These are really great!  I like the one of the two of you face on- may be a great engagment announcement if you are going to put one in the paper!

@Ms. Fox: If I’m going to be honest, technically, photographically, they’re not great. But the content is lovely, and you look quite happy! It looks like the photographer had trouble with the white snow (all the highlights are extremely blown out), which will make them hard to print. You might want to ask if the exposure is fixable at all for the ones you do want printed so you get a better result?

@Ms. Fox: Yeah the angles are troubling too. This is sort of a go to for some photographers who might not have ways to make the photo look interesting otherwise. It’s especially problematic for printing since print sizes often require some cropping (the photo doesn’t come out of the camera in an 8×10 ratio so you have to crop a bit to get there). It’s also awkward when you get a bunch printed, say to hang in a multi-photo frame, and they’re all at opposing angles.

Ideally in a black and white photo you will have a “true black” and a “true white”, meaning some part of the image will read solid black and another part solid white (but not overblown) with the rest being various grays in the middle. Your black and whites don’t have that. Ideally in those color photos you’d be able to see some detail in the whites but they’re totally blown out, which will be even more noticeable printed.

Are you paying for the additional session? Is your photographer more of a portrait photographer or is he/she used to working in natural light? Snow is tricky, but I imagine a photographer in Minnesota should have that down easily.
