Post wedding photography "we did" session.

Thu May 21, 2009 6:08 pm

I was just wondering, I was looking through an overseas photographer's website & they do post wedding photography, they call it "we did" sessions. My take on it is that it's a good excuse to wear your dress again & it's like an alternative to "trash the dress".

I was thinking of doing a "we did" session so that:
1/ I can wear my dress again (if I fit into it).
2/ I get to choose another photographer other than the one I had for my wedding... say a 3 hour package.
3/ We can get changed into normal clothes for family portrait type photos.
4/ My dog can be part of the photos because certain locations on our wedding day didn't allow animals.
5/ Because we didn't do engagement shots.

I would like your thoughts...

Mt best friend and MOH is a budding photographer and will be doing my TTD shoot so I might get her to do some 'we did' pics before I TTD!! I know I'll be really nervous on the actual day, so it will be nice to have some pics of us a little more relaxed - and any excuse to ear my pretty dress again :wink:

I think this is a good idea... I was thinking to do this as Plan B if I'm not satisfied with the wedding photos, or if the weather is not very friendly on the big day (and I'm still adamant to take lots of outdoor pics!)

I've been involved with a few after wedding photo sessions where just the bridal party went out in a limo and had a good time.

I think it's called "we did" because on the wedding day it would be "I do" so, after that it is "we did". Just a play on words.

I would definately do it. We got married 2 months ago on that day when it pelted with rain, there was thunderstorms and lightening.

Our photos turned out lovely on the day but we did not have the opportunity of having our photos in the garden so most of our photos are in the same spot because of the weather.

I'd do it for sure if I missed some shots from the day, or wasn't happy with the wedding photographer etc.

Go for it!

I had suggested this to DH & he didn't understand the concept. :( He said we have gotten married, why would I need to wear my dress again? And another example was, if you turned 21 & had a 21st b'day party, you wouldn't have it again. Bloody hell. :(

I think a TTD would be very similar, you don't have to trash the dress but it is a good opportunity to get more photos that you missed out because of weather or in some cases your photographer is useless.

I love my wedding photos and couldnt justify spending bunch of money just to get photos in my dress again... would only do it if my wedding photos turned out really bad.
