What is a Day After session?

A “Day After” session is an additional portrait session with a bride & groom in their wedding clothes at some point after the wedding. They are also called “Post Wedding Sessions”. Their purpose is to get more photos of the bride & groom, often when portrait time on their wedding day was cut short due to light or timeline issues or to get a bigger variety of locations than possible on a wedding day with less stress. Many destination weddings schedule Day After sessions to visit unique locations not available to them on their wedding day.

What’s the difference between a Day After session & Trash the Dress┬ásession?

A Day After session is more like a “lite” version of a Trash the Dress session for those who want to keep their dress cleaner and not have the potential of damaging the dress. The lines are blurry between the two and up to your interpretation! Both are a fun and unique way to showcase your personality in ways perhaps not possible on the wedding day.

Which is right for me?

If you want nice, romantic photos of you and your new husband, but want to keep and preserve your wedding dress without getting it too dirty, I recommend a Day After Session.

If you want fun, daring and unique photos without having to worry about getting your dress dirty or damaged, opt for a Trash the Dress session.

You call the shots!

When should I schedule a Day After session?

Day After sessions do not have to be the day after your wedding! They can be months afterwards, or even on an anniversary such as your one year anniversary, five year or even later, or just because.
