@DeathByDesign:  I think your pictures are amazing. I would be upset too if I not only gave a list of a must have, but my DH asked him to grab a pic when he was standing right in front of it and then the picture never got taken.

There are a couple of photos that I’m missing as well, and it irks me. I love our photographers, but I didn’t get any photos of our centrepieces (all the silver I spent months collecting and hours polishing), our cardbox, and I wasn’t in love with the couple of photos of our rings. I can’t change the cardbox one, I’ve sold it, but I still have all our silver. So my idea is that when we get pregnant, I want to take my silver back to our florist, have her recreate the centrepieces, and incorporate them into a maternity shoot 🙂

I love all of our photos and there were SO many tiny details to capture, and while I feel like centrepieces are a very obvious thing to overlook getting a photo of, I can’t change what’s passed, and at least I have a plan B. I feel your pain though 😉

@DeathByDesign:  You’re one of my favorites on this site and I think your photos looks gorgeous!  I would be annoyed about the poster, too, and I hope the photos turn up.

Not be be self-centered or anything, but this definitely makes me realize I should make a list of details that are super-important to me for my photographer to capture.

I’d be upset too, and I’m sorry you’re getting the third degree over it. Ok, so it might not matter in 20 years, but you made a specific request for a reason and you paid for it to be the way you wanted it.

The pics do look really gorgeous though. Hopefully your photog has a few poster/pie shots kicking around somewhere!

@dodgercpkl:  I know I said I wouldnt comment, but I didn’t expect to be so blatently attacked so I’m going to defend myself against your comment here. The OP can thank your for the reason I’m still on this thread, as I WAS going to leave it alone as a courtesy to her.

First, you’re wrong, and I HAVE commiserated about missing photos, specifically the key, once-in-a-lifetime photos of moments that can never be recreated. Second, I’m tired of brides thinking photographers are teleporters or super-human and that we can magically get pictures of every little thing that happens on your day AND every bow you tied to every freakin cookie, cake, chair, favor, mantlepiece etc. at your wedding all at the same time.

It’s just not possible. And honestly, lets be REAL here. You’re talking about missing photos of MUFFINS and she is talking about a picture of a piece of posterboard. If she designed it herself and can reprint it, she has the file somewhere and can look at it anytime. Heck, the photographer can probably incorporate a jpg of the file into the album if she wants. I can picture it as a cool faded backdrop for the details page. It’s not gone forever and photographers are not stupid so we have to prioritize for the things that CAN’T be recreated.

Also, if she gave her photog a LIST of must-have photos, it wasn’t just ONE photo that was important to her, it was a whole list, and he apparently got EVERYTHING else on that list. No one is perfect and no one is superhero. I’m tired of being attacked by brides for simply trying to show them the other perspective to their situation. I do it because some brides actually appreciate it, because they are not photographers and don’t know what that job is like, while others simply want yes men to commiserate on how horrible their photographer was to miss a single photo. You’re clearly just still bitter about your muffins, and the fact that I probably told you at some point I didn’t think it was a big deal. If you don’t want opinions, don’t post on a forum.

@PassionatePhotoLady:  What does it matter if she wants the picture of the sky on her wedding day?!  It’s the point that she specifically asked for certain pictures and didn’t receive them.  That’s what you’re missing.

@Rouquine:  Yeah seriously, when you’re asked not only via list but DURING THE RECEPTION to please take that pic, who gives a sh*t if the photographer doesn’t think it’s important – you’ve been asked by your paying customer to get a specific shot…it would taken what, 30 seconds to walk over and take a couple shots before moving on? If other great moments were missed during that time, well, that’s not the photog’s fault, he was doing what his client asked.

I’m really confused why it’s a huge issue to say, ‘yep, the photog messed that up, he should have gotten that’ instead of a dozen hypotheticals for why he didn’t.
