I like the pictures, but that’s just me, maybe just casually mention a photographer whose work you admire, just say you came across an article about him/her or something 🙂 Ask her what her favourite things about her photographer are.

I would just start talking weddings with her, and maybe casually start talking about your photographer. If she says something again about not liking her photos, just say “have you thought about looking into another photographer? It’s a huge investment and you shouldn’t be feeling this way about it.”

I looked at the photos, they aren’t that great. They’re super traditional and not very creative. I looked at several other albums from that photographer and they’re all the same – boring, stiff, posed. It looks amature to me.

@FoolsintheRain:  i think as a couple they look fine, she looks great. but the photos dont scream ‘professional quality’ to me

Most of them dont seem very edited to me if you know what i mean

@FoolsintheRain:  Here’s the thing, even if she likes more posed shots, there are better ways to pose people. Posing doesn’t have to mean 80’s prom – holding hands with an arm around each other. Part of being a great photographer is being able to pose people in a natural and flattering way.

Most all of my sessions are a mixture of moments as well as some posted shots, because at the end of the day no matter how much a cleint says they like all candid stuff they also want at least some pictures of themselves smiling nicely at the camera.

The time to bring it up is when SHE brings it up. If she is complaining about her pictures, suggest she find someone else. There is no harm in helping a friend solve a problem she is having.

@FoolsintheRain:  Who is your photographer? Just so we can get an idea of comparison.

@FoolsintheRain:  Ive just had a look at yours for a comparison, and seriously….there is no comparison. yours look professional and edited and finished, hers look a bit like photos i cook take myself. *maybe* its because hers arent finished/edited?


I would strongly suggest that you have a word. i dont think her photographer is going to do a different job for the wedding. unless shes paid a non refundable deposit and then shes a bit stuck.

@FoolsintheRain:  Super cute!! Who is your photog? I agree there is visibly a huge difference.
