Our photographer messed up big style on our wedding photography, so we have booked the 2 venues again for a re-shoot on 22nd September.
Luckily they have been so nice and wont be charging us for this…….
Has anyone here done the same thing?
I will post some of the awful pics when I get home from work……they make me shudder……
blurry pictures, no feet, heads cut off. UNBELIEVABLE!

Did they mess up all of your photos? Or just some of them? Are you using the same photographer for the reshoot?

I hope you hired a new photographer if it’s that bad….

Anyway heres the pics as promised….
No I wont be using the original photographer, I am sueing her…..after seeing these you will see why…
Sooo many faults. Fuzzy pictures, chopped off feet, look at the detailed dress picturE I asked for….! horrible.
The bottom picture would not have been too bad if she had taken it away from the wall, but she tried photoshopping some wall signs out and has cloned extra heads on the wall……not only is her photography damn awful, so is her editing

Was your photographer an actual professional photographer or a budget photographer? Because yes, these images are horrid and scream “amatuer with a camera”. I am so sorry that you are going through this, and hope that the reshoot goes well. Also, if you are indeed sueing the origional photographer, make sure you include all costs of the reshoot in the damages you are claiming.

She was advertised as a professional photographer. She even has on her website that she is a university tutor.
But this is not true, because I got in touch with the uni and they have never heard of her…..but are investigating her as its on the strength of that that she is getting bookings….
Just found the heartbreaing picture……THE photograph.
The one where he slipd the ring on my finger…..The most important one of the day….

Wow, I’m so sorry your pictures turned out like that. I’m quite sure an amateur with a point and shoot camera can take clearer pictures than these. How much did you pay for this photographer?
On a better note, I hope your reshoot turns out well!
ETA: Did you see her portfolio before engaging her?

I dont want to be snarky to you OP, but i kinda feel like a snarky remark towards the photographer is warranted. However, i cannot think of one mean enough for the injustice that she did. That was wrong of her, and she should not be in business. I am glad that you are allowed to get a reshoot, by a reputible photographer. I cannot wait to see the pictures! and think about it this way, not many women get to have a wedding with the love thier life TWICE 🙂 You get to wear your dress, your bridesmaids can wear the dresses you made for them again. 🙂

yikes!! as a photographer (but not a wedding photographer) I am so so sorry for you & your situation. I have done a few weddings (even after explaining that I’m a sports photographer, don’t have the equiptment or knowledge to shoot indoor weddings appropriately) & I can’t imagine, even though I don’t shoot weddings, calling myself a professional with products like that. I can only hope there was a malfunction of the camera that she wasn’t aware of (not likely).
I look forward to your reshoot & can’t wait to see, what I’m sure will be, beautiful photos.

As an art student I took one basic photo class, and I could take way better photos than this! Good for you for suing! Post these pictures and the name of the photographer everywhere you can to help other brides NOT BOOK HER. This is awful. I hope your reshoot goes really well!

Can you imagine how important wedding photographs are to me? I AM a wedding photographer, so these basic mistakes are unforgivable.
I would be mortified to have messed up someones special memories like this, but it took her almost 2 weeks to even muster up a half-apology. she did however give me a full refund……not that that gets me my photos back, but the re-shoot will do that …..with a great photographer that I originally wanted for our wedding, but couldnt because he was on holiday in Barbados…..so its not all bad…..
Its obvious to me that the auto focus was not engaged, yet SHE didnt even know what she had done……so that tells me she knows nothing.
I have knocked the auto focus off before, but on taking the first picture, you KNOW its not working, so you fix it.
She carried on shooting and hoped for the best. She didnt have the first idea.

There is a HUGE problem with people stealing other photographers work, popping up a website with said stolen work and then booking clients. The clients are totally blindsided. This is why it is so important for photographers to watermark every image the post on the web. I’m not saying this happened to you but it also doesn’t seem like this person was very honest with her skill level either. I’m glad you have the opportunity to do a reshoot.

those might be the worst professional pictures ever – I could have done a better job with a point and shoot! How much did you pay her?! I’d demand a total refund and book a better photographer for the re-shoot.
