I received my wedding pictures back and while I am mostly happy, I am just curious if I am being too particular about some of the pictures and the lack of editing.
My photog had a second shooter with him and I’m not sure who took which pictures throughout the day, but the color is off in some of them, my face is shiny, and in some, the lighting is just off.
I didn’t expect my photographer to make us look 10lbs thinner, but I did kind of expect that if the color was off or my face was super shiny, that he could do something about that. Especially after paying almost $3k.
What do you bees think? I’ve emailed him and asked him about why the shirts appear gray, but didn’t address anything else and haven’t heard anything back yet. Not sure if I will since he has been paid in full.
Here’s an example: The groomsmen had bright white shirts, but they appear gray in some pics:

Our photographer is over 3k and although she will edit photos to crop or adjust brightness she doesn’t do editing such as photshopping. I think that’s the norm though and that’s why the make up artist uses sealing powder to avoid the shiny face. I think the shirts look white and maybe you won’t feel so disappointed with the pics after you keep looking at them. I hope your photographer responds to you though and can help u out!

If the shirts appear grey then maybe they didn’t adjust the white color balance… there shouldn’t be any “expectations” in terms of editing. Some photographers will give you all the pictures straight out of camera, and the ones that you choose to print or put in an album, they will edit them. While other photographers will give you a gallery of edited pictures for color balance/exposure, and I know some other photographers will give you “the works” whereas each picture in your gallery is “print-ready”…
it depends for each photographer, I don’t think it should be a “pricing” expectation, but that question should have been addressed in the contract or before you signed the contract… hopefully your photographer will have a better answer for you

It looks like this photo was taken inside, and the shirts are in more of a shadow. It looks normal to me. It’s not like you’re outside under the sun.

The photo you posted should have been corrected for brightness and contrast. If they’re all like that, I would be annoyed.
