Wow these are absolutely STUNNING!!!

I agree that he probably deleted ones he didn’t like, but surely not if it was the only shot of a certain thing. That really sucks and I’m so sorry. But you got the photos that really matter, and they are gorgeous enough to make up for it if you ask me 🙂

@PassionatePhotoLady:  My photographers actually have it in their contract that they be provided a meal or be allowed to take a 30 minute break. I just assumed that was typical!

@DeathByDesign:  Your photos so far are absolutely STUNNING!! And you are ever so beautiful!  It looks like your day was fabulous.  I’m sorry about how awful you felt/feel about those missing pictures.  I bet your photographer actually does have those photos but just felt like they weren’t good enough to give to you.  Just let him know that they really are very important to you to have 🙂 I hope everything works out!! <3

@kwynn:  Nicely said 🙂 I’m a wedding videographer, and I always have a mental list of all the shots I need to get but usually I’m working with a team of 2-3 (maybe even to 4!) and between us all we get the shots we need.  I can’t imagine trying to get all the shots and details if it were just me working alone! It must be quite difficult!!

And I just wanted to say, let’s please stop attacking

@PassionatePhotoLady:  I can understand the frustration on both sides.

I would be FURIOUS!  I know we got three folders on our DVD.  One was High Res Final Edits then Low Res Final Edits and then Unedited ones.  We got to choose which unedited ones to have edited and got another DVD with those ones on it.

It sounds like something is going on.  I know in our High Res folder, there were 600 pictures and EACH picture was something like 13MB!

@DeathByDesign:  i just wanted to commiserate with you and give you some hope on how i think you will likely feel months from now. Reading your OP felt like I was reading a thread I wrote myself when I got my pictures back. I was IN LOVE with my pictures, but i had also focused on so many little details of my wedding and was immensely disappointed when some of them were not captured.  Everyone either told me i was over reacting or being nice and trying to come up with solutions (ask the photog is she had more photos i didn’t get, get guest photos etc). Details i was missing was things like my ring pillow, an overview of my tables, shoes on feet pic, some other things like that. and my ring pics i was not a fan of since my heart diamond was upside down. Anyway, one thing that someone told me was that eventually they just stopped caring so much when it happened to them……and now i can honestly say they were right.  And i actually remember feeling alot better about what i did have when i did my recaps an designed my albums because i found i had difficulty cutting down the photos to make recaps or albums because i had so many good ones to choose from! 

and i totally do get about the posterboard being important, i felt like that about my ring pillow, my table decor and my ring photos. i finally did accept that i had still had these things with me here, and its not like having a picture was really sooo important, what was imporant months later was our ceremony pics and our B&G pics – the ones i put in frames, and the ones my family and friends commented on! (i find only other brides ever actually cared or commented about the detail photos) and the ones that tell a story.  I am just saying to tell you i think that this frustration you feel will really truly pass in time and you will be totally happy with everything….without the “but”!  

oh, last thing, one thing that was different for me was that i did not blame my photog at all, i blamed myself because i never gave her a must have list! i wished i had in hind sight, but never got around to making one and didn’t think it mattered. So i can imagine you are more frustrated having probably thought that the list would avoid “missing” pictures

please ask your photographer about the missing photo. Sometimes we get so frustrated & stressed when there is actually no reason to. I bet that he took a photo, but something unexpected happened. It could be as simple as it accidentally wasnt copied over… or maybe it was just not a good photo (out of focus or someone walked by, etc). So before you & your DH get more upset, just ask your photog about it & go from there. I really hope its there since it sounds very important to you.

@DeathByDesign:  I know how you feel. There we some really important shots that I asked for but didn’t get. Especially the details and it makes me mad/sad still. I did mention to my photographer that I was upset and only one photo of my mother and me from the day and all of a sudden she sent three more so it can’t hurt to ask. But she mostly did not capture the rest of what I wanted.

I completely agree with PurpleUnicorn. I asked my photog specifically to make sure to get some detail shots and yeah, there were some missing. The one I remember specifically is our table numbers. We made custom table numbers and I was in love with them and wanted a pictures of them. I also don’t have any really good pictures of our centerpeices, which bothered me a lot. Eventually… it just stopped mattering. I love, love, love my photographers and my wedding shots are amazing and I am totally happy with them. In the long run, they did miss some things but they captured everything that was important; Me, DH, our families and how much fun and love was stuffed into that one day.
