We’re in the process of looking for a photographer, and I accidentally forwarded a photographer along to my Fiance, even though I didn’t like his style that well, and now FI’s saying he likes his photos a lot! Ugh. Mistake on my part.
The photographer has an album of photos from a recent wedding on his Facebook page.
I think his photos are fine in general, except for the fact that about half of them seem sort of fuzzy, or at the least, the subjects don’t seem to be completely in focus. He says he doesn’t see it.
Am I crazy?

No, you’re not crazy. They are not sharp enough. Also, too much black and white.

They are DEFINITELY fuzzy. I wouldn’t even say slightly, some of them are quite blurry, imo.

Keep in mind Facebook compresses stuff.

@DomesticDiva: I’m not a big fan of these. Some are really fuzzy, not focusing on the right parts,, way to much b&w, not fond of his editing, most either have not enough light or way too much, and some are taken at wrong angles.
For example, the photo with the coupe kissing with the bridal part in between them in the background is not straight so part of the bridal party is being cut out.
The photo with the rings in the book, he’s focussing in on “Tungsten” instead of the top of the band, and the eng ring isn’t even in focus.
I’d personally find someone else.

You get what you pay for. I dont think this photgrapher knows how to find the “light” when photgraphing. It really is an art.

I think they look quite “grainy”. Keep looking. You’ll find the perfect photographer 🙂

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
@DomesticDiva: I would keep looking. He is not very good at working with natural light. He has way too many out of focus, low light pictures. Plus, his showcase albums have pictures where part of the bride and groom or bridal party is covered in partial shadows. Big No-No in photography.

Personally I think these photos are mostly just bad. Out of focus, bad lighting, and too much sepia/black and white to cover up bad lighting and noise, etc. Give this one a miss.

Thanks for affirming that I am not completely nuts! Even if Facebook compresses things, I wouldn’t think they should look like this. We are moving on from this guy…his price is alluring, but you are complete right, @Swizzle: you get what you pay for, and I’m not willing to have this quality of photos for our wedding at any price.

soft focus at best and OVERSHARPENED… which is worse than just soft focus.

@PassionatePhotoLady: LOL I guess it got it wrong. (I said not sharp enough)

@DomesticDiva: They wouldn’t look like those photos at all. I uploaded some of our engagement photos to Facebook and they look way better than that.

they look kind of grainy.

Thank goodness for the Hive; reassuring me that my eyesight is still good.
@vorpalette: That’s what I thought!
@lightmist: Hey, fellow Madisonian! Do you have a photographer yet? (Ha :))
