This is something I really want to start offering to clients and I want to get your opinions on it. I've seen some other photographers offer a day after photo session where you would spend 2 or so hours with your photographer the day after your wedding.

 

The point of the session is to get more really romantic, sexy photos of you and you new spouse in the beautiful setting where you chose to get married. Example shots would be something like on the beach laying in the sand letting the waves roll up over you both or hanging out cuddling in the hammock under the palm trees. It's meant to capture the romance and passion of your love for each other after your first night together as husband and wife.

 

Is that something that interests you as brides? I think it would make a very cool addition to your album or even as a separate album in of itself.

 

thoughts?

I think it is a very cool option, also an option would be to offer time with the entire group (a lot of people do a group activity the next day), but as discussed in a previous thread, not everyone has tons of money to spend on photography. This might be an option for couples who are not able to get engagement photos done? If I had extra money in my budget I would get as many pictures as possible because I am a picture junkie.

should we start our own BDW 12 step program for photo junkies? cheesy.gif

kidding kidding.

I do have some clients that have family members that want me to come early to do family type photos. But, it's always nice to make the most of what you can with the B&G. DW's are so easy for this because I can usually come early or stay late.

Once we get a better handle on budget when people start rsvping we might try to work this into our wedding. I love the idea - esp in Mexico where you can get such great colors and light.

I love the idea of this and have seen some great photos like this...but I have to say once my wedding was over I was so ready to just chill out, not have to get all dressed up again, or worry about anything. In the end, I'd probably like to have those photos, but I also loved that once the wedding was done I could finally completely relax.

there are alot of brides that are going to do this...sarah, edyta...but for me it was not an option...i did not want to roll around in my dress because i told my husband i would sell it on ebay but i am having a hard time parting with it.

 

also, i really am not a good "subject". i do NOT like to get my photos taken. my husband was just telling me for the 80th time how great i look in casual pics when i do not know the camera is around...yes, backhanded comment...yes, i smacked him.

I am all for this too. But I would probably schedule it for the day before the wedding. I"m thinking once the wedding day is done, I might just want to relax and enjoy Mexico with a vacationers mindset.

I think it's a great idea if it's within your budget. How great would it be to have a professional capture you surfing, snorking, laying out on the beach or whatever, the day after your wedding.

I think it's a great idea! I'd probably want to do it the day before though, like others said it will be nice to just relax once the wedding is done!
