I’ve been married for a few months, and although my photographer was AMAZING, my husband and I only have about 5 poses of just us— I am kind of bummed about this. I am on the fence about getting portraits done again with him and I, i know the wedding in itself is not as important as our marriage but I would really love more wedding shots of us together. Thoughts?
I think it would be nice to get more photos of you both together! Pictures are forever, and if you want more than 5 shots of just you two, then have portraits taken! Plus, I'm sure it would be really fun to get all dressed up again!
Hi Ashley! Similar situation as I love our photos but I only have like 4 of the guests on my side of the family. I’m thinking of reaching out to my photographer to see if she has more. May be worth reaching out directly to see if he/she have more of the two of you. I know our photographer is organizing our photos still from 8 months ago so they may not have sent you the full package yet. Good luck ❤️❤️❤️
Were you sent all of your photos or just a sneak peek? We were sent a sneak peek of some photos (about 20 or so) not long after our wedding, but once the photographers had time to sit down and edit, there were over 800 photos from the wedding.
This is one of the main reasons why we’re NOT getting a photographer. It doesn’t matter how good of a photographer you get or how much you communicate with them, from hearing stories about others and personal friends and family members, everyone always has issues with their photographers. It’s never usually the DJ, it’s usually never the hmua, for whatever reason it always seems to be the photographer!
A close family friends daughter got married and she didn’t get one picture with her own mother. Not to mention the fact that the mother/father paid for the whole wedding And yet they were barely any pictures of them and not one picture of the bride and the mother together. LOL and for whatever reason this is not an uncommon issue. This is the whole reason why we are going with the cinematographer instead! I’m sorry but I cannot see myself spending 5K on a photographer that will only give me five photos of me and my fiancé on our wedding day. OP You have every right to be bummed out about this and if I were you I’d call the photographer and express this to them.
Oh no! I would be so bummed too. Our photographer is having us put together a list of all the “must have” photos to make sure we don’t miss getting photos with anyone. Do you get all of the photos or just the ones the photographer wants to send?
From talking with my venue and photographer, post wedding shoots are apparently becoming a lot more common. They said a lot of people do them to either have more time on their wedding day with guests or to get another special time just the two of them. I’m so sorry your photos bummed you out 😔
I feel the same way! We had literally thousands of photos taken, but very few of just the two of us. I was pretty disappointed and honestly still am a little upset about it (and our wedding was almost 2 years ago...) I debated getting portraits done later on but decided against it because it won't have the same association with it. Like the thing I love about the photos we do have is the memories associated with them. If they weren't taken on our wedding day, they won't have the same association. That's how I feel, at least. Also, honestly as long as you have a few good photos, do you really need more? Like what would you do with them if you had more? You frame a few, and the rest just go in an album that you look at every so often.
