Just wanted to throw this out there, got our proofs back from the photographer and for the most part are pretty pleased with them.
However, there is not a good formal shot of the two of us in the entire 573 odd photos. When I asked for an explanation of this, they replied that we had not requested a formal portrait of the bride and groom and therefore the photographer took a more artistic approach to the photos. (a lot of the photos are from about a mile away and you can't hardly tell it is us in them)
I would never have thought that a photographer would skip a formal photo of the bride and groom because it hadn't been requested. For the record, when we were contacted about what photos we for sure wanted to be taken we came back with, group shots of family. We didn't realize that we needed to specify that a formal shot of the bride and groom should be taken.
Ladies, please be careful when communicating with your photographer and request everything that you want, even if it seems obvious, otherwise you might be disappointed.
