I’m not a photoshop expert, but this is what “Auto Levels” did for your photo.

since you don’t have PS – if you have vista, you should be able to auto-correct the color or drag the little bar to the bluer tones.

The first shot is too warm, the posted edit is too cool (blue).  You want it in the middle.

The problem is that the white balance is off, it’s an easy  fix in most photo editing programs, but I suggest you do it yourself, as no one here as rights to alter another photographers images.  That is a no no.

Also, your photographer did use flash, you can see the shadows on the wall if you look really close (around the suit, your hand,etc).  The flash was projected straight on, and not bounced to avoid such shadows.  Also, a color gel should of been used over the flash to balance the cool flash light light with the warm incandescent ambientlighting.  In my opinion, this image is unacceptable as it was taken and edited, I would ask your photographer to supply a re-edit.

You should download Picasa, it’s a free photo editing software program from Google. It has a bar that you can pull back and forth to change it from warm to cool, and it also has an ‘I’m feeling lucky’ button that usually fixes all evils :).

Reasons why never to NOT have a professional!  But your lucky that you are able to fix these easily!  USER876 is right about the coloring.  You can also get Creative Memories Memory Manager 3.0 program and make edits very easily in the program.

I’m a graphic designer with a photog minor and I work for a government contractor and deal with this all the time in the photos I correct. I would use the Variations option in Photoshop rather than the slider (personally). Then you can control the blue and cyan within the shadows/highlights/midtones respectively for a more natural look. I don’t know if you have Photoshop or not, or if your photographer does.

Feel free to private message me if you have access to the software and I will write up a step by step for where to find the Variations and how to use them. ๐Ÿ™‚

You may also want to see if you can find a photo editor or graphics designer to pay for 1-2 hours of photo editing depending on the number of photos that you have. I’ll warn you that some places charge a lot for hourly rates, but there are deals out there too–it just depends on where you are looking  (like with everything, right?!).
