Your photos are great! I had a similar experience too and I’ve photographed weddings!
In my case I told the second shooter that I wanted detailed pictures of the centerpieces, place settings, etc plus wide angle shots of the room completely setup. The problem? All my wonderful chivari chairs are stacked in a corner. Major fail. Not totally the photographers fault but still I was looking at the shots going “how do you miss that the chairs aren’t setup?”
Did you have a videographer? Was it caught on video maybe? Or did any of your guests take pictures of it?
How frustrating! You paid for a service and it wasn’t up to par.
I just wanted to add that OH MY GOSH are you a model?! You are gorgeous. And so are your pictures. Stunning!
Overall though, my photographer was awesome, and it looks like the OP’s was, too. So I’m just going to enjoy all the shots they did get!
You look AMAZING in the second picture, wow! And I love all the others 🙂
I’m a photographer, and a few years ago, I was a bride. So I can see it from both sides.
But there’s just no way we can get everything. I carry a very, very detailed list with me on the wedding day and I try not to miss shots. I’ll still get emails every once in awhile saying “My 2 cousins danced together for about 30 seconds…did you get a photo of it?” And I feel badly because I can’t get everyone dancing.
I also can’t always get a church exterior.
Sometimes, I get a shot (like the whole room set up as requested) when I can get it, but if the venue hasn’t set up chairs yet, then there’s nothing I can do, because by the time I get back to it, guests are already seated in the chairs.
There’s also been complaints here that the photographer got the item requested, but not maybe *exactly* how the bride wanted it. For example, the photographer got the rings, and the pillow, but not the rings on the pillow. Or they got the guests dancing, but not the ones at the table.
It’s just really hard to balance everything. There’s a few details at my wedding that didn’t get captured, but the general spirit of them was captured and they’re captured in the wider shots, so I’m absolutely fine with that. 🙂 To each his or her own though.
Something similar happened to me and althoug it was a long road I did eventually get more photos. Just ask knidly then ask what about (photos you are missing). But we warned sometimes even once you get the photos there will still be photos that just arent their, I have pictures of grass but none of my grandpas “giving me away” or of me and both sister which I know were taken. Good luck
I hope maybe he has the photos for you, so sorry if he doesn’t. :/
Otherwise oh my my my, you look STUNNINGLY AMAZING!!!!!!! The pictures are gorgeous & you & your husband are beautiful together!!!!
I’m sorry about your missing pictures, I would be super disappointed as well.
But oh my goodness.. the ones you posted are seriously, seriously stunning! Love the one of you with the cloak!
You’re pictures are gorgeous! It is sad that you didn’t get these details, and I completely understand. Some people need to remember that people they hire are still people, but it doesn’t seem like you are one of them at all. It sounds like some people need to remember that they are getting paid for a service and should meet certain expectations. Missing something is completely understandable even though it stinks, but not taking a picture when you are specifically asked while standing next to it is not ok.
