My main question is, why haven't you photoshopped her undereye circles in the portraits? She is a lovely girl but the lighting (which looks overcast to me) makes anybody's under eye area look worse and it looks pretty dark on her. Every bride wants to look their best at their wedding, and this is not showing her the best, you know?


I am super cool n' stuff.

In my view, Dutch Angle shots should be "really" tilted. These just come off looking like sloppy camera work. And, the stylized vintage processing does not help them.

I disagree. I don't personally like really tilted shots. As for the processing, the clients loved it and it's what they wanted. It's not about what I personally like, it's a job. Weddings aren't really my thing anyhow, I only do a couple a year.

It's not an excuse. It's a statement of fact. I don't make excuses. You don't like them, you've made that quite clear. I appreciate your opinion, but it's just that, an opinion.

Guess it's a good thing I'm not a wedding photographer

Just my little, lowly opinion...but I think the couple look great...kinda funky, out there. Just looking at the couple and the photos...I'll bet these are RIGHT up their alley. It probably wouldn't be a TRUE memory for them to have stodgy, "proper" wedding photos.

Again, just my lowly (probably unpopular) opinion. ;)

You hit the nail on the head. They saw some other stuff I'd done and they really liked the photos. People can call it a cop out, but in the end, if they're happy, that's all that really matters to me. The wedding was funky and fun and I tried to capture that and I think I did.

That's the thing, there are clients that find a photographer that delivers what their friends and the web have decided is the "hot new style". No one ever complained about a photographer delivering what the customer asks for.

I've done it myself. :-) In fact its what I do all the time. The good news is that most of the time the client is asking me to deliver the images I think are best, processed as I think they should be.

I honestly don't know what I'd say if a client asked me to process their job so it looked faded and old that I thought didn't look like something I'd want my name on. I'd probably spend some time showing some of the techniques I use to stylize images so we could agree on a look. So far when I've done similar things with clients for architecture, portraiture etc. they have agreed with my approach.

The dutch angle thing is a matter of taste. My view is that if it looks like it could be a mistake or careless camera technique it needs more tilt.

Now they're embarrassing? You bring clients around to your way of doing things and that's fine, but I like to think I can do things any way that someone wants them. I don't really understand the hate for the processing. It's not your cup of tea but that and a nickel doesn't do a thing for me. Too many wedding photos out there all look the same; the ring shot, the dress shot, the shoes, etc., it's boring to me and it's not what they wanted. I gave them what they wanted and I'm happy with it and not ashamed IN ANY WAY to have my name on them. I documented their wedding and I think the mood and atmosphere come through and that was their desire.
