I’m sorry you’re upset with your engagement photos. Are there at least a couple you can use for your STDs? Really, you only need 1 that works for those. I wouldn’t spend any more money on re-doing them or anything. If she is your photographer for your wedding you should definitely talk to her about what you want and explain you wish you’d have more of that in your engagement pictures. If you think it’s really going to be an issue hire a different photographer for your wedding if you can. I had some issues with my engagement pictures (all of them were full body shots and not really any close ups) I explained this to my photographer and thought it’d be better for our wedding pictures but it wasn’t. My BIGGEST piece of advice when it comes to weddings is tell your photographer EVERYTHING you want/expect. I wish I had written an exact list of photos so I would have got what I wanted/expected!

charismacharm:  Was it stated that you should be getting more in the contract? Did you submit a list of shots you’d want?

The number of photos you got was totally fine. For a similar length of shoot, we were guaranteed 40-50 edited shots. We received about 100, but some were color/black and white duplicates. We also got lucky with the number of shots that ended up being usable.

The real problem is that you don’t like the shots stylistically. This could be a big problem on your wedding day and you should definitely meet with the photog to work that out, or consider booking someone else.
