I would think so. I know a woman who was a bit heavy the day of her wedding. Ten years later, she lost the weight, and had new wedding photos taken!


I say do it. I’m sorry you had such a terrible experience. Just know that none of that matters at all. What really matters is the fact that you are now married! Congrats! 🙂

Well, at least it’ll be a good story to tell later on. Fairytale wedding doesn’t equate to fairytale marriage, and vice/versa! I definitely agree that you can get new pics taken whenever you want to! I know several of the bees have done "day after shoots" or similar – Mr. MJ were planning to do it too until we broke down and hired a photog.

Sorry about the craziness! 

Don’t skip the photos! You’ll probably have better photos as you will just be able to have a good time and not be nervous/stressing!

First of all hugss!!! I’m so sorry about your wedding day.

I hope your husband’s grandmother is okay now.

I don’t think its silly to consider a post wedding shoot with another photographer. I probably would the same thing. You’ll get some really cute and personal pictures with you and your husband. And maybe if you can, go back to your wedding location and have some pictures taken there .. it look like the real thing! By The Way .. I hope you didn’t pay this other photographer and if you did .. get your money back!

I would most definitely hire another photographer, and have another portrait session! That is well within your right, and I don’t see why that would be weird!

Get dressed up again and hire a REALLY GOOD photographer for a couple hours. Splurge a little on a high-end one to treat yourself after such an emotionally exhausting wedding day. I simply cannot believe how you were treated on your wedding day. The stroke was just bad luck, but everyone else should have been there for you. I’m so sorry, but please, splurge and get the pictures you DESERVE! If you explain your story to some photogs, they might even give you a discount if you ask.

Did you have a contract with your photog??  If she didn’t show up on time, you should try to get your money back.

I’m so sorry your day wasn’t "picture perfect", but if you are indeed married to the man of your dreams, well there isn’t much more a girl can ask for! 

I think "re-taking" some photos is GREAT idea.

Good luck!

SOOOOOOOOOO SORRY all that happened.  That is terrible, but yes atleast you are husband and wife now.  But yes do the photos.  I think they will turn out way better with no time restraints and such anyways.  Plus gives you a reason to dress up again:)  Maybe do it on a friday or saturday and then have all your friends meet you for dinner and dancing or something and just have another mini fun reception and get pictures of y’all having a good time:)

Goodness, I’m so sorry for your day turning out like that! It’s every bride’s nightmare!

Absolutely do the post wedding photo shoot! Hire a great photographer to do the shoot and glam yourself up! Also, maybe even gather a few friends together and re-celebrate your day…go out to dinner in your dress and his tux/suit! It’s so much fun getting congratulated by strangers! Then you can have something memorable associated with your wedding.

Whoa, that’s insane. I’m so sorry. WTH is up with that photog, I hope you get your deposit money back ASAP. You can definitely plan to do a photo shoot with someone else. Maybe a trash the dress session is in order- it seems as though that may fit with the whole "feel" of the wedding lol! Joking aside, you do deserve better and that really, really sucks. Maybe you guys can plan a kick-ass anniversary party or something down the road. Hang in there!

I feel your pain, I really do. There were a number of things that went wrong on my day too.. But nothing like yours. That photographer is really unprofessional! And that is terrible that you have no pictures.

Hey, you should email Mrs. Avocado and ask her if she could come to Arizona and take pics for you! Her photography is AMAZING! Texas and Arizona are kind of close, right?  JennaCole.com

Best of luck!

in Europe you almost never take an outdoor session the same day that your wedding is happening.
It is actually a really good idea because you are more relaxed you don’t have to worry about timing and you are actually enjoying yourself.

In US I think photographers are so expensive that you always try to fit everything within X amount of hours.

I say go for it, just make sure you pick a way better photographer!
