    @KarenA:  Can you pop round and bring it up? Did you have a contract?

    omg! That would make me furious! Did you pay her in full? I would totally be more demanding.

    It’s only 2 weeks late and she’s dealing with a major personal problem (custody fight). I understand that you want your photos, but I also think you should cut her a little slack. Can you call her (instead of texting) and talk to her about how she’s doing personally and when she thinks she can give you your photos. You can also let her know that you’d really like to get at least one good photo as soon as possible for the thank you cards.

    Yes, I would be super pissed because of the fact she’s goofing around on Facebook, despite her custody issues and not making good on her promise.

    Here’s what I would do in your case: call her (pp are right-don’t text) and tell her you need the pics by X deadline because the golf course needs them by a certain date and because she is holding you up on thank you cards.

    Tell her if she can’t make the deadline then you will be coming over to pick them up because you found someone else who can finish the job (hopefully you haven’t paid her in full).

    If TELL rather than ask, it usually gets you want a lot faster. Good luck:)

    Did you pay her full price or did she give you services? Not that it’s okay, but could be a reason why she’s doing other people’s photos before yours.

    I definitely think you should not wait around for the photos for your thank you cards though.

    If she already has pictures up from another wedding that was after yours and none of yours, that would get me upset. She’s been giving you the run around from the beginning. I do sympathize what she’s going thru in her personal life, but then she shouldn’t have commited to a job she couldn’t finish on time. Its just business. You paid her to do a job, you had a verbal agreement of when the pictures were going to be ready and she should honor that as a professional. Anyone else would get fired from their job if they were performing poorly, no matter what you’re going thru in your personal life. That’s just life.

    Yeah, you kind of have the right to be upset, but not really IMO.

    a) She was flakey before the wedding, and you knew that. Why would she be any different now?

    b) She’s going through so me major stuff in her personal life. I would guess that since you are a friend and know her situation, she is relying on you to cut her a bit more slack than a normal client might, and be understanding.

    c) You got married August 4. I understand you are anxious for your photos, but it’s been 6 weeks…I’ve seen women who wait months!

    d) She is allowed to go on FB. She doesn’t need to be working 24 hours a day.

    I was wondering if you paid her or did she take the pictures for free?

    Okay, you just answered my question… I would definitly let her know that you really need the pictures A.S.A.P. My first thought was that she had taken the pictures for you as a favor,I had voted that you should cut her some slack. This is strictly business since you paid.  I dont understand why she would finish someone else’s pictures before yours and your wedding was first. I would keep calling until she answered.lol. good luck!

    I would be annoyed because she told you when they would be ready and they weren’t ready- I understand she has issues in her personal life, but most people don’t have the luxury of not making deadlines because of issues in their personal life….

    @KarenA:  yeah, but it sounds like she probably got ‘flaky’  around the time of the custody battle. I would definitely be upset but still a little understanding on your part could go a long way.
