A lot of the pictures don’t seem to have a very sharp focus.  There also is not a lot of different poses.  And some of them seem a little awkward. 

But $200 is a very cheap price.  I do find generally with something like photography you somewhat get what you pay for.

It will really come down to what your eye tells you.  If you think these are the type of photos that you want your wedding pictures to be, then go for it.  But if you think you will be disappointed, then maybe keep looking.

Also keep in mind the potential for friendship upset if you don’t end up liking them, since she is a good friend.

I think they’re lovely and for what she is going to charge you really worth the money – though I would say if you’re not 110% sure then wait before booking, your wedding photos are something you’re going to look back on an cherish forever.

I like the pics.  How many would you get for $200?

I’d definitely have a list of poses you like – it’s hard to think of things at the time.

@GroovyHippieChick:  I agree about the list of poses. I think that would be a huge help. 

I think they are good, and they’re great for $200.

Love the pictures but as others said, make sure you have a complete list of pictures you want to get so nothing is forgotten.

I think they’re adorable! You two are such a cute couple. I think the overall composition of the photos is really good, too. As PPs have suggested, get some ideas of photos you like and send them to your friend. And I know how you feel about being awkward people πŸ™‚ My Fiance and I are SUPER awkward. We’re having our e-pics taken on Saturday and I’m really nervous it’s going to show through the pics. I think we may need a cocktail or two beforehand πŸ™‚ I don’t think you guys look awkward, though! I think the photos are lovely.

The photos are really nice, especially for $200. My issue is that she’s not giving you any direction, when she really should be. Is she a pro?

The pictures are pretty but I would be worried if she has ever shot a wedding before. You don’t really have a lot of staging for the ceremony. If she doesn’t get the shot then she doesn’t get it theres not really a redo. It all comes down to are you comfortable with her doing your wedding? Your epics are really pretty and I love the color composition.
