So i booked an amazing photographer who i used to work with at a photo studio years ago. We just had out engagement photos done and they were terrible. I understand that we are in our forties and not your typical couple but we have had family photos taken that were ten times better by other photographers. He took many shots from below, making us look even heavier than we are. He kept asking us to kiss so there are far to many with us not looking at the camera. The setting behind us was busy and the posing was too young and awkward for our ages.
The problem is....he is booked for our wedding. Do we sit him down and discuss what we want differently for the wedding? Do we cancel and hire someone else?
I feel frustrated because i know him personally and i know what work he is capable of. Now i am wondering if knowing him as a friend is the problem. How would you handle this? I really do love his work but i want my wedding photos to be beautiful not a huge disappointment. As of right now, we are thinking of booking an appointment with him and letting him know what we would like done differently next time. Not sure how that will go over. ugh!
