I assume he is independent? I would definitely ask him where he went, and make sure he didn’t delete foorage from the whole day. Maybe wait until he gives you what he does have before asking for a refund since he left early

Do you have a contract? You need to at the very least get your money back. What he did was awful and so unprofessional.

I wouldn’t ask for a partial refund until you get the video. Sounds like he has a short fuse and if you piss him off, he could delete the video.

Wait until you get the footage he did record, then dispute your payment and get a refund. Since you have a contract and the video he took (or lack thereof) you have video proof that he did not follow your contract and you should get your money back. You would easily win in court so dont be afraid to threaten him with it.

I would call him and stay calm while you speak to him.  Ask him how much of the wedding he had recorded and how you can get it.  Then, ask him how you can get a partial refund at the very least.   Since he probably has the footage, I would not freak out on him.

I would read over the contract carefully and make sure he didn’t protect himself by saying that everyone had to let him get his own way or whatever.

@MapleBecky: Yes, this is a good idea. You never know the tiny print at the end of contracts…

OMG. Get the video from him, and then get your money back. I am so sorry this happened. I was so mad when I read the part about the album. What a creep. I hope your husband was able to enjoy it at some point…

I wouldn’t say a word until you get the video footage.

If anything at all if you haven’t seen anything in 8 weeks or so, I would shoot him an email asking what date you might be able to expect the video because you’re “really looking forward to it”.

If you say anything about a refund now, or even say anything about court.. you won’t see any footage at all.

I’m so so sorry you’re going through this! How awful! 🙁
