My husband and I recently got married 3 months ago. Our photographer was apart of our package at our venue, and I was very excited about that because they are the best in town. And they have AMAZING work. I couldn't wait to see our pictures when I got an email from them 3 weeks later. Looking through them I was very pleased with the candids and the Bride+ BM pictures and the Groom+ GM pictures, and the pictures of our family. But looking at my bridals (which are very few) I was disappointed that the photographers didnt tell me to relax my face in a few or where to put my flowers, because they look really bad. I have about 2 I like out of the very few they took of me. Then, when my husband and I took pictures just us, they have some of us where they posed us far from eachother holding hands, and they have us doing this awkward pose with our rings and our hands that looks like it came out of the ealry 90's, and on our faces you can tell we were thinking what the heck?
Bottom line, i'm disappointed in those. My husband and I have been together 8 years, I waited a very long time for this wedding and I expected a top of the line photographer to give me pictures like the ones I seen on their website and in studio. So my friend who is an up and coming photographer said since I still havn't preserved my dress, she would re take some of our pictures for us, we just have to re-create the looks from the wedding. Has anyone done this or know anyone who has gotten pictures done after the day? I would just like some opinions.
