So this article popped up on my newsfeed, and I had a few thoughts about it. Basically, this cute couple hired a wedding photographer (unnamed) for their upcoming wedding, and when they got photos back, they were HORRIBLE. They had looked on the photographer’s instagram, and liked what they saw, but the actual product was awful. The photographer didn’t ask for a contract and they paid her $800.
You can see the full article on the Insider. They hired a good photographer afterwards to do some retakes in their wedding clothes. I feel so bad for couples like this who get conned into handing over hard-earned money for someone who doesn’t do a good job. The church reminded me of a church I photographed at recently. This is how the photos should have looked:
All this to say: your photos are pretty much the ONLY thing from your wedding that you’ll see daily after the day is over (other than your husband/wife, haha). I didn’t take the decision seriously, but please do! Do research, look at reviews, make sure you LOVE the photographer you hire.
If you’re curious about why wedding photography costs so much, I posted an article about it. If you have any other questions, just let me know!
