Sorry I’m not seeing it either JoeHomeowner.
Your not very sharp example is a detail shot of her necklace, not crazy for sepia, but the focus is on the necklace
The black and white isn’t flat. I agree that it was done as a black and white to try to save the photo but only because the moment was so good and the tog knows that the client will enjoy it.
No, jzpics is NOT a fauxtographer. They seem quite competent to me. NO, not the be all and end all of the photography world. There were no jaw dropping heart stopping works of art going on, but I don’t think your friend will be disappointed in their photographs. Looks like this photographer will document it well. I’m with CC, I doubt he’ll be within their budget though
