Hey all, Its been awhile since I have posted.
I got married on May 25, and it was in a word, an ordeal. Not the best day of my life, but it is over and I am spending the rest of my life with the man of my dreams.
On the wedding day, my photographer told me that he would be sending me my pictures 4-6 weeks from the wedding. I waited until about 6 and a half weeks until I contacted him, because its summer and I figured he had vacations and stuff with his family planned. It now has been 8 weeks, and I have emailed him twice, my husband has emailed him, my mother in law and my mother have called him multiple times and we still have not heard anything back from him. I am not sure what steps to take next. Any advice?

@brandybelle: First off, I would step back and take a deep breath. Relaxxx 🙂
Was it in your contract that he would take 4-6 weeks for wedding photos? Or did he just *say* that? I would refrain from having everyone try and get a hold of him because that probably more frustrates him than anything.
I would give him until maybe the end of August. Wedding season really is NUTS and last minute events happen, it’s just a mess. However, if it is in the contract then he is, by law, required to send you your completed photos.
If the contract does in fact state that time frame, I would send him a handwritten letter stating that you agreed to something that said a certain time frame and if he does not deliver the photos by a certain date (say sometime end of September since that’s MORE than enough time) then you will be taking further actions.
Make that written letter the ONLY contact you have with him. Save any and all emails, texts, messages, anything. I’m sure he just got busy, but that is not an excuse. He promised you a time frame, that should be adhered to at all costs.

@brandybelle: Check your contract, if he’s still late, send him and email/text or a phone call…just one and just once. Give him time to call back, it’s peak wedding season and photogs are notorious for not having pics ready when they guesstimate.

4-6 weeks is a short period of time…..especially in peak wedding season….
