It sounds like you had a different vision than what your photographer had. Sometimes going with the bargain will get you just that – bargain pictures. Photography was one of my biggest things when choosing vendors and I grilled different photographers on their styles and skills before deciding on which one to go with. I’m sorry your pics didn’t come out the way you would have liked, but at least the ones you pushed for came out good!

@mspartridge:  Perhaps your guests got some good candids? My FI’s brother got married recently and had an issue with his photographer – the one he hired got sick and they sent their assistant, instead. He got so many shots of the same picture rather than a large variety. He was happy overall, but his guests got a lot of great pics that his photographer missed out on!

@mspartridge:  At first I was going to ask you why you hired this person, and then you answered that question with the word bargain.  If you had it to do over again would you have spent more on a photographer whose work fit your vision better?

@mspartridge:  It’s impossible next to impossible to be a full timer and shoot weddings sub $2000 and pay your bills.  I would never laugh at anyone’s budget because I know how expensive weddings are, but it’s not a realistic one for someone super talented.

I guess I don’t understand being disappointed but not wishing you had the opportunity to make a change?  But I’m glad you did get some photos that you liked.  It’s more than I can say of our wedding!

@mspartridge:  Right, I get that – you can’t go back and change the past.  But it seems like you were bothered enough about it to write the post, which means you have a message or a story to tell.

Part of why wedding photography became such a passion in my life is we didn’t make it a priority in our own wedding.  We let a friend who was an amateur photographer take the photos, and we literally do not look at any of them, EVER.  We completely regret the decision, and IF we could do it over again we would.  But since we can’t all we can do is give our clients what we didn’t have and try to help people make more informed decisions about it than we did.
