- Wedding: November 2012
So we’d been planning these pictures for MONTHS.. outfits, cute props, cute poses.. etc. I bought $30 worth of props and used two… I’d bought several outfits and only two really got used and I told her they weren’t the main ones I wanted.
Our photographers sessions are supposed to be 3 hours long, $350, and you are GUARANTEED 25 pictures on a disk with rights (not necessarily GOOD pictures, just pictures). She knocked off $100 because we had alot of miscommunication setting the pictures up. So we paid $250. I posted a week or so worrying about the pictures here.
It was definitely quantity of snapping pictures over taking time to pose and evaluate pictures. We ended up with 70 pictures on the disk. Alot of them also don’t include us, they are our props. She took HUNDREDS of pictures. About 20 are mediocre in our minds (Alot of awkward posing and things like my necklace was majorly crooked and would have taken a minute to fix before snapping a pic, but I didn’t know.) Everything felt extremely rushed. Picture taking time was only about 2. 5 hours instead of the full 3.
We LOVE like 15 and 7 of those are of my ring and props, etc.
I just read this board about how others got alot more useable pictures.
We didn’t get any Fiance with him FACING the camera front on, and this bothers both of us. Poor Fiance said that “She must not have liked my face!” 🙁
We didn’t get any for our Save the date idea (making a movie poster style save the date)
We didn’t get any worthy of a Jones soda bottle custom label.
We told her about ALL of these creative ideas at our meeting the week before our shoot.
What to do?!
- Should we ask her about them?
- Ask a friend to just take some pictures to use to DIY projects and give them a gift certificate somewhere? We paid SO much already though…
- Forget the thing entirely and cut our losses…
I’ll make a photobucket album of our favorite and of our EH ones.
What are your opinions?
Here are our EH pictures!
These are the ABSOLUTE best of. What do you think?
