Can you shrink the photo? I’d love to see it. I’m sure it’s not as bad as you think!

Did your photographer know the small size of the wedding when he told you you would get close to 1800 photos?  I think that’s reasonable for a larger wedding (we received 2k photos from our wedding of 140 people), but I think that with a reception of only 8 people, I’d expect a much smaller amount.

I definitely do not think her dress ruined the picture! There are a lot of colors going on in general, but what really stands out is how HAPPY everyone looks! I have found with my pictures (engagement and wedding pictures) that when I look at them right afterwards, I notice the things that went wrong or didn’t turn out the way I wanted. But once some time has passed, I am able to look at them and not notice those things, and just see the love and happiness that was taking place ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the picture is super cute.  Also, the number of photos seems about right based on the quotes I’ve received.  A number of photographers have told me they will take about 2000 photos and that I will receive about 500.  I can see how you might be disappointed when you thought you would be getting 1800 and then you didn’t… but if you have 300 great pictures, that sounds pretty awesome to me.  It looks like you all had a great time!

I’m more distracted by the chick in shorts.

I noticed that first too. I think it is still a cute picture.

And as for the number, 300 good pictures is a lot. If he took 1800, not all of them were worth showing you. Blurred, blinking, awkward poses, and different things make not all pictures something you want to see and I think if he actually showed you that many pictures it would be totally overwhelming!

@honeybee1999: +1 

You looked great and there were a lot of other colors going on that went with the vibe of the photos. The shorts however are what distracts in my opinion.

Just because a photographer takes 1800 it doesn’t mean you are going to get 1800. 400-700 would be about right. They need to cut down the images. Basically they TAKE 1800 but there’s duplicates in case you blink or something. Plus some pictures just don’t come out for one reason or another, whether it be because the lighting was off or the subject didn’t look happy. When it comes down to it, no bride would really want 1800. And no photographer gives it. Unfortunately you didn’t get a professional, based on the picture shown :-/

Sorry you are dissapointed!! I think the picture is really nice though. You guys look super happy and you can tell you were having a blast with each other. You could always do a re-shoot with just you and your husand
