Oh no! Are you getting digital copies of your photos as well?

Don’t cry honey, it’s going to be ok.  First, I would review my contract with that photographer and see just what’s what when it comes to design modification, charges and just what was agreed upon in the first place.  If your tied up in that department, tell the photographer to stowe the proofs and send you digitals of your wedding photos and send them to someone that knows what they hell they’re doing….

It seems a little bit ridiculous to me for a wedding photographer to offer a wedding album, send you some crap like what you are describing that they just threw together and then say well, if you dont like my crap, you’ll have to pay. No thanks, it costs less to do it yourself! I’d fight her on that.

I would tell him to forget the album! I am sure you can find someone else to make one for you

Just curious about 2 things:

 

1:  what was the total contract price?

2:  Did you see album samples from this photographer prior to booking to get an idea of what to expect.

This is the reason we are not going to do an album from the photographer. You spend tons of money on somethign that can be done with a bit time invested to it.

I would just try to get your money back for it and do it yourself

@Lulume:  A well designed professional album has unmatched quality to what is available to consumers.

@USER876:  I agree with you, however the album has to be well designed. Sometimes it feels that it’s hard getting that.

I personally don’t feel we ned one for the extra $. With Facebook and E-mail and other ways of sharing photos, albums get looked at less then they did back in the day. It’s a nice thing to have and if it comes as part of the package and is done well then it’s worth it. But My photograper would charge me extra and I just said no as I am very crafty.

@Treejewel19:  Sorry, I overlooked that part… I agree. I would be a good idea to ask for money back and do your own 🙂 Sorry you are having to deal with this!

I can’t see it, it doesn’t sound good… you can PM me the link if you’d like. Without seeing it, everyone has different tastes so perhaps someone else might like it? Were red, maroon & green your wedding colors? You could ask your photographer to change all the background pages to black. Simple, elegant, & hopefully an easy fix.

Why would he/she design you a wedding album without your input? That seems a little odd.
