- Wedding: July 2010
After 3.5 months of waiting, we finally got our wedding photos yesterday. Mind you, we were told they would be a 2 month wait – but that’s another post.
Our photographer, who is by no means an amateur – she’s done tons and tons of weddings, has tons of accolades, and we paid $4500 for her services (it was more than we really wanted to pay, but her photos were so beautiful!) – made a huge, amateur mistake.
All but one or two of the photos of my bridesmaids, flower girl and ring bearer, and my mom and I walking down the aisle all have a bright blue teal bow in the foreground. It’s very bright and very distracting. It’s unbelievable to me that she didn’t a) change angles or b) rip the damn bow down.
Due to time constraints we ended up with way fewer photos of my bridesmaids than we’d intended, so since the photos of them walking down the aisle aren’t really usable, I barely have any photos of them now.
There are no full-length photos of me, my mom (and my dress!) walking down the aisle that aren’t partially obstructed by this bright teal bow.
Some photos to show you what I mean:
I don’t mean to be a drama queen, but I’m pretty heartbroken. To me the wedding was all about the ceremony, and the moment I walked down the aisle towards my husband was one of the happiest of my life. I feel like she could have messed up anything but the ceremony and I would’ve been fine with it. But the ceremony is what it’s all about.
I already sent her an email asking her if she has any photos of everyone walking down the aisle without the bow in the way, or if she can photoshop it out at all, or crop it. Waiting to hear back.
I just cannot friggin’ believe that she didn’t notice the bow. Like I said, it’s such an amateur mistake.
What would you do if you were in my position?
