Out of 400+ pics, I only really liked about 75 of them. The photographer and I had very different ideas as to what looked nice. I don’t know if it is the high-def digital photography or what, but I looked HORRIBLE in them, and I know there must be a way to soften them up, something a, ahem, mature bride needs. All I know is that I was in pure bliss about the wedding UNTIL I saw the pics!

Hopefully there is a way to make yours look better so you will be happy with them.

Do you eventually get a copy of the retouched pictures?  Or do you have a print credit that will utiize retouched images?  

I wouldn’t worry about the small blemishes on your face, since those can generally be easily removed using the clone stamp tool in photoshop.  

See if your photographer fixes these issues for you, and if not there are services online that will retouch pictures for you (I’ve only tried one and it didn’t work out, but hopefully someone can recommend a good online retouching service).

🙁 I’m sorry! That’s so frustrating! At least your photog is willing to work with you to give you what you want!

He has spent FIFTY hours enhancing your photos? I don’t understand what could take that long. My sisters didn’t have any retouching or enhancing in their wedding photos and they are beautiful. What could be wrong? What kid of film was used?

You should let us see some.  I doubt they’re as bad as you think.  I’m sure you looked wonderful!

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I’ve found in the past when getting photos from events that I’ve been initially really disappointed then realised afterwards I liked them better than I thought. 

 

It sucks that you’re not happy with them though, I hope the photog. does a bit better with them!

 

There are free programmes online like Picnik where you can make basic adjustments like softening the overall picture and so on. You don’t even have to download that one. It might be worth a try playing around with it to see if that helps any?

Wow, this is a big fear of mine. I feel so frustrated for you!!!

Since there is more than one lady here with similar problems, do you guys have any suggestions on how to avoid this? Was it a bait and switch situation?
