Whoa, she got those photos for less than $2k?! I thought they were marvelous, for what it’s worth. She’s just too damn picky. Disgusting.

I actually really liked some of the artistic angles and lighting he used.

Granted I only read bits and pieces of the review, so she may have some other valid arguments that I’m not aware of because I didn’t read, but in general I thought he got some really lovely shots and for only like $2,000……pretty good!!

that was like a train wreck–didn’t want to keep reading on and on and on, but dammit, just couldn’t help it! I agree, looked like excellent work for a knockout price

I’m glad to see some honest reviews for a change. All the sugar coated ones seem to be the only ones that many sites will ‘allow’ to be published,and its pretty frustrating as a potential client to read only the good.

I agree with her on most of them…his lighting was lousy and pictures were blurred,and some pretty bad cropping. Not what I would expect from a professional either, especially when she has examples of just other guests’ photos to compare.

ps: forgot to add–moral of the story–THOROUGH interview with your photographer, including portfolio of his/her work so that you know for sure his “art” isn’t your “WTF” 🙂

Holy cow, talk about a bridezilla. She got some great photos for only 2k. How is it the photographer’s fault for a ribbon coming loose on a boutineer. She should’ve just asked a family member to take the pictures. I thought those were horrible but if she liked them so much she shouldn’t have hired a professional. Also, wouldn’t you review a photographer’s work before hiring them? She has to have known the style.  I feel terrible for the photographer.

Aesthetically, I don’t like her photographer’s style. But if she hired him, I would hope that she did. Either way, though, her writing style and grammar were so atrocious that I couldn’t get through her entire review. And she sounds like a nut.

It really was a train wreck. I have done some Photography and you can tell there is bad lighting, the editing he did that “made the pictures brighter” looked horrible, the fog pictures were better. There was actually very few GOOD pictures that she posted.

For $2000 dollars I’d find a photographer who could properly light and edit images and who was more professional TBH.

Her photographer’s style looked good to me…She was annoying me with all of her whining. I couldn’t even read it all. And the photos her family took that sheLOVED, sucked. They were washed out and overexposed. If she liked that style of photo so much she should have never hired a pro. For the price she got some great shots.

What kills me is that this couple set up that blog for the sole purpose of trashing that photographer!  Someone has waaaay too much time on their hands!!

The colors are off due to the lighting. It looks like he attempted to shoot it with all natural lighting (no flashes or strobes). It appears on some he simply had his shutter speed to low and got some motion blur. Simply using a flash would have fixed this.

While she comes across as being very critical….his images were piss poor.  I am a freelance photographer and he should know his equipment well enough to produce quality images regardless of the weather and natural lighting.  That is what separates professionals from anyone that just owns a dSLR…consistently producing quality images.

Interview your photographer and ask to see 100s of images 1,000s if neccessary to make sure they are qualified.  Everyone has a different style and finding a photographer that matches yours will eliminate a lot of problems and disappointment afterwards.
