I really have no comment on this particular case since we don't know all the details and haven't see all the photos that were delivered, etc.

But here's a question for the wedding togs... have you ever shot a wedding and the bride, groom, wedding party, guests were not co-operative and/or wouldn't make time for the shots you normally set up?  What was the outcome?

Ok, I agree that the posted photos are bad but we have no idea what the rest of the photos look like from the event.  At a minimum this photographer is guilty of not properly culling and post processing his/her photos. For instance, the pic with the umbrella has a very good expression on the brides face and the photo would actually be a good one if it were cropped to lose the trash can. 

I know photographers willing to shoot a wedding and only post process a small number of photos while handing over the raw or large jpg for ALL of the photos during the day.  If that is what happened here then it's pretty ridiculous on the part of the wedding couple because they don't understand how things work.  If the photographer handed over all of the day's photos then it's pretty normal if 50% are out of focus, eyes shut, bad expressions, someone stepping into the frame, or need something cropped out.  It looks to me like the pictures haven't been processed at all so it leads me to believe this is the case.

Looking at the couple, they should be embarrassed.  Maybe put down the butter, cake, chips, beer, sweets, and like would have helped too.

The fact thay got that horse in a white tarp and made it look like a dress is an accomplishment though

By the way many here have rightly pointed out that we do not know what happened with the other photos.... surely the photographer took at least 500 photos.

What I wanna know is why did the photographer send them all his shots? Did he not even look at them at all? That in it self is proof he's no pro. Idiot. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

Perhaps the contract said ALL shots.... It could be that the photographer took 2000 shots, a dozen or so are bad... it could be a 99 percent hit rate... it could be .1 percent hit rate, we don't know.

The article refers to the photographer in question as 'she' not 'he' ('It's just awful, she's robbed us of everything')

According to the article 'Mr Crack, 30, has said the collection does not feature any good photographs'.

Or they couple may have gotten into some argument or debate with the photographer and eventually she gave up, sighed deeply, shouted "oh bollocks", and just handed over ALL the shots and told the lovely couple to piss off.  Then, being the miserable type, the couple selected the worst shots and filed a lawsuit seeking the costs of a new reception just to get a free party with more cake.  People are like that.

Like others, I am scratching my head as to how they ever even saw these pictures. It only reinforces my resolve to never let my subjects see the original shots. I mostly shoot for family and friends, but even in those cases, I'm not letting them see everything I shoot.

To me, that's like going to buy a car, getting a truckload of parts delivered and being told to assemble it myself. It's only half the product. I know some photographers give their clients everything and I know that when they are waiving money in front of you, it's hard not to comply. But, I don't want my bad shots being posted for the whole world to see.
