We got married on Sept. and my photographer did a great job of geting us our photos by the time we returned from the honeymoon. Overall, he took some great photos and we enjoyed working with him. However, I can’t help but pine for the photos I don’t have. I know there will always be more photos we could ahve taken because photo time is limited and it’s really not people photos I’m missing. He did a great job of capturing the people and emotions which stood out in his portfolio of photos. It’s the detail shots I don’t have. I specifically requested he take photos of the details becasue I had a bit of DIY I wanted to see complete but all we have is the one of the photo frame everyone signed and one of my boquet and shoes set up by a Bridesmaid or Best Man. We don’t even have a rind shot! This is what I miss the most but I would have loved to have photos of the centerpieces which I barely saw since they were delivered by the florist, the favors we hand made, even the whole tent set up with all of the tables. I know these are not as important as the people but it somehow makes me feel better to type it out. I guess I should be happy we are not struggeling to find a photo of us like another bride I know who realized she had very few shots of just her and her husband and hated the couple she did have.
Do you feel like there were photos you requested that you don’t have? What photos do you wish you had now that the wedding is over and you see your photos?

My photog did an amazing job with NO instruction from me since I was super-busy and not focused at all on the photography. In fact, HE had to finally call ME two days before the wedding to go over things since I was such a busy mess. The reason I don’t think he missed anything is because he was really good on the wedding day of constantly asking me “Is there anything else here you want me to photograph?” every time we were in a different setting. And of course he is a professional wedding photographer, so he knew what I wanted more than I did! Honestly I don’t know how he covered so much ground all on his own, it’s almost like I had a 2nd shooter!

I got married Saturday and am stressing over the same thing! My photographer came highly recommended and suggested 2 hours for pictures. She was a half hour late and we were very rushed. We needed 3 hours minimum. I don’t think there is a ring shot, a good bouquet shot, I know there’s no accessory shot…I hope I am not disappointed when I see the proofs.

One photograph I wish I had is of our entire wedding reception before the people got there… we had such lovely centerpieces and place settings and tons of candles… it was gorgeous. I just wish i had one shot of it all together that’s not obstructed by tons of people, personal items, etc. Bummer. On the other hand, I never asked for that… so I guess maybe that’s my fault!

Our ceremony pics were incredibly disappointing. We also don’t have pics of our last private dance because “we have enough of you two.” Seriously guys?
