    i said other because in my personal experience what you get is pretty much all they want to give you.. ei they didnt like how lighting or background or something wasnt just right so they didnt want their name on it and give it to you. you can ask but just be full aware that you might not get the response you would like..

    I don’t think it’s rude. She was paid well for what she does. I’m guessing she won’t hand it over for free if she has it though.

    Not rude at all. Our photographer sent us a family picture where the family “matriarch” had her eyes closed, very obviously! And we were planning on sending that picture to everyone. I emailed our photog asking if she had another one, and no problem, she emailed back. I disagree that there is a reason a photograhper wouldnt send it (if she has it.) As far as I could tell, there was no reason she sent us the one picture instead of the other. I think she just doesnt want to send 100s of pictures of basically the same thing, so she does a quick glance and just sends the ones she thinks are the best.  But she took thousands of pictures! She’s not going to sit there with a checklist, “Did I send them a full body picture of this pose?”

    @NY152:  Well, what you paid is irrelevant but I don’t think it’s rude as long as you don’t ask rudely. =) chances are though, if they had a keeper they would have delivered it. It may be that people had eyes closed or weird expressions in that particular combination. It happens to me even when I fire off 7-8 of the same frame just to be safe. No harm in asking though!

    There is no harm in asking, but if they don’t have it they don’t have it.
