I’ve heard so many people tell me that they weren’t happy with their wedding photos. Maybe they couldn’t afford the photographer they really wanted at the time. Maybe they did and just weren’t happy with what was captured during the crazy bustle of the wedding day. Maybe it was a simple, backyard wedding where the only backdrop was the neighbor’s arborvitae hedge.
Here’s a fun idea! Let’s do a post wedding shoot! What a fun way to celebrate a first anniversary! Third! Fifth!
I loved everything about this shoot. There was no pressure of getting good photos together under a time crunch or shooting during the worst part of the day (from experience it seems that schedules dictate getting portraits on your wedding day are usually during the worst time of the day – when the sun is at it’s highest).
And we had location options! More than one, in fact. On your wedding day you are usually limited to one; and sometimes a great venue doesn’t always make for great portraits. No pressure, no stress. Just beautiful images. I wish more couples would do this.
