    apontillo24:  My photographer didn’t get a single picture of the mother-son dance.  I look horrible in lots of pics because I was just exhausted, I feel like she should have pulled me aside and given me a pep talk!  Oh and her second shooter was GARBAGE.

    I spent like 5 grand and my photos are all garbage, We were completely taken advantage of too. Honestly though, we’re married, we’re happy, whatever.

    • Wedding: November 1999

    My photog didn’t get a formal photo of the back of my dress, or of the groom getting ready. Tho she did get fantastic photos of everything else. She just couldn’t be everywhere at once and  she didn’t have a second shooter.

    After all is said and done, I am thrilled that I chose her bec her style is magnificent. But I don’t like a lot of my pics because I don’t like myself as the subject and I turned out to not really like my dress. There’s alot of different pics I would have liked to have seen in my package of 500, but I still love what I got, most of them blew me away.

    Naturally not EVERY photo can be the best, but in all seriousness, most of ours r totally amazing. Maybe only 20 or 30 could I say I hate. I’m not in love with alot of them bec I feel like me as the subject ruins them, but otherwise they r fantastic.

    Just seems like pics of myself do not have the affect on me that pics of other ppl have, if that makes sense.

    I think that blogs and wedding shows have given people unrealistic expectations, especially when you’re working within a budget. I had appropriate expectations and was thrilled with my photos. They’re not perfect, but I didn’t expect them to be. They do help me remember that amazing day, and that’s their real purpose.

    I am happy to say I absolutely LOVE my wedding photos.  I was debating between a sub-par, average, completely uncreative photographer or a high end photographer and glad I splurged.  I’m still getting comments on how fabulous my wedding pictures are over a year later

    • Wedding: July 2014 - Sedona Golf Resort

    My photographer had a death I her family the week of my wedding and sent another photographer in her place. I kept seeing her post photos of weddings after mine on her FB page and had to ask her about mine. When I finally received them, I realized why she was not sending them out in a hurry-they were awful! I cried when I saw them! The poses far from flattering and while the photographer that took my husband’s family photos did a great job, the one who took them of me and my family (we had a team of 3) did a poor job- the differance was obvious. Even my Maid/Matron of Honor said it seemed like he was bride because his photos were so much better than mine. I have 2 daughters that were a part of wedding and I didn’t even get 1 photo with the four of us together. 

    The photographer sent me 400 unedited photos-fortunately I found some great online editing sites and went to town. I will Never let people see some of my photos and due to the circumstances, I did not share my serious dissapointment with the photographer I hired. The day is over and regardless of the pics-I had a beautiful wedding and married my best friend and the love of my life.

    I’m definitely disappointed with my photographer…Her portfolio was beautiful and definitely something I was excited about.  We did manage to get a lot of good shots, and a couple AMAZING ones, but most of them were meh.  As she was taking the photos, she kept asking us how we wanted to pose…The whole day was already overwhelming, and thinking of different poses on the spot was definitely something I thought she should have been thinking of and directing us with.

    She actually did one more wedding after ours and then closed her business…

    apontillo24:  I love that we got wedding photos and that’s about it. My photos are all extremely over-exposed which seems ridiculous considering it was my photographer who chose the location and time of day of our pictures! Also, because our photographer brought along his “friend” who was training with him to be a wedding photographer, almost all of our pictures have everybody looking in different directions. We were all never looking at the same photographer. Grrr.

    I don’t hate my pictures but I was a little disappointed. The quality was good and everything but there were definitely shots that I wanted and didn’t get. There are maybe 3 pictures of my husband that I like. We also didn’t get much variety in terms of backgrounds. All the pictures after the wedding were taken in pretty much the same room.

    MrsBuesleBee:  I paid for one of the most best in the city and my engagement shots were perfect. He also did my moms wedding and several friends weddings and their results were gorgeous. Just goes to show you you never know. I do t even have a portrait of my husband and I on our wedding day.
