Yes I agree with the others, just delete and move on. Why do they need to see this photo.

I concur with 1000WordsPhotography, this shot does not look like a proffesional wedding photograph.


EOS 7D, EOS M, EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM, EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM, 430EX II.

^ guys, I think this is THE kiss shot at the end of the ceremony. It's a critical shot, so I can see why he'd be sweating it a little.

The kiss shot is a critical moment. If something like this were to happen to me and I missed the kiss shot, I would simply have the shot redone after the ceremony before the family shots started. Not ideal, but it's better than delivering a sub-par kiss shot, or none at all.

^ That's precisely what I would do (and have done once). You can even word it ambiguously if you even have the suspicion that you missed it--e.g. 'hey guys, I sometimes like to grab an extra kiss shot after the ceremony so I can control the background and light a little better--do you mind coming back to your spot for just a second ?'. Most couples won't think twice about it and when they get the photos back they won't even know which shot you used--the original or the re-take. Heck--they probably won't even remember there WAS a re-take.

Having the sense to realize you've made an error and then speaking up so that you can rectify the issue without even announcing there really is an issue can be challenging--but this is what professionals ought to be able to do.

Wondering what to say about this shot other than it sucks, and is embarrassing, but is it both our faults or all of mine?

After I questioned my wedding's photographer about the grossly underexposed and grainy images from my ceremony, reception, and group shots, part of her response/excuse was "That is essentially due to the choice of dim lighting throughout the venue"...............m​y wife almost slapped her.

Please don't make the same mistake and imply that a poor image is the fault of anyone other than the person behind the camera.

Looks like a hat hahaha.
Btw if you really want to keep that picture and want a dramatic solution, you can fix it with photoshop, is not too hard, you only need to get a clean picture of his face (or couple pics), clone it, clone the background (you have plenty clean area to do it) and that's it!

Like I said... only if you really want to keep that picture.

I don't think the shot is any worse than his outfit. Maybe they will like it.

Actually, I agree! It's a great point. They will probably laugh about it as well :), given his choice of wardrobe already.

I agree, very funny. If the couple have a sense of humor, they'll find it very funny. I think it should be given to them. Heck, everybody loves funny photos and video now days.


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.
