I love pictures. I do! I had been looking forward to our Engagement session for a reeeeaallly long time. I knew this might be the only time, besides our wedding, that my FI allows more than two pictures be taken of him in a row. I had really high expectations and spent so much time compiling a folder of shots that I would love to get. I interviewed seven different photographers, and finally settled on one I was getting the best package deal from for great service and the pictures.
The studio was so accomodating. They threw in the CD so I could get the digital negatives like 3 days after the shoot and wedding, were flexible with other requests I had and I walked out beaming, confident with my selection.
The best part, I met the photographer and we clicked really well. However, the Engagement session was really awkward. Most of my pictures, my fiance and I were confused with whether to look at the camera, each other, smile? No? Many of our pictures just don’t look right. They’re not baaaaad, but I’m just not happy with them. I’m at the point I’m ready to find another photog to redo them. Whatever, it was just an E-Shoot…but here’s the problem.
The photographer is the same guy that is doing our wedding, and I’m scared he’s going to not get the shots I want. Even though I emailed him pictures, he took similar ones, but they looked bad. They weren’t artistic like the ones I sent him! My question is, should I try to switch photographers? Let them know I’m not satisfied with the E-shots? Hope for the best? I don’t want to insult him, we really did get along well, but we only get one shot at these. Thoughts?
