40% of Brides Have Regrets with Wedding Photos

I remember when my wife and I got married, she happy and excited when we had finally received our wedding photos. As we went through our collection I remember her having a huge smile, but suddenly the look on her face changed to disappointment as we got to the end of the photos of her getting ready.

After we got through the collection, I asked why she had that look on her face, and she said, “You know… I honestly didn’t know at the time… but really thinking about it, I just didn’t like the way our photographer posed me for the portraits. I just don’t think I look very flattering or beautiful in those poses at all.”

What a disappointment.

To have that one day in your life in the most beautiful dress, but to not be happy with the way you are posed in the portraits. From that day on, I made sure it was my mission to be a master in the art of posing brides and couples.

Sadly, a lot of photographers don’t understand that it’s not just about the the beautiful compositions, backdrops, and even moments. Though those are all important, it is an absolute necessity to be a master in the art of posing to ensure the bride and the groom look absolutely dazzling on the best day of their life.

So I decided to do some research. And I came across this study that mentioned that close to 40% of brides had regrets when it came to their wedding photos.

“Wow!” I thought to myself. I couldn’t believe that percentage was so high! I started digging deeper to really see the reasons why these brides we’re unhappy, and this is what I found…

“Our photographer got drunk, and you can see the photos in the gallery getting blurrier and blurrier as you scroll through.”

“He just really didn’t seem to know what he was doing! He didn’t guide us during the portrait session and we we’re just standing there awkwardly!”

“She only captured moments of my husband and I, but not of our close friends and loved ones. That was really disappointing.”

And that was just the tip of the iceberg…

I take pride in my work, and after seeing almost half of brides out their being extremely unhappy with the results they were getting from other so called professional photographers, I couldn’t help but be extremely proud of what every single one of my couples have said about me.

Like Sarah and John who said, “He was able to make us laugh and cry again as we were going through our gallery. We were able to see moments of the day from a whole new perspective. Bryan Michael Photography is worth every dime, Bryan puts his heart into each photo as if it was his own wedding.”

It was such an amazing honor to give them and many others this experience.
