@SoontobeMrsA: yeah seriously. If people are setting up contests like this, they need to make sure that they are gathering a group of PROFESSIONAL vendors

Sales tax thing sounds like sham for them to pocket some dough.  Why are they paying sales tax?  On what revenue?  You WON the package, you are not paying them so what are you paying tax on?????

yeah…please let the contest organizer know never to use this vendor. It seems more of a punishment than a reward.

yes, make sure the money you give him will actually be for tax, not just money that he’s scamming from you. who is this photographer? potential customers need to know who they are dealing with, especially if they call themselves pros. 

email and complain with the show that ran the contest; let them know exactly what happened. this way, his bad behavior doesn’t stay hidden.

i’m so sorry that this happened to you; i’m glad you have a great photographer lined up!

@GreenEyedMoon: Ummmm… front what I understand about taxes and winnings, YOU are supposed to pay the tax on anything won.  Kinda like if you win a car, you have to pay the state the tax, not the dealership who offered up the car.  Same thing here.  Sounds like he just wanted some extra $$.

I also agree you should tell whoever offered up the contest.  But don’t just review him, review ALL of the vendors, so they’ll know who to keep and who to ditch 😉

Ugh, so sorry you had to deal with this!  

If it makes you feel better, we have to take a 3+ hour trip from where I live to the Hampton Roads/Norfolk area for our engagement photos.  I’m hoping my gown comes in by then, so I can take it along for bridal photos.  Otherwise, I won’t be getting them unless they’re taken on our wedding day.

The tax thing is BS, he’s trying to make money off you. And what permission? He can shoot in any public area in Dallas, he only needs permission for privately owned property. I am glad you cut this guy out, the thought of you doing a boudiour with him creeps me out. He’s NOT a professional.

Even if he is correct about paying taxes (which I think he is wrong, wrong, wrong) but let’s assume he is–why would he need your Dl and SS card? This screams SCAM! I would have no problem going on  review boards and lettting everyone know about his behavior (not your opinions about his photos).
