- Wedding: September 2012
Good afternoon bees!
I am sooo raging mad, so I apologize in advance for my rant.
My husband and I got married September 1, and we had 2 photographers on the day. The photographer was around from about 10:30am – 10PM, but for the most of the evening they were attending to a photobooth.
We paid him very good money, and this is his FULL TIME job.
The night of the wedding, he showed us 1 edited photo, of us in a black and white shot…however…
it’s now almost 2 months later, I’ve been very patient, and very relaxed – but we have not heard a WORD about our wedding photos. So, I texted him this morning “Hey (name), any idea when our photos will be ready” – I think it was a pretty calm answer, but I was asking for an idea of when they were ready…NOT THIS…
“Hey (bride)! They are in THE QUE, and things are getting done, I just a much busier summer than expected! Keep in mind, your wedding was later on in the summer, and thanks for being so patient. I’ll try my best to keep you updated.” This is quote for quote.
Okay, wait! (1) I pay you $3500 CDN to be told that I am in a “que” (2) I know when my wedding was, thanks (3) it’s not like you just woke up one day and decided to shoot 15 weddings, you BOOKED them, so if you are too busy to do the photos, DON’T BOOK THAT MANY!!!!!
My claws are out, I am so mad. I asked for a time when they would be ready, and I was basically told after 2 months that I need to keep waiting. I have other photographers on my facebook, and they all post on their blog the photos within a few weeks..me, I’ve seen 1. I looked on his blog a few weeks ago, and saw that 3 weeks after my wedding, he was just posting weddings from June..JUNE! He didn’t have the website designed the way it was now when we first signed on with him, so if I realized it took this long I would have never chosen him as a photographer.
I want my damn wedding photos!
Any brides offer some advice? I looked through our contract and there is nothing stating in it in regards to how long he has to get photos back. So mad!
