Did they mess up all of your photos? Or just some of them? Are you using the same photographer for the reshoot?

Those are terrible. Unclear, fuzzy, blurry, you name it!! It looks like it was amazing though..the wedding, the dress. The Bridesmaid or Best Man colors!!

Was your photographer an actual professional photographer or a budget photographer? Because yes, these images are horrid and scream “amatuer with a camera”. I am so sorry that you are going through this, and hope that the reshoot goes well. Also, if you are indeed sueing the origional photographer, make sure you include all costs of the reshoot in the damages you are claiming.

Wow, I’m so sorry your pictures turned out like that. I’m quite sure an amateur with a point and shoot camera can take clearer pictures than these. How much did you pay for this photographer?

On a better note, I hope your reshoot turns out well!  


ETA: Did you see her portfolio before engaging her?

I dont want to be snarky to you OP, but i kinda feel like a snarky remark towards the photographer is warranted. However, i cannot think of one mean enough for the injustice that she did. That was wrong of her, and she should not be in business. I am glad that you are allowed to get a reshoot, by a reputible photographer. I cannot wait to see the pictures! and think about it this way, not many women get to have a wedding with the love thier life TWICE 🙂 You get to wear your dress, your bridesmaids can wear the dresses you made for them again. 🙂

yikes!! as a photographer (but not a wedding photographer) I am so so sorry for you & your situation.  I have done a few weddings (even after explaining that I’m a sports photographer, don’t have the equiptment or knowledge to shoot indoor weddings appropriately) & I can’t imagine, even though I don’t shoot weddings, calling myself a professional with products like that.  I can only hope there was a malfunction of the camera that she wasn’t aware of (not likely). 

I look forward to your reshoot & can’t wait to see, what I’m sure will be, beautiful photos.

As an art student I took one basic photo class, and I could take way better photos than this!  Good for you for suing!  Post these pictures and the name of the photographer everywhere you can to help other brides NOT BOOK HER.  This is awful.  I hope your reshoot goes really well!

There is a HUGE problem with people stealing other photographers work, popping up a website with said stolen work and then booking clients. The clients are totally blindsided. This is why it is so important for photographers to watermark every image the post on the web. I’m not saying this happened to you but it also doesn’t seem like this person was very honest with her skill level either. I’m glad you have the opportunity to do a reshoot.

those might be the worst professional pictures ever – I could have done a better job with a point and shoot! How much did you pay her?! I’d demand a total refund and book a better photographer for the re-shoot.
