I just got my wedding photos back and I’m a little disappointed in the lack of family shots and detail shots. We spent a ton of money on the little extras for the reception and not really much was documented. The one photo I have of my guest table has beer and wine sitting in front of it. Am I overreacting to be upset about this? There’s no picture of the bar or food table or the decor on the bistro tables. She says we ran over on time before the ceremony and she couldn’t take them but my point is she could’ve taken them at the actual reception worst case. The whole experience was rushed with her. She was not organized and saying which family members needed to be here for photos, barely captured any of my daughter, and some of the photos even had a purple lining around our heads etc. I’m just a little frustrated.
I am sorry. Playing devil's advocate did you communicate you wanted pics of those things? Each bride is different and some may want photos mostly of them. I wouldn't think to ask for a picture of bar food but for me that's not important but if it is to you then you have a right to be frustrated. If you did communicate this to the photographer then you have a right to be frustrated. I am sorry you did not get all the pics you wanted. I hope your day overall was amazing.
I’m really sorry to hear about this. I can totally understand why you’re frustrated and disappointed. When you’re not happy with your photographs, it’s really hard as it’s not something you can go back and re-do exactly.
Did you have an agreed shot list with the photographer where you listed all these photos you wanted? Is this something you discussed before the wedding day? If so, and it hasn’t been fulfilled, I would definitely recommend you speak with her about this.
Perhaps your guests may have got some of these detail shots that they could send you. Of course they won’t be professional, however, they would be better than nothing.
My photographer captured these things while I was finishing getting ready, he came in and shot us girl getting ready then went down to the reception and ceremony sites and photographed them as well. Was she late in arriving?
