CAUTIONARY TALE FOR WEDDING COUPLES AND PHOTOGRAPHERS
I, like many of you, only know a partial amount of this story and a VERY small portion of what was delivered. With that said...
This is definitely a situation where the bride and groom got what they paid for and deserve. Nobody held a gun to their head to hire this company.
I know, I know that sounds really harsh, but it's the truth. They made a very bad decision on a day that can NOT be recreated and are trying to pawn it all off on the photographer & company. It also appears they're accepting zero accountability.
From what was shared, the photos are what I would consider to be done by someone who may have bought a "nice camera" and because of that and their inept editing skills delivered what was paid for, because that person was wayyyyyyyyyy out of their league.
In a day and age where professional photographers are clamoring for any shred of business, I'm sure there was a MUCH BETTER pool of talent they could have chosen from AND paid appropriately for.
Let's explore a parallel situation. If they bought a Tata Auto and expected the quality of a Tesla, they would be extraordinarily mistaken. And, what are they going to do? Go to social media and say Tata Auto ruined their driving experience. Pahleeze.
It's a shame their memories are what appear to be less than satisfactory, but my guess is, some of them can be cleaned up and made better. But it certainly will not be at the level they "think" they deserve.
In the end, this is a learning experience for new photographers on what NOT to do and for future brides on what NOT to do. Outside of that, this is what it is.
Also, think of this: if I buy a flute, it means I own a flute. It does not mean the LA Philharmonic will hire me tomorrow. The fact that we live in a day & age where everyone "thinks" they're a photographer because they bought a nice camera is sadly a large misconception that's making it difficult for the real professional photographers in the industry to constantly battle the negative stereotype and earn a living.
For future brides, if you pay peanuts for your wedding photography, you're going to get the quality of a monkey pushing a button. Remember, you get what you pay for.
One final thought for the photographers... If you're new to photography and think you can tackle a wedding or any other photo shoot, or even more importantly; you're offended by any of what I shared, then (this may sting some of you) you're part of the problem in our industry and should get a LOT better before you deliver garbage like this and expect to get paid. You should be embarrassed. Heck, I am for you.
