Has anyone not had getting ready photos--and did you regret not getting them? Or did you get them but would have been okay with skipping?
Getting ready photos are my lowest priority. I don't want photos of hair & makeup being done, & I don't love our getting ready location (one small room in a not-super-nice hotel). But now it's time to make the final call on the photographer's start time, & I worry I will regret not at least having detail shots & photos of putting on my dress.
Our photography package is 8 hours, which will cover first look & portraits, our hour-long ceremony, the start of the reception, & the travel between these locations. Getting ready is a third location, and will bump us up to 9 hours. This isn't an affordability issue, but a "will I be grumpy I paid (quite a bit) more for photos I'm not even sure I want" issue.
To further complicate things, we have two videographers who are "all day" (up to 12 hours) so they *will* be at the getting ready since we're already paying for it. But I care less about video, so it feels weird to have them but not the photographer...help!
