    I think the photography standard needs to be raised up. They need to be certified to know how to shoot a wedding.

    it is better to have a picture (to be fair, to pick a few typical examples) to show how they really are. it may not be that bad unless shown.

    Look at it this way, every "professional" profession are the same. Be it auditor, doctor or lawyers. All are called professional. But, all cannot guarantee results. What makes u think a photography PROFESSIONAL can?
    I am not too sure whether photographers, no matter how proficient they are, can be considered as professionals since the word "professions", by definition, usually refers to jobs that required advanced education, training with or without certification.

    I will IMAGINE, if it's my own wedding, I will not
    1) care what software he uses to get the job done.

    I will care if his styles and the photos is what i want.

    If the end product turns out so different from what his portfolio (what he show me before my wedding), i will have to get him to compensate since he did not deliver. For actual day, no take 2...

    to be professional in work
    to be a professional so & so, and
    to be a professional

    all means different things.

    that is why a professional photographer is not a professional, strictly speaking, when we are talking about what we usually refer to a professional. but we use it loosely here, for ease of reference in a photographic community.

    Ask him to redo it lor. If its only colour balance issue, can always ask the photographer to re-edit the photos or if he cant do it, ask him to pay for someone to do it.

    I would still want the photos cos its a once in lifetime (for most ppl) event.

    Even if you are holding the latest camera/s with the latest lens, you are still just an expensive equipment owner if you do not hv photography skills.

    some people may request for additional charges for poor work to be redone. i hope that would not be the case.

    Let me share my own story (Although I'm still single and unwanted)

    My Constituency organized a New Citizen Ceremony where new citizens get their letter of citizenship and IC from the Minister in charge of the GRC.

    It's the same like marriage where it's almost once in the lifetime.

    The committee decided to engage one guy coz he's one of the committee member's brother and he's a "professional"

    When he came... I was shocked... That guy doesn't seem professional enough in attitude and equipment.

    And worst part, he started to take photos without using flash when he saw me doing tat. I was using a F2.8 lens and he's using a kit lens.

    True enough, this so-called professional give us photos that are total crap. Most of them are blurred and shakey.

    The new citizens complained like mad.

    Therefore, the morale of the story is to always see the photographer's portfolio and make sure he understands your needs. If he claims to know what he's doing and that he's professional, no need to tell him anything, he will know... then forget it. Get a guy that listens coz it's your money and your head on the chopping board =)
