    Decent Photos, Poor Communication

    Feels Like Today Photography (FLTP) photographed my wedding in 2013. FLTP was willing to work with us even though we lived far from St. Louis, and she also gifted us the photos from our engagement shoot for free because she was unable to take us out for dinner, something FLTP told us she usually does to get to know her clients. While FLTP’s photos turned out to be acceptable, we felt that she was overall a poor communicator and that the process of selecting photos after the wedding was far more complicated than it should have been, even allowing for the fact that we couldn’t meet with FLTP face-to-face. For example, the initial gallery we received online from FLTP included several portraits of groomsmen with their eyes closed, as well as other shots with which we were less than satisfied. We had to make a special request to see the “outtake” photos—something that FLTP told us she didn’t usually allow clients to see—so that we could select alternate shots of the groomsmen and other photos to be retouched and added to our final gallery (for an additional fee, of course). The outtake galleries were not well organized, and the process was tedious and time consuming. In the next gallery of photos that FLTP prepared, we discovered that she had not retouched and included all of the outtake photos that we had requested and paid for. So, we had to double check the list of what we had requested against what she had actually delivered and then send her a reminder. In the end, we had to work through a total of three digital galleries to make our final photo selections. Also, the digital proof of the print album that FLTP showed us online contained more pages than would have been included in our package; however, she didn’t tell us that until after we had made some adjustments to the proof and were ready to finalize our order. Because we didn’t want to pay an additional amount to keep the extra pages, we had to go back and take time on our own to decide which pages and pictures to remove from the album and how to rearrange the remaining photos. We feel that FLTP’s photography was decent, but her communication process before—and especially after—the wedding was highly disorganized and quite problematic. (On a related note, the videographer that we hired on FLTP’s endorsement turned out to be terrible and actually failed to record the majority of our ceremony. The poor work of the videographer was *not* FLTP's fault, but FLTP did put us in contact with the videographer initially, helped us hire him, and then basically told us we were out of luck when the video turned out to be horrible. FLTP also revealed at this point that she knew shortly before the wedding that the videographer was leaving the wedding video business, but for some reason she had never told us). In brief, I would not recommend working with FLTP.
