WEDDING PICS...Finally!

My wedding pics are finally here and I must say I am really disappointed. Ithink I'll be sending the photographer a letter to let her know. Most of the ones I'm posting are ok but in almost all of our family pictures they are blurry or someones face is blown out because the light was so bright where she put us. I understand that she didn't have control over how bright it was during the ceremony but I'm really upset about almost all of the pics she did have control over. It makes me so sad because we'll never get this day back and most of the family pics and pics with our wedding party are too poor of a quality to print. I'll post more later tonight after work. Here's what I have for now. What do you think?

 This is one of the GOOD family photo's and it's terrible! How do I print something like this? The ones with DH and his family are even worse. I'm so sad about! :(My wedding pics are photo 202859-23

I think the ones you posted are great!!  I love love love the one with your bouquet out front.  The detail shots are really good too!  She just didn't do very good with the pics with shadows in them..   but overall, i like the ones you posted!

BOOO!! I'm so sorry. I would be SO mad if that would happen to me...and I'd be sure to let my photog know. But, I can tell through the pictures that you looked awesome and you had a beautiful venue! It does seem like it was super bright out!! I would have been squinting the entire time!

I think they are loooovely, but I am sorry about being dissapointed I am sure that must really hurt. Maybe she can fix up the sharpness of some pictures with post processing. Talk to the photog there might be something that can be done. I understand about the ceremony lighting although I think you can shoot from certain angles not to have an over developed picture. I would definitely let the photog know about how you feel!

Who shot these? That one of you and your girls is pretty bad, but the other are beautiful. Remember the day how you see it in your head and not how she saw it. But I would let her know too.

I agree, I think this photog did a poor job. Most of the photos have problems with the exposure, and the composition could have been a lot better. There are a few that I really like, but overall I would be very disappointed also. SO sorry this happened to you!

We paid about $2,000 which is in the middle of the spectrum in Phoenix and that was just for the disc. I had fallen in love with a photographer that was about $5,000 which was way over my budget. I wish now that I would have just done it.


Thanks for the compliments and encouragement. I think I'm definitely going to send her a note now. Especially when other people see it too.

Hi johannaa, I honestly think the pics that you posted were very nice. I especially love the one with you and your DH on the lawn with the bouquet in front. The details of your wedding look fantastic and it looked like everything was beautiful, especially you! I'm sorry your pics weren't what you were expecting. I'm wondering if you saw pics that your photog showed you, like in a portfolio or something? Maybe you can compare the quality of the work she showed you to the quality of what you receive so that she may give you a discount of some sort? What did you get for $2,000? I know it's standard in that area, but honestly, it's standard for a professional photog, so if you don't feel that yours was, then she's not worth $2k, kwim? Please share your review here as well so that other brides know what they are getting into!


EDIT: OH, also maybe you can consider a trash the dress or "day after" shoot with your FI and maybe your family to get portraits of you in your dress? You can probably get that $5,000 photog do it for you for you with an a la carte price?

I don't think they are as bad as you probably think they are, but it does really seem like she doesn't get lighting/shadows. For how much you paid, I would probably have expected better too. I would definitely talk to her and ask for a discount, especially if they are drastically worse than what her sample photos were that you saw.
