pisces315:  I’m not doing engagement pictures, but 6 seems like a very small number. Are you using the same photographer for the wedding?

I really like the fourth one too. The lighting (on all of the pictures) looks a little dark to me.

They’re nice! Engagement shoots are often pretty small/time-limited, so it’s normal to not get a ton of shots, but why do you only like 6? Do you just not like the way the photographer shoots? Are you unsatisfied with how you look on film? (You’re lovely, of course, but everyone has insecurities about *something.*) Was the setting not right? Hash that over before the wedding. 6/47 isn’t awful overall, but if you’re unhappy because of the first reason, you want to figure that out NOW :/

Like a pp asked, why did you only receive 48 photos? We received around 200 for our engagement session. Of course I didn’t love all 200 but at least half of them I did! I would be concerned about my photographer if I only loved around 10% of the engagement photos…but I think that is EXACTLY why I am on board for engagement photos in the first place, to try out your photographer before your wedding day.<br /><br />(And btw, your photos are beautiful and your shoes look awesome!)

I think these pictures look great! That said, 6 does seem like a small number. We got about 160 photos for our engagement. I have about 25 that I absoulutely love, and the rest I like a lot. I would say there is maybe a handul I don’t like. Are you usually critical of your pictures? Do you think that you would have felt this way with any photographer? if this photographer is doing your wedding too? If so, I would probably be considering someone else. You want to love your wedding photography. I’m sorry these didn’t turn out how you wanted…

pisces315:   Definitely the 4th for the save the dates

Six is definitely a concerning number if you’ve hired them for your wedding. We had a one hour session, received over 200 photos and I LOVE over 150 of them, like about 20 and the rest are just random ones that I don’t really like. 

Moreso than liking only 6, I’m concerned that you only got 48 pics??

I’d be searching for new photographers for your wedding!

i’m echoing pps here – we received 160 unique, edited photos from our engagement session and there are only 10 – 20 that i wouldn’t want displayed (that i don’t like how i/we look). we made a photo book with lots of photos, and could barely decide for our save the dates. i’d think carefully about why you don’t like them so much and make sure this is the right photographer for you.

I agree with missamysmiles:! You should love all of them…if not then definitely seach for a new one. They should capture your personality fully! I am a photographer and believe in capturing the raw emotion. Best wishes!
