Did you give them a list in the beginning?  Did you pose for this picture?

If you did give them a list and you did pose for it, I would definitely ask for the copies, even if the photogs didn’t think they turned out good.

Not to be harsh but if you noticed this while it was happening, you should have spoken up.  We didn’t get certain pics with family members but it wasn’t because of our photogs.

I’ve come to learn that it’s very difficult to get every image that you want.  Did you specifically tell your photog that you wanted that photo?  Did you provide a shotlist with your requested images?  Or did you designate a time in the schedule where that photo was to be taken?  If you didn’t, then I don’t think there’s anything you can do.  I think you’re right about the deal you got though.  Hopefully you’re really happy with all the other images you got.  I paid A LOT LOT more and still have photos that I consider missing.  Now, if you posed for the shots that you mentioned, and the photog didn’t give you any of those images, then I think it’s worth asking him/her to see if s/he has them.

For $500 all day, i’m not sure i’d be upset about it. you hired what it sounds like to be a budget photographer, and with those lines, things are expected to not be perfect.

Is it possible the photos didn’t turn out? Or were blurry, and that’s why they were removed?

Well, there’s nothing you can do about it now (assuming the pix don’t exist in the first place) so I would just let it slide. Honestly it’s really hard to get every single pic you want of the day, even with an 8 hour package. The most important images are of you and yoru groom anyway, so I personally wouldn’t consider this a huge loss.

i can think of way worse shots for the photographer to have missed. generally the day is a crazy blur and it’s hard to fit everything in. especially given the fact that you got such a great deal, i would let this slide and not get hung up on it. hopefully you have great pictures of you and your groom!

Well, it’s your responsibility to speak up just as much as it is the photog’s responsibility to take the photo. The time you gained by not having that photo was hopefully used for other great photos that you will cherish.
