2nd time's a charm??

I mustered up the courage and confronted my wedding photog about this little "mishap" and just as momma always said, this little Italian spitfire got exactly what she wanted...a wedding day photo re-shoot! Let's just say I'm relentless.

I was just a little, okay-a lot, disappointed at first but the more I think about it, the more I think this is going to be so much fun! Who else gets to wear their wedding dress twice? Who else gets to physically "get ready" with their groom?? Who else gets to "re-live" their wedding day without all the hustle and bustle that comes with it?? I do! I do! And I am SO excited!

Poor Beau...on the outside he acts completely cool about it...
"Yea, babe-whatever you want."

...but on the inside the man probably thinks I've lost it.
"You've got to be f*ing kidding me! I thought we were done."

Poor guy.

Anyways, photog has agreed to do the re-shoot on June 12 so I have plenty of time to find ideas for the man...I mean, obviously he needs it. I've got a pretty creative mind so I need him to meet me somewhere in the middle. Something non-traditional, non-posey but timeless. Gotz it?

1 of the 2 photos of us.
Good. But not great. I've seen better.
In the meantime, if you have any ideas let a sista know!
Shoot an email. Leave a comment. Send a pigeon.
Thanks for ALL y'all's help!


  1. I am so glad you stood up for yourself! Can't wait to see the retakes!

  2. Are you going with a new company?

  3. Oh I am so excited for you!!

  4. YAY! I am so exciting for you! They're going to be SO good! I would look at a ton of wedding inspiration blogs. Find photos you love to show him as inspiration!

    :) YAY!

  5. So glad you said something! You should not be unhappy with your wedding day pics! Stalk some wedding photg blogs and you'll find tons of inspiration :)

  6. Good for you, that was definitely the right move, and you're going to have so much fun this time around!! Technically, you weren't husband and wife last time you got pictures so these'll be the real deal :) Happy Monday! Virginia

  7. you have every right to be re-taking your photos! your the bride and you should be HAPPY!!! are you getting a new photogrpher or keeping the old one? what ended up happening to all the photos you guys said you took! sheeesshh I'd be mad!!

    youll look just as gorgeous the second time around! :)


  8. Good for you! You have every right to re-do your wedding photos. Can't wait to see them!

  9. Way to put a positive spin on a negative situation. Well Done.

  10. So glad you are doing a re-shoot!! Every girl should LOVE their wedding photos! I am going to e-mail you my wedding photographer's info! Hopefully you can find some great ideas! (:

  11. I can't find your email, but mine is!

  12. I'm SO glad you're doing this if you weren't happy with your pics. As you know I hated our pics too & plan to do a reshoot someday but I won't be using our photographer. We didn't have ONE pic of us both smiling & looking at the camera either. NOT ONE! We ended up using our friend's pic as our thank you. Good for you for sticking to your guns! :)

  13. good for you! i'm really worried about our pictures, i love our photog but the day was so crazy idk if we got enough pictures of just the two of us either :( i may hop on your bandwagon and have a re-shoot if needed. thanks for giving me the guts if i have to say something!

  14. I'm happy you did that! My girlfriend got like 2 with her hubby too and she didn't ask the photographer to reshoot them, I had to... That's the one thing I'm totally putting my foot down about is photos! Can't wait to see them!!

  15. thats awesome that you get a re-shoot! i still havent figured out which pic of us is "the great one" we have lots of candids, but not a great posed pic... i sure wish one stood out. get tons of choices and enjoy getting to do some creative shots without the schedule of the wedding day pressure butting in :) woohoo!

  16. Okay I know this post is way old but I have never met anyone else that had the same situation I did with their wedding photographer! We had horrible, no good, very bad pictures. Well "we" as in me and the husband. My mother in law had GREAT photos of herself with the groomsman along with family shots. The bride? Yea, the bride who paid for the photos? She, I, got crap.
    I've convinced the husband that we need "anniversary" pictures so thankfully I'll get better ones, but of course I'll never be able to get back pictures of that day, of my bridal party etc. Its bittersweet for me.
