Hello everyone,

I should start with saying that I am not in the photography business, not in the least. I do kid or family shoots if someone asks me but not for a lot of money to be sure. It's more my hobby.

Anyway my sister-in-laws brother was getting married and they asked me to shoot the wedding. I nervously agreed, but made absolutely certain they knew that I had NEVER done a wedding before and have zero such experience. So they weren't expecting me to be a perfect pro at it. So yes, some of the pictures could definitely have turned out better, I could have done more creative shots, etc. but it didn't go to badly.

Now I realize that I have not one shot of the bride with bridesmaids or the groom with groomsmen... only group shots. I am horrified!! Do I just tell them? Or do I try to crop them out of one? Or find someone who can photoshop one together...

It might be possible to crop or photoshop one, but in your position having told them you were inexperienced I'd be tempted to say nothing, edit the pics and only give them the good ones. If they later challenge you I'd remind them that you did warn them not to expect pro pics (thats what they PAY for)I'm assuming you haven't charged them?

I did their engagement photos, they were very happy and voluntarily paid me $40. Anyway when we discussed the wedding I told her I was buying a few items and how about $200 just to pretty much cover my costs. She thought that was more than fair and paid $250. So yes I did charge them something... but certainly not a 'pro price'.

Yes, 250$ is really very less price. Some professional photographer take 3000$ and more for the engagement and wedding also.
