Have you thought about renewing your vows!  Then you have a reason for putting on the dress and it is more meaningful!

I’m doing a Rock The Dress session.  I just didnt get enough photos of us from Our Day.  

Definitely go for it.

I’m considering a reshoot too. I love the photos that we have (especially the candid ones and the posed ones with my husband) but I didn’t really end up with any shots just of me–the typical wedding shot featuring the dress, a close-up of my face with the veil, etc. It’s partially my fault because I didn’t specifically ask for these shots, though I did ask for some “bridal portraits.” It seems a bit silly and self-centered, and usually I HATE getting my picture taken, but I really want them. I want to have a few nice pictures of myself looking young and happy (especialy before I have kids and my body changes). Anyone else feel like this?

One addition to my last comment–the major reason those shots are missing is because I was adamant that I didn’t want to spend my wedding day posing for pictures. I was totally in the moment and spent some really great time with my friends and family. We did 45 minutes of pictures before the wedding and didn’t take any posed pictures after the ceremony–after spending 5 minutes or so alone together, my husband and I went to the coctail hour. That pre-ceremony 45 minutes flew by–it was barely enough time for the family posed pictures! Perhaps we should have bought more time with the photographer (we had 8 hours), but I still think I would not have wanted to spend the day posing–I wanted to have quality time with my husband, family, and friends.

It seems like if I do a bridal session now, I’ll be able to get the shots I want with the knowledge that I didn’t “waste” time on my wedding day taking them. I’m hoping someone else feels (or felt) this way too…anyone?

I say do it! I kinda like the idea of adding a vow renewal too.  Secretly I really want to have one in 5-10 years.  THe wedding was amazing and I’m so happy about the marriage, but too much about our reception went wrong and/or wasnt us, including the photographer, ugh.  So I say go for it!

After reading the few other posts, even though I was initially wavering, I’ve decided a reshoot is worth it. If this is still weighing on your mind five years later, I think you should go for it. And renewing your vows would be so nice too–you would have a reason to get back into your gown and do it up!

Do the re-shoot!

We planned all along to have a day-after photo session because we wanted to spend the vast majority of our wedding day hanging out with our people, not shooting portraits. So Mr. Lk and I are having a 2 hour session with our photographer next month to get lots of individual and couple portraits done. Besides, a lot of money was spent on my dress and veil, so I want to get as much wear as possible out of them!

An encore session is very popular now. I’ve had a few friends who regretted their photographer choice as well and they ended up just doing encore sessions with a different photographer.

i say go for it! i recently read on a blog somewhere that a couple “re-took” their wedding photos a year after the wedding because it rained (and really really rained) on their wedding day and they picked the place they got married because it was so beautiful during good weather. so they donned their wedding outfits and took them on a beautiful day a year later, and got what they wanted. it’s not ridiculous at all, and you might even enjoy it since the pressure of the wedding and all that is gone!

Go for it! Really, what have you got to lose? Who cares if some people who’s wedding photos it ISN’T don’t like the idea? Its about you and your husband and what will make you happy. One day you will be old and wrinkly and wish you had gone through with it. Besides, Mum’s aren’t right ALL the time.
