Having photography regrets...

Anyone else wish they could’ve done something different? Just got my photos back and I’m sad that we ran out of time to go to the park...I was so scared of being late to the ceremony but maybe we did have time...I wish I could change it. Now my photos are all at one location at the ceremony site with chairs everywhere...


Also there are no photos of us looking at the camera as a couple only!! There’s plenty of good shots but it’s all us kissing, looking away, at eachother, etc. Smiley sad This is the only photo we are looking and it’s ugly cuz it’s at a weird angle and he told me to look back and it was difficult due to my angle.Having photography regrets... 1

    Also I might add I wish we would’ve taken pics behind the site...but my photographer said it wouldn’t be pretty. I saw some other photographer take photos back there on the venues page and it looked nice 😢

    Maybe book a mini session with a photographer(same or different one),kinda like a bridal shoot/family. I am thinking about that myself too. Our photographer additional hour is about $600 and a mini 90-1hr session is mostly about $200-$300.

    Hey, I'm sorry you're feeling upset and disappointed with the photography. If it's any consolation, I want to assure you that even with the chair in the background, these pictures are beautiful. Not because of scenery or lighting, but because of the love you two have for each other. Things didn't go as planned, but I say you let it dust off your shoulder... If anything, you two could do a 1 year wedding anniversary photoshoot at the park!

    I'm praying that Jesus will give you peace and joy today Smiley heart

    I’m sorry you aren’t happy with your pictures but I think they are beautiful. I agree with the other person to maybe book a phot session to get the pictures you want.

    If it makes you feel any better these pictures are gorgeous even with the chairs. The chairs show “look we did a thing” and y’all are so excited. Your pictures show true and raw emotions. I agree with other users. Maybe book a mini session and get dolled up again and take pics again elsewhere

    Thanks everyone. Maybe a one year photo shoot, I don’t have the strength and money to do this over again for hair, makeup, tux rental..

    These photos are beautiful!!! I agree with the above comments, even with the chairs in the background we still see your true emotions with each other and that's all that people will pay attention to. I can definitely tell how in love and happy you both are.

    I'm still waiting on my pro photos so I'm hoping they all turned out okay. I also think booking a mini session in a totally different scenery like during your one year anniversary would be very cool. I'm thinking about doing this and doing an adventure photoshoot next year in our wedding attire all over again!

    I feel the same and still stress almost 2 years later about it every now and then. Eventually you will feel a lite better about it.
    But, you photos are gorgeous!

    I think you’re being way to harsh on these pics. They are really pretty. I especially love the one with the veil wrapped around you.

    These photos you have are so pretty. But I absolutely know what you’re talking about because they were a lot of poses that I wish that we got and we didn’t. But I do love the ones that we do have however it just seems like if there was more time I would’ve gotten more photos in mind

    Like other posters have said, your pictures are beautiful and I'm sorry you aren't pleased with them. For the pictures with the chairs, can your photographer edit the chairs out? That may make you feel a little better about them. Just a thought.

    I think the photos are beautiful and I hardly notice the chairs because the focus is definitely you two.

    Man this is seriously one of my fears, that I don't know what to do, we're scheduled to have a first look and our bridal party shots in a span of three hours. I wonder if it's possible to just have the bridal party shots first. and then go somewhere else for the first look TT-TT

    While I think you have some very pretty photos, I definitely understand your disappointment. I would totally recommend doing an anniversary shoot next year! My husband and I just got home from a “day after” shoot with our photographers (really more like a month after) and it was incredible! We went to Yosemite and spent hours going around the park. Because we weren’t on a time crunch, we were able to really enjoy ourselves and the process...and our photographers were able to express their creativity since we weren’t at a typical venue. I highly, highly recommend doing something along those lines (we’re purchasing a shoot for my sister and BIL for Christmas with our photographers because they didn’t love their wedding photos either).

    Thanks everyone. Hopefully in time I get over it. Just wish we could’ve been behind the venue with the trees. My photographer didn’t want to and said there was nothing back there but I’ve seen others take photos and it looked nice. I should’ve been more adamant about that. I can have the chairs edited out, I know how but it just takes forever. I’m trying to focus on the many good shots we have...
