Alright…my husband and I got married on June 1st 2013. We hired a photographer but never recieved our photos. 🙁 I took the photographer to court, I won the case but of course it doesn’t really matter because I still have to rely in the photographer to supply the pictures or a refund. My husband and I are still pretty upset about it and are trying to decide what to do…we have contemplated “renewing vows” or just getting dressed back up and having pictures taken. I would love to have opinions from others on what you would do. 🙂

- Wedding: June 2014 - San Francisco, CA
Did any guests take photos? You could put out the call to them, see what they come up with.

Mrs.Denham: I’m so sorry, that really blows. I think it might be a bit on the early side to renew vows (especially if you plan on inviting the same family/friends). Unless you hold off until your 5 year anniversary.
rachel85‘s suggestion is good. But if you’re not satisfied with the guest photos and want more professional pics, I would probably just get dressed up and do a photo shoot.

So sorry! What were the reasons if any he didn’t deliver? I’d still try to get my photos.

If I were in this situation I would just do a new photoshoot rather than a vow renewal.

NJatTheDisco: unfortunately no reasoning was given. I have made multiple phone calls and sent what feels like a million emails and nothing has been returned.

Mrs.Denham: Oh no! I hope you got some half decent guest photos. Do a photo shoot, you can have a nice relaxing day and it would be a good excuse to wear your dress again. I hope the photographer provides your photos, even if just the originals, then maybe you can get them edited byy someone reliable.

I’d maybe make a website or forum and invite everyone at your wedding, explain the situation, and ask for any and all copies of photos they might have actually taken at your wedding. Then, I would probably do a photoshoot. Maybe even bring close friends and family if possible, and see if you could use the space you got married in. It would be fun, and while not the same, at least it is an excuse to wear your dress again!
My grandmother in law’s father was a photographer, but for her wedding they decided to hire a photographer so he could enjoy the wedding. Turns out the photographer ruined the film and there were no photos, so they all went back to the church, put on their wedding attire again and reinacted the wedding while her dad took pictures. She was upset at the time, but now she has a story to tell, and you would never know from the pictures.
