I’m sorry they didn’t turn out the way you wanted. It’s great that she offered to redo them, having a photographer who adheres to high standards is a good thing 🙂

Yeah, no…I hate to say it, but since she’s redoing them: they’re not awful, but while YOU are both adorable, they’re kind of about the caliber of snapshots.

Is this person a professional photographer? Will the photographer be doing editing/touch ups as part of the package (not saying you need them, but the photos could be crisper).

It just looks like the photos weren’t taking with a great camera because the lines aren’t crisp.

Awesome that the photog has already offered to redo them!

I think they’re cute but I do agree that the lighting is an issue.  I wouldn’t sweat it if you’ve already made arrangements to have them retaken.  Mark these down as practice.

I actually think that would be beautiful light for shooting – no direct sun (I majored in Photography in college).  That is nice she’s offering to re-shoot.  I really like the background of the first/last ones, would be even more eye-catching if she had adjusted the photo to be straight either while shooting or in editing.  Good luck!

I’m glad your photographer offered to re-do them for you!

They aren’t awful but I know what you mean — they could definitely be better and your fiance doesnt look akward at all!!

Good luck with the next shoot !  We had ours taken at sunrise and the lighting was great.

@cosmocity: Hopefully it was just a fluke and really bad lighting. You guys look great, but I would expect higher quality photos from a professional.

Good luck with the next shoot! I hope it goes well.

I’m not really buying her story about the time of day being responsible. A good photographer should be able to get great pictures at any time of the day, and I was told that sunsets are usually the best light for pictures because its not too bright.

She should know how to shoot in low light. In fact, weddings are ALL ABOUT shooting in low light. Night time reception? LOW LIGHT. I tihnk you should look for a new photographer. One that knows how to use flash well, and also knows how to line up a horizon. It also looks like the lenses aren’t very high quality – the images aren’t very sharp.

On a different note, if you think FH looks uncomfortable and not smiling for your pictures, before the next round may I suggest a help round of cocktails before the shoot? It sounds both silly and obvious, but when my BFF was getting married, her photog (who is a friend) took them out for drinks before they went out and even he said it was a lot more fun and relaxed than he thought it would be.

@cosmocity: Do you mind sharing who did your photos? Maybe a private message if you don’t want to post; I only ask because we’re region buddies (hey Maryland!) and had our e-pics done by a professional photog who we really liked but I’m not sure if we want her to do our wedding pics as well. Thanks!
