I bet your pics are awesome, you should post a few for us! I loved our photographer and like you, I didn’t end up with many portrait style photos of the two of us together. The day was such a blur that I don’t know if we even posed for pics like that. 

Do you remember posing for portraits together? If so, I think it would be ok to ask if there are any photos like that even if they didn’t make the final cut of the photos you received. 

You could also ask about the possibility of photoshop for your smile although I’m sure you actually look lovely! I loved my photos but found so much fault with how I looked – awkward smile, armpit fat, tanline, eyebags, messy hair, double chin, wonky eye, etc.  I realize I’m (hopefully!) way more aware of these perceived flaws than anyone else.

Most photographers will go above and beyond to please their customers. I don’t think it is rude at all if a client asks me to work on a photo a little bit more, or for them to ask me to go through the RAW images to make sure I didn’t eliminate something specific. As long as it’s not a gazillion things that we didn’t agree to in the contract, which it doesn’t sound like that is what you are asking. Just ask them if you can see some more of the closeup portrait photos that didn’t make the cut.

I understand you being upset. I too did not get any pictures alone with my daughter who is 7. But my husband got a few photos of him and his son who is 5. I also did not get any bridal shots that showed my gown and train in its entirety…all the pics had my dress cut off even though the photographer took her time to fluff out the bottom of my dress and train so that her husband could take the pictures!

Any good photographer should be able to edit your teeth shots. For our engagement session/love session our photographer was able to fix my husbands teeth. But she didn’t need to for our wedding photos as he had made it to the dentist by then. I also had to ask her for a close up of us kissing because all the pics she sent in our preview were taken at a distance. She was able to do this without distorting the image.

I too was initially upset about some of my images. Some were dull and lack-luster?? I expected bold colors and sharp images that popped because those were the pics I seen on her website. But I talked to her about it and told her I expected something different. And she went through them and edited everyone I did not like. She used some new trend on my pictures…matte finish. And I hated it. She went back and did what she could to make the photos more vibrant. So now I am ok with the pictures. You just have to be upfront. I too asked if there were double pictures that I could choose which I preferred myself but she had already narrowed down and placed the best ones (over 400) into my preview.
