"Can you do something about it in all the pictures we choose for the album ?"

By contract I dont do that.

That belly is temporary due to a very unfortunate issue, I shot her wedding too and I will see them all next year in another wedding of a friend !

Tough situation for me !

Can you charge them for it? That's the only way I would consider doing it, especially if she's in as many photos as I'd imagine the bride or groom's sister would be in. I'm sure you can farm it out to a retouching service too, if you didn't want to do the work yourself.

Exactly, never say 'no', just tell them how much.

I paid for some retouch work once, mostly out of curiosity. I tried Retouchup. They did pretty good work. I think the most that they charge is $10/image for drastic changes. So if you count up the number of images needing belly-reduction, add 50-100% markup, you stand to make a little money and the client gets their desired distorted reality to remember their wedding day by. Win-win.

Ugh. Sometimes I feel like I'm desperately trying to manufacture some kind of distorted reality at so many weddings but constrained to use light and optics rather than a paintbrush. We are in the fantasy creation business.

I don't shoot weddings so much, but I have done some high-end private parties.

I was asked to slim down the birthday girl at one particular high-end event for all the album images. I retouch every single image for these type of albums, so I said yes of course.

The question we have to ask ourselves is whether we are creating a historically accurate document that the world will investigate, or are we remembering the dream?

Tidying up the backgrounds, making it look a little sunnier, taking away tired eyes, a little skin treatment here and there... I've even made adjustments to eyelashes when it turned out my client had lost a fake eyelash and so had mismatching lashes...

These are just pictures. If the client covers the cost, then yes why not. For my top end albums the client is most certainly covering pretty much anything, and I'm happy to make them happy.

It is curious to have such a request if the temporary issue is due to pregnancy - usually a thing to celebrate. Perhaps its just a minor bump and they feel the pregnant look is a minor "inconvenience" to the aesthetics? It may be useful to ask why and discuss their concerns.

Hmmmmmmm, perhaps I should make a wedding venue that is all green screen so the photographer can change the location to the dream of the couple. Want an outside beach wedding, no problem. Inside a castle, yup can do that. High up in the mountains, coming right up. Groom: "get you get rid of my mother-in-law", sure buddy.
