I need some advice. I just got my wedding photos back from the photographers and I noticed that they didn't get any pictures of me&hubs with my grandparents, my brother, or my nephew who was also the ring bearer. I'm so upset because I obviously can't turn back time to get those pictures and it was a destination wedding so any pictures I try to re-create won't be the same. Their excuse was "they didn't know that those pictures were important to me." Really? Obviously it would be important to me to have a picture with my grandparents on my wedding day, I shouldn't even have to tell them that! Before the wedding, I did send a list of all the group photos I wanted and I even talked to the photographer about that list, so that excuse is just unacceptable to me! What makes it worse though, is that they totally had time to get all of the pictures I wanted, but instead of doing that, they took like 50 family portraits of my cousin's family...not sure why they were so focused on that one family when it's my wedding they should have been photographing.
I did get pictures from some of my guests, but still none of us with my grandparents/brother/nephew. It's not like they were hiding or anything either, they were around us a lot that day so i'm surprised there are no pictures of us with them. Every time I look at my wedding pictures, I think about the ones i'm missing and I can't help but get sad about it. Am i ever going to feel better about this and do you have any ideas about how I can make this better? I appreciate any ideas!!!
