Can we see some of the pictures? Perhaps us having a peak might help us understand what you mean, and how to describe it to him, in a productive way.

It’s not uncommon for a phototgrapher to not supply unedited files, and if they did, I doubt they would give you permission to go to town on them.  What you want to ask is for him to edit them a bit different.

The question I have is how much did you pay?  how long was the session, and how many images did you get?

I would select your favorite images and ask him to reedit those using vibrant colors, not muted tones.  See if he is willing to do that.  If he left the image numbers in tact, you can get a feel for how many he pulled out and didn’t send to you.  You can ask if he has multiple versions of a few pictures that may show your face a bit different too.

But I would get a dialogue going here, and also pay him.  Holding the money as ransom isn’t going to get you far either.

@Mrs P:  These are def desaturated a bit.  Hard to really tell though without seeing a regular portrait.  I’m sure the original files have more vibrance to them which can be boosted even more.  As I said on my post above, try picking a few of your favorites and ask the photographer to reedit them.

It’s good you paid him.  You can also mention politely when you inquire about there being additional photo’s of the same pose with perhaps a different expression, that you were only 30 minutes late to a 2 hr session but only got half of the promised finished images.  So ask him to please work with you on a small number of your favorites so they better match your preferred style.

I personally think you shoud let it go.  Did you see his style of editing before you hired him?  Did you take a look at his portfolio? 

In the end, all that matters is your day of wedding pictures. 

As User stated, most photographers don’t provide unedited images to clients for several reasons, so I don’t think he’s being difficult or unreasonable.  I do also agree that asking him to re edit some of them is fine.
