  • I don't see taking wedding pix years later but you could have an anniversary or retake some vows and take new pix.

  • I don't know about trying to recreate wedding pictures, but it's always a good time for updated family photos, photos of you as a couple, etc.

  • If you still have your dress, consider a trash the dress photo shoot. If not, do a nice romantic shoot just of you two as a couple and enjoy. No matter when the pictures are taken, it's good to have them.

    I'm so sorry that you lost your original photos. :( Shame that the photographer didn't keep negatives for you.

  • Oh I'm so sorry to hear that!  I'm sorry that something so priceless was destroyed, my heart goes out to you!  How about doing a couples pictures kind of thing?  Sort of like wedding pics.  Get dressed up, get a lot of pictures, etc.  Maybe even have a few friends over. You certainly deserve to have some awesome pictures!

  • YES!!!!!!!!!!!! why not? buy a dress if you dont have or dont fit into your old one and get him all dressed up and go take some more pics! you may not be as young as you were but why live in the past? you're still just as beautiful as you were the day those pics were taken.

  • Yes!!! Do it!! I think that it will be nice for your kids to have pictures of their mom and dad! Remember to get a box that is water/ fire proof and put copies in there!!

  • Have you contacted friends and/or family to see if they have pics from your wedding? Ask for copies and I thinks it's a great idea to take new ones as well. Water proof box is also a great idea.
