    Take her to court! You'll likely win.

    Take her to court, but you might not win because...

    Don't take her to court because...

    She might sue you because...

    I think that given the nature of the lack of contract, it might get sticky – but you ought to win. I would totally take her to small claims court, IF in the case that you file and somehow lose, you would be able to stand the loss of the $100.  She needs to pay for services rendered. 


    I have the the feeling that she is tasteless when it comes to photography, and wouldn’t know the difference between a grainy photo and a clear one (And doesn’t care!) i feel like she doesn’t understand how photography works, and because she doesn’t get it she doesn’t realize you were not shooting with a video camera.

    Did you already give her all of the images? (Or did she see web-res images only?) Basically…do you have any leverage other than court?

    @OnceUponATime:  I’m so sorry this happened to you but I agree with PPs to let it go. I did some freelance writing for a total sham company which owes me like $250 as well. I even sent my claim to the state attorney general. I was sooo furious, it’s more about the principle of the matter than actually getting that money, ya know? But I let it go and eventually I forgot about it altogether (until I saw your post, hehe). It wasn’t worth it to sue and I’m an attorney who can do all the work myself.
