That can be easily photoshopped out. Are these unedited? I can’t imagine a photographer just missed the giant blue bow in those photos.

Wow, that would annoy me. She should photoshop it for sure! You are not wrong in asking!

Yeah, I wouldn’t be happy about that, either. It’s so obtrusive.

Are you happy with the way the rest of your photos came out?

I would do exactly what you’re doing (including being heartbroken).

Well, to be fair, it’s not really her job to edit out your decor… it does look not so hot, though, you’re right about that.

Make sure you keep on her until she answers back & keep us updated!

@Belle2Be: No, it’s not, but she should’ve known better than to have it in there in the first place. I agree with the OP, it’s a rookie mistake.

A professional photographer should have A- noticed that the bow in the photos  right away and moved location, we live in the digital age! OR B- photoshopped the bow out of the photos when she was editing. You have every right to be upset and you should keep after her until you get the quality you want.

@luckylove: I would never rip down someones decor. I would move, but it looks like in order to get those pics she would have to be right in the middle of the aisle, which would probably be pretty distracting. At least the bows aren’t covering any faces, that I could see as an amateur move.  I hope she does have a few without though to make you happy 🙂

ETA it is weird that someone who does so great did that, for sure, it almost seems like she was trying to do the out of focus foreground, but with the flash it really messed it up!

Question, did you cut off the heads?  If not, then you may have more problems than that bow.   I am glad your other pics look good because these three seem very amateurish.  I would talk to the fotog about some sort of discount.

Ok when I first read the post without looking at the photos I thought this would be like you said a “drama queen” post but oh my goodness that is ridiculous.  I hope those she can fix them. I agree it is very distracting and you should have good photos.  Why didn’t she just move?  I’m sorry about your photos.  It would bum me out too.
