well, as long as they aren’t doing your wedding pictures, it isn’t a huge loss…. did they do the pics for free? can you do another session with your wedding photographer? if your friend is planning on doing the pics and you really hate them, i’d try to find another photographer.

Can youshare some ofyour pics with us? Get a different perspective? 

To be honest, I only likeed a few of ours too, so those are the few I used.  Literally 5 of them (2 are of our feet, and one is a reflection, so really only 2 of “me”) but I ordered those 5 prints.. And those are the 5 prints that I’ve used for any time I wanted an e-pic.

Well you can ask for a reshoot, or just use someone new.

I think engagement photos turn out like that a lot.  Out of over 200, there were about 6 that i really liked a lot.  The rest were meh

yeah, no matter who does your photos you’re going to end up with some pictures you don’t like. that happened with my pics. some of the poses looked awkward and forced or i didn’t like my hair or whatever. actually at first, i didn’t like any of the pictures, but that was just me being critical of myself. when i looked thru them a second time i changed my mind.

We didn’t do engagement photos but we had a photog for our ceremony o/seas and our reception at home. We got 300 pics from our ceremony, initially we liked about 40, now we like about 150… They grew on me 🙂

our reception photos we got 500 pics & liked most but they were not of US but other ppl as requested. 

best thing to do is practise your angles and tell your photographer. ‘Up’ angles just do not work for me 🙂 at least now you know what you don’t like for ur wedding pics 😉
