After marinating in my own disappointment over our REALLY BAD wedding pictures long enough, I finally emailed our photographer to let him know we weren't the happiest of campers.
Now, I realize that wedding photographers aren't perhaps as skilled as the photographers we work with here at the OCC. However, I do expect that they have a slightly higher skill level than, say, Great Aunt Bertha.
Anyway, I constructed a list of things that were "wrong" with our photos and sent them to our photographer (who, by the way, was somewhat of a family friend - not a good idea). I then asked him if he might just send us the master photos so I might retouch and tweak on my own.
We got our cd yesterday. I'm definitely happier. Had I not sent the email, I probably would have still been upset about this situation 30 years down the road.
Besides, everyone loves constructive criticism, right? :)
