Hate Your Wedding Photos? Here Are Some Sample Scenarios and Ideas on What you Should Do Next.
Same story, different day. We have heard it before.. You couldn't WAIT to get a first look at your wedding photos, but now that you have, you wish you hadn't seen them. The lighting is off, some images are blurry, and why is there a giant pimple magnified on your face!? Ugh! Well, we have unfortunately met hundreds of couples who are unhappy with their wedding photos. Whether it be the wedding photographer's fault, or just unlucky timing, find comfort in knowing that you DO have options.
Scenario: You Hired a Professional Wedding Photographer, but are Unhappy With your Wedding Photos
First thing is first, contact your wedding photographer ASAP. He/She may be able to work some magic in photoshop or another photo editing program.
Note: Before you approach your photographer, make sure to first determine if there is anything he or she could do to remedy the situation.
If you like the family and candid shots, but are unhappy with the portraits of you and your bride/groom, ask if the photographer can offer a free portrait session of you and your groom in your wedding attire. This could be a great compromise, and may give you those portraits you always wanted.
Scenario: You Hired an Amateur Photographer or Family Member to take your Wedding Photos and Now Find Yourself Saying, "I Hate My Wedding Photos."
Solution: Search online for a good wedding photo editing service. You would be AMAZED at what professional wedding photo retouchers can do with otherwise ordinary wedding photos. Who knows, you may be sitting on a GOLD mine of ordinary wedding photos that can be transformed into professional, quality, images.
Whatever money you may save by hiring an amateur wedding photographer or family member to take your wedding photos, will not be worth it when you end up with a stack full of bad wedding photos that will never see the light of day.
Wedding Photo Summary and Conclusion:
Whether you hired a professional wedding photographer, or opted to save money by asking "Uncle Bob" to do the honor, please remember that you DO have options when things don't end up how you planned. A good photo editing service can work with you to transform your ordinary images, and bring you the "professional-like" wedding photos you have always wanted and/or dreamed about.
