Were they all unique or were there some duplicates?

..sorry by duplicates, I mean the same pose... just shot at different angles.

 

I'm curious how many usable photos I should end up with..

we only had 5 hours of coverage - 3.5 wedding, 1.5 TTD.  We recieved +/- 750 images and I love +/- 400 of them.  I really struggled selecting my favorites for our wedding album; I used close to 150 in 40 pages.  Some are very similar with subtle differnence that have a huge impact and evoke something a little different. 

 

Probably crazy and not true, but I'm convinced that our coverage is amoung the best work our photographer has ever done.  This is how happy I am with our photo coverage, I'm totally obsessed with looking at them, and I'm sure you'll feek the same way once you receive them.

It depends on how many hours included. My photographer provided 12 hours for the day of which is why we have so many photos. It is dependant on each photographer.

We had 6 hours... i finally got my thumb drive from them and it only had 360 on it, and more than 100 of them were of the dance floor.  Needless to say I freaked out.  I'm getting the rest of the raw photos sent to me.. which is 1000, but I hate to say it, I'm not happy at all and we paid A LOT of $ for them.  They didn't even get a clear shot of us coming back down the aisle...and there were TWO photographers.  I just don't understand how they missed so many key moments.  We did a lot of research and they are one of the most recommended where we got married.  I'm completely bummed.

 

The photos were the most important part of my budget and I have maybe a handful that wowed me.  I won't say who it was until I let them straighten it out.  I'm not sure if he was off his game that day or what, but a wedding album should have hundreds that wow you, not a handful.

CONGRATULATIONS to all the May brides!  I hope all weddings went off without too many problems!  We had our share, which I'll update about when I find time to write my planning thread, but the wedding was mostly great and resulted in a pair of very happy newlyweds, so all ended well! cheesy.gif

 

I promised myself I wouldn't be one of those brides who disappears from the site after getting married, but it's been a whirlwind since the wedding!  Literally as soon as we made it home, my wife was hospitalized with extreme asthma complications, so the first few days home were spent at the hospital. After that, it took her a month to get well, and then we were overwhelmed with catching up on everything that got shoved to the back burner just before and after the wedding. Things are finally calming down, and we're getting back to a normal routine, so I hope to be around more. I learned so much planning this wedding and hope to pass on the knowledge to future brides.

 

The full collection of professional pictures is still on its way to us, but quite a few photos were posted in a slideshow on the blog:

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
