Also he didn't even bother to tell people the "wet floor" sign we behind them or next to them so that's in the pictures. I mean come on your professional you should know better.
You can see the yellow marker in both. I just think that's ridiculous. Higher out! Also, I won't say who as I don't want to get them in trouble but during my site visit someone who works at the resort told me not to use the hotel photographers as they went very good. That's why I never even bothered with them and just took the free ones for the welcome cocktail hour.
Your pictures are nice - because your guests are beautiful, but I can see what you mean. They're nice photos but in terms of paying a professional to take them, I think most people would be disappointed. That yellow sign would bother me too. They don't look any different than what someone else's photos from a party would look like if they had a Canon D50 or something like it. Perhaps they don't put in the effort for the people who use the 24 photos included in the package? But, that doesn't seem like good business sense, because then no one will spread the word that they're good photographers and recommend people use them for their wedding. Hmmm, well good thing you didn't have to pay for them I guess.
On a positive note - the resort looks beautiful and so do your guests!
