Can you post some? Maybe you had this unrealistic expectation for your photos after looking at other blogs and photographers for so long? What’s so boring about them? The angles? The subjects? Is it the editing?

What would you expect to get out of saying something about it? I mean…the photog can’t redo the day. So what would be the point, really? She fulfilled her contract, so you won’t be getting money refunded. If it’s an issue with editing, it’s possible you could get the photog to do more extensive editing…

Would love to see some examples if you’re comfortable posting them!

If the post-production is contributing to the images lacking that ‘wow factor’, I would be happy to give some advice on editing that you could ask your photographer to change to make them a little more aesthetically pleasing 🙂

I’m sorry you don’t like your photos 🙁  

Hopefully some editing will help.

Hmmm did it not say in your contract whether the photos would be edited or not? Because that’s something you should have nailed down in writing.

Also, did you discuss portrait locations with the photog prior to the wedding, or during the portrait part of the day? It seems weird that you only have the stairwell shots when most brides set aside a chunk of time with sites already in mind for those standard pictures.

I agree-post some via screen shot. Perhaps her editing is flat. Or, maybe she only did a curve balance and sharpen. Either way, we can help!

I had a friend who was disapointed with her wedding pics. They ended up having pics taken for their 1st anniversiary. They had such a great experience that I think we’re going to do the same thing.


just think…well rested…just the two of you…no pressure! FANTASTIC. Plus, why only have one day in your life where you feel like the queen?

If you’re VERY unhappy with them in a few months book a fun day with someone else for 1st (it will also cost a tonne less!)

Don’t do the print screen copy deal, it’s copyright violation.  You may have rights to the pictures that you are supplied, but you can’t just copy pictures off of someone elses website that are protected.

ARe you getting an album or prints from your photographer?  At the price range you are in, I would expect any purchased images to be retouched.  The images out of the camera may look basic, but perhaps for the prints you select and album selections they will be processed more…….just as most blog post images are (the whole CD isn’t edited that way typically).  I would ask your photographer.

Also, remember, for your album you are only looking for 50-100 that you really like out of the whole lot.
