We have been married for just over a month and our photog posted our photos online this weekend. My parents (mainly mom & stepmom) have taken a good look through them and they had some issues. Apparently, the photog did not take all of the “posed” pictures that were on the VIP list. For example, there are no pictures of me with my parents or me with my brothers. He did take some naturalistic/candid photos of me with my dad and me with my mom, but there is not one of us together. There are a few others off of the “must take” list that he did not capture. My mom, for one, is very upset and disappointed with it, as she paid for the photography and now feels like she didn’t get what she paid for. Well now my step-mom has relayed this to my dad and now my dad is upset. I’m not sure what to do about this, because obviously the wedding is over and done with.

I would be upset too if we were missing formal shots! Just to clarify, did you provide your photographer with a specific list of shots that you had to have (including each person’s name)?

Yes. He actually gave us a list of the photos he would absolutely take (these were on them) … and then we added a couple to that list. I should also say that the photographs are great, but there were ones missing.

If the pics were on the must-take list, your parents are unhappy with the photos, and your parents paid for the photos, I think it is up to them if they want to communicate with the photographer about the issue.

I would contact your guests to see if any of the got the pictures that your photographer missed. You’re parents still won’t be happy about the photographer, but at least they’ll have the pictures.

Contact your photog. There is a great chance that they still have them and either didn’t post them up or there was something wrong with them.

I agree with Inkypoo, sometimes photographers don’t post all of the pictures online. Doublecheck!
