I’d agonized over our choice of wedding photographer, and finally chose Gary Tapp Wedding Photography, a Gibraltar wedding photographer based out of Marbella, Spain. Gary Tapp Wedding Photography definitely wasn’t the cheapest, but Gary seemed the most likely to be able to capture the editorial/fashion vibe we were looking for.
Gary Tapp was a wonderful wedding photographer to work with, but we were sadly disappointed when he finally delivered the pictures. They looked exactly like the proofs, he hadn’t processed them at all. There were sharpness, cropping, exposure, white balance and color balance issues… my dress looked a different color in every shooting location, and Robert’s silver Tiffany cufflinks looked gold!
Fortunately, I’m pretty good at photo editing, so it wasn’t a complete disaster, but I feel ripped off and I completely regret hiring Gary Tapp Wedding Photography to do our Gibraltar wedding photos. I’m very upset with how the photos turned out, and I’ve been working my way through them, seething as I corrected issues that should’ve been corrected by Gary before he delivered the photos, and that’s why I haven’t really done a wedding photos post until now.
Our one year anniversary seems like the the perfect time to share a few photos of our Gibraltar wedding day. Despite everything that went wrong, and while I wouldn’t want to relive it, our wedding day was still one of the best and happiest days of my life. And give or take, we’re finally to the point where we can sort of laugh about it.
Robert and I are in London celebrating our first wedding anniversary! Where better to celebrate than in our favorite city? And where better to shop for anniversary gifts than in London? There are lots of paper shops in London ; -)
Then we’re off for a few quiet days in the English countryside because it’s about time I saw more of England than London…
