Our wedding has been and gone and we had a fantastic day and we were so excited to see how our day was captured. We eventually got our photos and we are extremely upset.
The quality isn't good. Around 80% if not more are poor quality candid pictures with the focus/subject of the pictures poorly defined due to lack of focus or distractions in the background.
We requested certain posed shots which weren't taken and those that were are of poor quality, with bad staging and attention to detail etc. I don't even have a picture staged or otherwise with both my parents or of my bridesmaids and I. We have a total of two staged photographs of our entire bridal party (again not everyone is looking at the camera).
We emailed our concerns and disappointment to our photographer who rudely replied without taking any responsibility at all. Saying taste is 'subjective'. We paid him in good faith and on the basis of him supposedly being a 'professional' and with that should come attention to detail and assertiveness etc
I really could write all day here about the poor quality but suffice it to say we have got some better pictures off mobile phones by amateurs.
Has anyone been in this situation or any advice of what to do? Thinking of getting other photographers professional opinions to ensure its not just us being picky.
We are so upset....its a day we can never get back.
