How many photos did you get back from your engagement session? Or, how many photos would you expect to receive from a 1 hour session (one location, one outfit).
My fiance and I chose a photographer, with about a year of wedding experience but a decade or more of experience in portraits. We are operating on a tight budget and neither one of us are very sentimental. The photos aren't what he expected, and we're trying to decide if we should break our contract. I am okay with our photos honestly (I think they are beautiful for what we paid and how many we got back), but my fiance expected and wanted more "usable" photos (ones he actually likes and thinks we both look good in). I did have my wrap dress tied too tight because I was trying to keep my cleavage concealed, which gave me an ugly fat roll in all of the photos, and I wish she would have told me, but it was my bad, I can't really blame her for that.
My fear is, we'll get the wedding photos back, and he won't be satisfied with those either. Then I'm going to feel bad.
He wants to spend a few hundred dollars on a second engagement shoot, because we originally wanted a photobook style guest book. I think we should just nix the photobook guestbook, take what we got, and roll with it.
What are your thoughts?
