Three Reasons You Want Post-Wedding PhotosJune 12, 2017
Your wedding day is romantic, unforgettable, and a host of other adjectives. It is not, however, typically stress-free. Yet, the one thing you want to turn out perfectly is your wedding photos. Â After all, you booked the venue, chose the colors, the season, and a dozen Pinterest ideas, all in hopes of capturing timeless images of your love story.
Then, the big day arrives and youâ€™re trying to squeeze in photos post-ceremony/pre-reception. Â Lighting, weather, and the small children in your wedding party often have their own ideas about cooperation. Not to mention, youâ€™ve been going non-stop, between the hair stylist, make-up artist, and last minute errands.
This is why post-wedding photos, sometimes called â€śday afterâ€ť photos, save the day.
Think about it: after your wedding is over, you feel like you can finally take a deep breath for the first time since you slid on an engagement ring. Itâ€™s the first day in months your mind hasnâ€™t swirled with decisions about caterers, flowers, or wedding party gifts. Itâ€™s just you and your spouse. Married. At last.
Doesnâ€™t that feel good? Even just reading it, those words: spouse, married. Imagine how much better it feels in reality. The cake has been cut, the first dance danced, the grand exit made. And then there were two.
>You Can Be Yourself
Day after photos capture the joy of being married. Theyâ€™re the purest reflection of the two of you, so let them reflect your personality. Are you travel-lovers, prepping for the honeymoon abroad? Â Then host a wanderlust shoot. Use vintage luggage and your passports or plane tickets as props.
Are you simply relieved the pomp and circumstance are finished? Then host a trash the dress shoot. Â Right here in Destin, walking out into the emerald water of the Gulf in your wedding dress makes for some stunning photos, and offers a supreme relief.
>You Get a Private â€śRe-doâ€ť
Did you miss certain shots on your wedding day? Day after shoots are ideal for re-donning the dress and suit to capture must-have photos. If you happened to get married in the city you call home, consider taking photos at local landmarks: in front of your favorite date night restaurant; under your street sign; in the park where the two of you jog after work. For a destination wedding, go to your favorite places in the city; crowded public areas create a great juxtaposition for a couple in wedding attire. The contrast highlights the two of you as a united force in the world. Wherever it is, your photos canâ€™t help but reflect your love for one another.
