Bridal Photo Letdown

I just received a preview of my bridal portraits from my photographer. While the poses, lighting, and editing are great, I am pretty disappointed with the way I look. I don't like my hairstyle at all. On top of that, the girl that did my spray tan did a super quick job and I ended up getting no color. So, I am super washed out and basically the same color as my off-white dress. The photographer did a great job on her end, but I'm just not happy with my appearance. I feel like bridal portraits should be something a bride is excited about and ecstatic to show everyone. But I'm just super bummed with the way mine turned out. Is it acceptable to ask my photographer if I can take a few more? Not even an entire session. I just want to have a few that I'm happy with.

  • Yeah by the sounds of it none of the issues are the photographers fault, so you can definitely ask for a mini session to take more if you want. But expect to pay full price for that.

    this is bridal photos and not the day of....right?  What are you using these bridal photos for?  I agree with PP's I'm sure she'll re-do them, but at a cost.

  • You can ask, but you should have a separate contract for a separate session. This would be an additional service - not an add on or extension of your original contract. She will (or should) charge you whatever her normal fee would be for a portrait session.
