I think it’s perfectly fine for you to ask her to limit the amount of photos with selective coloring–it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and you are well within your rights as a paying customer to make that request.
I don’t know if it’s right or wrong, but I would mention it. Diplomatically of course 🙂
(ps – you seems to have copied it three times into your post, may want to edit it 🙂 )
As long as you are polite, I think it is appropriate to talk to her about it.
You say that you like some of the selective coloring she does, so I would just mention that while you like certain selective coloring she does (showing her specific examples of the ones you like would help) you were hoping that she could also include the full color photo in the files you recieve. It shouldn’t be a problem to include both.
You could even skirt the truth a bit and say your mom (or whoever) isn’t a fan, and you want to make sure you have some that aren’t edited that way.
I think it’s fine to ask her to limit that. You are paying her, after all. It may save her extra work as well.
I think it’s fine… as a photog I wouldn’t be offended at all, it’s not everyones cup of tea!
Yep, I’m paying for him to deliever what I want… so I need to tell him what I want (and what I don’t want…)
I think its fine. Your paying them for a service so i think your a little entitled to what you do and dont want.
I asked my photographer not to do certain effects to mine and she was perfectly fine with it!
I see no harm in telling your photographer what you want, after all your paying them to take the photos that you are 100% happy with, no good accepting an edit you know you won’t really like in a few months time.
You can tell her to not do it. Or if she does, ask for the un-edited version because you aren’t a fan of that. She should be professional about it.
The photographer doesn’t want to do extra work. She should gladly not edit any photos you ask. If she’s a seasoned photographer, she’s dealt with much, much stranger requests.
As a side note, the retouching will happen after the wedding, so there’s no need to hurry, if you don’t want to.
@friedicecream: Yeah, I know I have plenty of time. I just wanted to figure out a way to handle this since I tend to obsess about things, haha.
@auggiefrog, @friedicecream, @MrsRuby: It’s really good to know she won’t be offended… Fiance is super sweet, and he worries a lot about offending people. He’ll be glad to have your perspective. Thanks!
yeah, I am with the ” i pay you for a service” so i am allowed to request what i want, politely of course!
You are paying for their services, so she should be able to accomodate that request!
