If your contract included edited photos, why didn’t you ask him for them? I’m sorry you’re frustrated with your photographer, but I think a lot of this could have been avoided with some communication.

Did you ask the photographer if they had additional images? Many times they don’t include every image they take. I would definitely say something about the edited photos…I’m a graphic artist too but I wouldn’t want to edit all my own photographs.

Our photographer messed up when creating our disc and the photos weren’t very high res – I just called her and she made a new CD right away. Hopefully that is the same case for you.

@ellergy:  Maybe just call him and express your concern?  Most photographers are more than willing to work with you, but you have to tell them what you want.  They’re photographers, not mind readers.  Like UberClaire said, a lot of this could have been resolved with just a little more communication. 

That being said, I do find it a bit odd that your photographer didn’t ask for what types of shots you wanted.  My photographer gave me a photo questionnaire asking what type of feel I wanted (romantic, modern, etc), which shots were important, if I had DIY projects, and a list of “standard” photos that she usually takes.  Also, just because you’re a graphic designer, doesn’t mean you should be doing someone else’s job for them; your contract came with edited photos.  You paid for this, you deserve to have it.  Same thing goes for hi res pics.  Hopefully he’ll get back to you soon and fix these things.  Best of luck!
