If I hired you to shoot my wedding and you presented me with these photos I would sue you for parading as a wedding photographer, and gross negligence on your part.

I never saw a worse series of photos from a wedding.

If Fuji is attacted to these photos I would have to revise my opinion of Fuji as a camera company.

Sorry, not to offend you, but someone has to let you know.

Blurred photos do not make a Bride happy.

Dull, dark eyes do not make a Bride happy.

There is nothing 'moody' about this newly wed couple. They are quite happy in appearance.

They no doubt got 'moody' when they saw these photos.

These are not available light images. Almost all of your images inside are under-exposed and one can see how you tried to recover detail from the shadows.

How could a photog garner new bookings by showing couples these pictures?

I suggest you Google 'Top notch wedding photographers' and review their portfolios before you book another wedding.

Don't take any of this personally, this is just as a wake-up call, to get you on the right track to making couples happy they hired you.

I found the set you refer to above just as the photographer had intended..... Purposely very dark, moody, and unconventional.

Certainly the set is all those 3.  I will be curious to hear a response from Brian Kraft whether or not he discussed what he was going to do with the wedding couple and/or showed them examples of his work......not to mention what the couple thought of the final result.

If you looked at the other URL you may have found just as creative but more non-legal-action-worthy images that are great in my opinion.
