Do photogs give refunds?

Do photographers give refunds if you don't like your pictures? Cause I don't like my pictures and I would really like some of my savings money back.

You'd have to review your contract to see what they say. It also depends on the situation. Was it your e-pics or b-pics that you disliked?

b-pics. I read the contract. Not sure if I can get any sort of refund. I'm going to wait and see the rest of the pictures to decide what I'm going to do. It doesn't hurt to ask I guess.

Don't ask until you get your pictures back!!!! Also - I'm pretty sure you won't be able to get all your money back but why don't you try to get part of it back or ask if you can do a re-shoot.

I'm not sure about the re-shoot. That would be pretty akward. Not to mention the makeup/hair was done by her sister and I definitely don't want her to do that again.

If that's the case then I'd let them know what you didn't like, what you didn't feel met your standards (or even met the standard) and ask them for compensation. I don't think that they will offer a full refund though - sorry!

Aww..I'm sorry you don't like your pics!  What a shame.


I think you have to decide specifically what you don't like about them and then decide what to do about it.  Do you not like the photog's style?  If so, he/she may respond by saying that you had to of liked his/her style when you booked with them or you would have gone elsewhere. 


If it's something like editing issues, you can approach them and ask for more/less editing.


If you are looking for shots that they didn't get, maybe they would re-shoot them for you?  Like if you had inspiration pics you asked for and they didn't get the, kwim?


These are just some suggestions as I'm not sure what you don't like about them.

Read your contract - if it's not in there you may be out of luck. This was one of the hundred questions that I asked my photog and made sure to get it in writing.

Maybe I can get a reshoot. I really didn't like my hair and makeup. I didn't feel beautiful in the pictures. That's my problem with them.

I thought your b-pics were hot!  We are our own worst critic - can I say that when we first got our pro-pics I was SO disappointed. . .hated my hair, and *shocker* not every photo was perfect (it doesn't matter how much you spend on photography, not every shot will be blog worthy. . .it's that simple).  I looked at them from a different perspective - I quit being so hard on my own appearance. . .and WOW, I love my pro-pics without a doubt now and feel SO blessed to have such a gorgeous story of our day.


That said, I seriously doubt you could get a refund because you didn't like the way you looked (which, again, you looked phenomenal!) . . . from what I remember of your photos the lighting, composition, etc. were perfect.  The only time I've ever heard of a photog refund is in long drawn - out court battles where you can prove that the photographer mislead you regarding their skills and shot really poor photos. 


I'm sorry :(  


Ok, yeah, I checked your bio and your b-pics are HOT HOT HOT. . .seriously. . .


If you really hate your hair and makeup, talk to your photographer and be honest. . .they aren't what you were expecting, would she be able to work with you?  


Best wishes - keep us updated - but know that when we say the photos are awesome we aren't kidding. . . . :) :) :)

Thanks MB! My FMIL and best friend didn't think they did me justice and thought they were unflattering. And I agree with them for a handful of the photos. I know that PW girls all like them, but you would have to see me on a daily basis I guess. I sent her and e-mail and she said I will get the dics in 3 weeks. So maybe end of December. Time to wait.

I agree with MB...they're hot!  Just hang tight and wait for the rest of the pics.  Your photog did a good job and your man is gonna love 'em!

Laura is right ^^^


Your man is going to think they are AMAZING - especially because you stepped out of your element with the eye makeup and everything.  And the guitar one? ? ?  HOTHOTHOT.
