and just keep its going for the fun of it . I love my dress and will bring it out as often as I can . I am eccentric and that’s how I wanna roll .

    I would rent a tux. 

    I think it’s a waste. BUT. If it makes you feel better and you are able to get past the issue, then by all means..do what you gotta do.

    I hope they turn out how you want them to! 💛

    I would go for suit with bowtie or white nacktie. Of course it is not the same as a tux, but you got him the suit so it proably means a great deal to him:)

    We also did a reshoot but didn’t plan for one. The photographer who took my boudoir pictures wanted to expand her portfolio for wedding photography and asked us if we were interested. We were thrilled as MIL’s boyfriend (now husband) who were gonna take our wedding pictures forgot about it and didn’t bring his camera! They only brought a cheap digital camera with not enough memory. Yikes!

    Still it documented our day and all guests who took pictures sent them to us afterwards. We printed them on photo paper ourselves and made a lovely album. The reshoot pictures are in a Picture Box provied by our photographer.

    The reshoot will never be from the wedding day, ut they will feel just as spacial to you. You will both dress up in (almost) wedding gear and pose together. The love you guys feel for eachother will make these pictures just as special as those from the actual day. I feel you when you say you don’t like your original photos. My dislike for some of our originals have only gotten bigger over time. I was so thrilled with finally having wonderful pictures of my husband and me taken in proper lighing, with proper camera and no blur to them.
