sorry about your photog peterpanpixiedust!!
Not a problem. I actually didn't specify anything and I think he pretty much caught everything plus more. The only pictures that I don't have and wish I did, are pictures with the ring bearer and flower girl...I have a few of them walking down the isle, but none with the whole bridal party or just with the bride & groom. This wasn't the photog's fault though....The kids were both 2 years old and being a little difficult that day..LOL I also wish I had one normal bride & groom pic of us. I had a hard time finding a pic I liked for the Engraved frames we gave our parents for Christmas.
I am positive you could give him a list of "must haves" just to cover your basis

It had some character. was yours someone like this ( I know you said yours are all 4x6) What did the prints look like? are they glossy, mat, high luster, thicker than average or really think like walgreens does? I just wish my entourage (WC Photog's, etc) would email me back so I could get real answers....deep breath!
I would be happy to take a pic, but just to warn you, it's pretty much just 3 pictures to a page in a row..LOL
I will take the pic tonight hopefully so you can see. But to be honest, I am making my own book. For christmas, we made our parents albums from snap fish and it looked like a hard back magazine. We got to do the layout and it was awesome....I tried to get a link to it, but i guess I didn't save it to snapfish. I have yet to make the one for us, but I plan too.
I have the book from Juan on my coffee table for now, but I hope to print ALL of the mexico pics out from the whole trip and add them to that book. Especially after I make my hardback photobook. That's why he gives you the option to buy all of the shots he took that day, so you can do what you wish with them
