What’s one of the main things you want to take away from your wedding day? Photos. Photos of you and your new bride or groom and lots of them. Let’s face it, sometimes, there’s just not enough time to crunch in everything you want in your timeline or you just don’t have the money to add extra hours to your timeline. We get it, and it is completely frustrating. So you’re told you’ll have to give a little but cutting photo with family and friends short. Maybe you end up having to give a little on your newly married photo session. Maybe you like the photos of you and your spouse but you didn’t get enough. Or maybe you just flat out didn’t like your photos at all.
The new trend to make up for all these situations is to plan for what is called a “Day After Wedding Shoot.” Believe it or not, many couples are starting to do this, and Darling Detail Weddings supports this new trend. But how do you plan for this on top of all your wedding planning?
Ideally, you’ll want to plan for a session the day after your wedding to show that newly married glow, but truthfully, it isn’t feasible for many because you’ll have to fork over another several hundred (maybe a thousand) dollars after having paid for your dream wedding. So, many will plan for six months after or even for their one year anniversary. Whatever you decide, the Day After Wedding Shoot is highly recommended. You can easily discuss this with your photographer while you’re at the end of planning discussing shots you want at your wedding or even when you first hire them. (You may get a discount if you go with the same photographer, so be sure to ask!) The Day After Wedding Shoot may not capture all those day-of moment special glows you wanted, but the positive side is the focus will be all about you and your spouse, the details of your smiles, your gown or tux, and it will be a great way to revisit your special day by capturing all the little things you wanted. Don’t count it out just yet!
