We Re-took Our Wedding Photos

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

My dad and my sister made it really clear they thought this was a really weird thing to do, but I really wanted to retake our wedding photos! We got married 6 years ago, and we hired a friend of the family photographer to take our wedding pictures. He did a good job documenting the day. But, there were maybe 2 or 3 portraits of Blake and I that I actually loved. Most of them were really awkwardly posed or photoshopped to death. 

So it may have been a weird thing to do, but I'm so so happy we did it! Chabeli has taken our family photos before and did an amazing job once again with these pictures. I wore my original dress, but had to do my hair a bit differently because it's much shorter now. Blake on the other hand had a completely different outfit on. On our wedding day he wore a rather ill fitting tux, but now he's in his trusty navy suit. Our friend Tammy made us a bouquet and boutonniere. I did my own makeup and my sister did my hair! I only wish I did my own makeup on our wedding day-I may have actually looked like myself! 

So it was really super hard for me not to post every single picture! I love them all. The hardest part will be deciding which ones to get prints of! You can see more of our pictures here or here.

Leave me a comment: What do you think of retaking wedding pictures? What do you think of ours?


  1. I don't see that as weird at all! Those pictures are great!!

  2. Wedding song is also one of the parts of the wedding that is so important and should be taken care of. It is a little thing compared to other big things that you should take care of but it will set the mood for everyone in the venue. Free Wedding Website can help in the proper selection of wedding packages

  3. this is really beautiful photograph and this is nice wedding art. It is authoritative to select only the best wedding photographers if you are preparation on authenticating all the events and ceremonies, comprising the pre-wedding shoot.

  4. This was really interesting information in this blog that to very happy for the nice technology in this blog. Patrick Ngugi Photography

  5. If, you are planning to get married soon, then you must not forget to hire the best photographer to take pictures on your big day and help you preserve the cherishing memories for longer.
