No. Here's what I said.
I said I was VERY disappointed, not completely. I also said there was a handful of images that are nice (ok, so it was 7, not 5 - which would have been a true handful). But, out of 54 images that we received, that's a pretty low yield for someone with such a level of talent.
Also, I never said I was upset I had to pay the session price. I'd post a quote to prove it, but I can't because I never said it.
I did address it with the photographer to a degree I felt comfortable. 1) I only selected a very few images when they knew I wanted 10-20 and 2) I asked that if the few images that had editing done to some degree could be redone as the results didn't look natural.
We haven't put down any further money yet.
So, while I appreciate each and every person's contributions to this thread, please stick to what I've said, not what you've inferred.
Look. I don't want to play semantics with you but these threads appear over and over on these forums and to be brutally honest they have little to do with the business of photography and everything to do with people being clueless about protecting their own interests. You came looking for advice and from your first post you received some very good advice but apparently never acted on it. It amazes me that you could spend time and energy debating the minutiae of this on an Internet forum while money and an opportunity to redress the situation slowly disappears. You want further advice? Put the thread down and man up. Call or meet the photographer and discuss your concerns frankly. This is no different from dealing with anyone else selling you a product or service. Just because your supplier is a photographer you can't expect people on a photography forum to provide you with a magic solution to rid yourself of angst about confronting someone honestly. The symptoms of dealing with it will be uncomfortable and confusing and the disease is called life. Just pick up the phone. You'll likely find, as is often the case, the stress and worry over doing something is actually far worse than doing it. Good luck.
