While your photographer can usually get some absolutely amazing photos of you in your gorgeous wedding dress, sometimes you're faced with problems that leave you without those wow images you were hoping for. Whether it is the weather, the venue, or some other wedding day problem, sometimes it can be hard to get those amazing portraits you were hoping to hang on your wall. So, does that mean you are out of luck? Not at all.
A fun new trend for couples is a day after session
, which is held either the day after the ceremony or shortly after you return from your honeymoon. It is a great way to get the wedding couple formals done in a relaxed and fun way a day or two after your wedding. It also is a chance to really take advantage of a gorgeous location, such as a nearby beach or meadow, that you were hoping to use for photos. Plus, getting all dressed up again to spend time together taking romantic photos without the stress of making sure your wedding day goes well? What could be better?
For brides who simply want to have some creative bridal portraits, there is another option - the trash the dress session
, which can be scheduled any time after the wedding, usually before you send your dress to be dry cleaned and carefully preserved. I prefer to call it a styled wedding portrait session
or a glam the dress session
, since few brides actually want to ruin their beautiful gowns.
It is a great idea to have your hair and makeup professionally done for any of these sessions. You may want to use the same makeup artist you used for the wedding day or you may want to experiment with fantasy makeup for a completely different creative look.
