Sooooo…to make a long story short my Fiance and I have been unhappy with our current photog for quite some time now. We had already put half down as a deposit when we took our engagement pictures. The pictures were only so so. After 45 minutes and 150 frames, we got 83 pictures back and not ONE was of us facing the camera. NOT ONE!!! She also gave us very little direction as to what would make a good pictures for us. We also got overwhelmingly negative feedback from our families about the lack of traditional shots. I mean there were some prettty ones that I hate to walk away from, but I dont’t want to rely on someone to catch the memories of our day if they can’t even remember head shots. So two weeks ago we made the decision to scope another photographer for our big day. A friend of mine from work recommended her sister-in-law to us. She did her bridal shower, rehersal, and wedding pictures and they were amazing. We decided to give her a try, and we couldn’t be happier we did. We had our engagement photos taken yesterday, and it was a great experience. She knew how to direct us, and we could tell that she had a great vision. We had a three hour photoshoot, and she said she took close to 1,000 shots! We won’t get that many back of course, but she did send us a teaser of one of the first shots she took. I remember this was the first pose that she put is in. If this is the first shot I can not WAIT to see the rest!
For reference here is the pic that we used for our save the dates from our first photographer. Don’t get me wrong. I love it, but you can definitely tell the difference.
