Photo Albums missing after upgrade to 6S - Help!

I upgraded from an iPhone 6 to 6S Friday (using an encrypted backup) and noticed last night that the 10 or so albums of photos I had on my 6 are missing from the 6S. They are still on my iPad. Any idea what the issue is and how I can get the, synced back to the new phone?

Thanks.

Sounds crazy but try restoring again. I was missing about 15 apps and none of my photos came over when I did the restore straight from the box but when I connected the phone back to itunes and did restore and picked the backup the second time, I got everything and all is good.

Is there a way to just force the albums to resync? Restoring took forever and I have a lot of apps and songs.

Looking at the photo count on the phone it looks like they are there but the albums are not.

Restoring may be your only option. Why did you have an encrypted back up?
