So sorry you are upset about your pictures 🙁 As a wedding photographer I know how hard it is to get that shot, but if you made it clear, she should have done absolutely everything in her power to make sure she could capture it or some semblance of it. Or at least be honest about it upfront that she wasn’t sure she could.

 

And I totally know how you feel about the cufflinks. I’m not a huge keepsake person but I do have a few small items that mean the world to me. I had a ring that my FI bought me stolen out of our apartment by maitenance people and I still don’t think I’m quite over that one. I was planning on wearing it in the wedding, but now can’t.

Hopefully they’ll turn up soon! And I think it’s great that you are focusing on the fact that you did get married to a wonderful man!

 

If you have any photos that you think could be saved with a little editing, I’d take a look at them for you!

@kris325:  Did you use a professional photographer?  Objectively, I agree with you that these pictures are not great quality.  I could have just done a point and shoot with my digital camera.  It looks like nothing special was done for lighting, etc.  Plus photogs are supposed to take multiple shots of the same thing to ensure that a person’s eyes aren’t closed.  I’m sorry you’re feeling this way.  You and your husband look fabulous though. 🙂

Yeah, it’s super hard to save blurry photos. But it would be super happy to photoshop out the “green chesthair” haha. It would only take me a moment.

I can’t guarentee it, but I might be able to swap eyes from the second portrait onto the first one, so at least his eyes would be open. 

I could also probably make the group shot a little better, if you wanted me to!

 

The good news is that you looked gorgeous and you and your husband are a beautiful couple!

As an amateur wedding photographer, I do not see how she can call herself a “professional”. I am not trying to dog on your pics and you still look beautiful 🙂 I was kinda understanding about the ceremony blur because that sort of lighting is incredibly hard to get right and you almost have to have a tripod to keep it from looking blurry. However, it looks like this person needs to take some lessons. The lighting is wrong as is the way she framed some of the photos. Check out Facebook and look at photo pages people have liked in your area. A lot of times very talented people who are just starting out offer very reasonable rates. You could get all dolled up and put your dress back on and get some portraits done!

I used to work at a photo lab and it was always heartbreaking when people tried to fix blurry photos.  A PP is right, there’s very little that can be done to fix the blur.

BUT: blur is hidden/mitigated by printing on textured materials!  So if you really want to make a keepsake, get it printed on canvas (or a lot of places have canvas-like materials, just make sure you ask for that texture) and it can be more afforadable than you’d think.  Just something to try…

And like a PP said, it’s possible to switch open eyes from one pick and put them on another.  That was also a service you could do at the lab, so don’t despair about that one!

The cufflinks may turn up and dont worry about your FI face too much, you get to see that same face every morning for the rest of your life, Im sure youll see all the looks he has throughout your lifetime together

I’m so sorry this happened to you, I understand your frustration, I would feel the same! I’ve edited a couple of photos for you, due to the fact they were such small files there was only so much I can do, and you might hate it haha, but I just want to show you that there is hope Smile.  I can’t attach the other do but will try later.

PS: don’t worry I will delete them off my computer as soon as can upload them Smile

@FutureMrsSarah:  Can I just say you freaking Rock and Roll? That was an amazing thing to do. 

OP, you are your husband look gorgeous and happy, but I don’t believe your photog was a professional. That is definitely not a professional camera. Those picture should be free, and not just discounted. As far as some wedding regret, many of us experience that. We have so many expectations about that day built up, that there is bound to be some disappointment. There are just too many variables. The good news is that it will lessen over time, and you will be left with only great memories. Congrats to you! You made a beautiful bride.
