Cant shift photo regrets
I've posted about this before, but I still can't seem to shift the negative feelings about our wedding photos.
The photographer didnt do a bad job overall which makes it hard to reconcile my feelings. Most of the issues are subjective so we haven't said anything as 1) there's nothing that can be done anyway and 2) he's likely to offer a bunch of mitigating reasons which we've already second guessed (e.g. the venue was dark so thats why I used a high ISO and your photos have noise). It seems a bit pointless to contact him.
However I just cant seem to get over it. We have ended up asking our videographer for some stills to boost the number of images of OHs family and we are looking at doing a cherish the dress couples shoot but honestly I begrudge having to pay out yet more money and it wont be the same as on the day.
It hasn't helped that we have ordered an album from a separate company and they haven't processed the images properly (many are blurred despite using their proper tool) so we've had to complain.
I spent ages laying out the book too and it looks like we'll have to find another company and do it all again.
SIL also just got married abroad and her photographer was lovely. She'll have some gorgeous photos of her in her dress and he took plenty of couples shots (both things we dont have). Chuck in some serious jet lag and a rubbish cold and Im feeling low over our own pictures again.
Sorry to rant and moan when there are so many worse things going on, but not sure how to get this of my head.
