5 Times to Consider Reshooting Your Wedding Photos


Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Unfortunately, not all couples end up with a beautiful selection of photographs from the big day with which to remember it forever. The reasons are as varied as the individuals involved, but you have many good reasons to avoid letting these stop you from taking a new set of wedding pictures. When might this be a great choice? Here are five times to consider.

1. You Hate Your Look

One of the most common reasons to reshoot wedding photos is a couple who winds up disliking their look. Because many people wear hair, makeup, or clothing styles they don't normally wear, they may not have felt like themselves. On the other hand, a hectic wedding day can result in being worn down by the time pictures are taken. A couple may have even gone overboard with trends or regret an outlandish idea.

Whatever the reason, if you don't like to look at pictures of yourself, you deserve a second chance — no matter how much time has passed. To accomplish this, you could simply fix your styling and have a couple’s photoshoot — or you might even gather the entire wedding party or family and get a complete do-over. 

2. A VIP Wasn't There

Not everyone can make it to the wedding. While the show can go on without most guests, sometimes there is a particular person without whom it simply wasn't the same. If the person — perhaps an ill grandparent or a parent whose flight was canceled — has the opportunity to be there for you now, consider setting up a special session to capture photos with them to add to your album. 

3. Your Photographer Wasn't Good

Another popular reason to consider a reshoot is when a couple is disappointed with the quality of their photos. This often happens when they used an amateur friend or family member in order to save money. Either way, it is usually the result of hiring an inexperienced or budget wedding photographer.

Some problems caused by bad photography on the big day may be resolved by engaging a professional photographer to update what you have. However, you can't fix certain problems, such as photos that simply weren't captured, without starting fresh. 

4. You Had a Socially Distant Wedding

Did you, like many during the Covid-19 pandemic era, have a scaled-down, socially-distant wedding? Whether it was a minimony, an elopement, or living room nuptials, now is the time to get the perks you couldn't have before. You might plan the big party you didn't get or you could simply get dressed up properly and take photos in a beautiful, romantic location. Both choices are equally legitimate. 

5. Some Disaster Befell the Day

Sadly, some wedding days just don't go as planned. Perhaps you were hit with a rain- or snowstorm. Maybe the wedding tent fell down. Perhaps your drunk uncle caused a fight and the cops were called. While you can't go back in time and change what happened, you can get a second chance at beautiful photos nonetheless. After all, the disaster wasn't the only element of that day, so why let it overpower the good?
