- Wedding: March 2013
I hire a photographer/ videography for our wedding, he had been the photographer at my friends wedding and I like his style so I hire him, he provided contract with the amiunt of pictures he was giving us and the video time and the total cost. oN t
he day of the wedding, after church we were suppose to go to park to take pictures but because of some timing issue that wasnt communicated to limo driver we could not go to park so photographer had a studio so he told us to go to his studio that he would take pictures of us and our bridesmaids and photoshopped scenes as if we were in park so we agree. BIG MISTAKE!! When we made the contract he put he would be with us all day but after we took photos he stayed in his studios and did not come with us to reception which ee needed him to take pictures of gardens in venue since we didnt have time for park. he came late to reception so we could of.taken pic later in wedding but he didnt say anything and I was too busy to remind him. I
t has been a year and 5 months since the wedding and the photographer has not until this date given any picture or video
which we hired through him. He provided a contract but it
does not state the terms of payment it was agree verbally that
everything photo and videos would be paid in two parts, day of wedding was half and when evertyhing was given to finalize, we would pay the other half, well until now we have given him half of what we agree, the package did
not include all pics only certain amount of pic for a flat price and any addtitional pic was an extra cost , of course I like most of pics that he took , that the amount we set was not enough so we had to pay more for extras but It wasnt still all of pics . It was 10 months after wedding that we got to see pics he took, by this time he wanted us to pay in spot for extra pic, so he could work on our other pics , so we paid.
only thing left to pay is the video, but he has not until this day given us any pictures that we already paid. he says he is working on them , but doesnt call doesnt say anything, we are the one that have to be on top of.him and he always says he is too busy. The pictures that he was going to photoshopped now he is telling us he cant really do . am tired of going back and forth , I want at least the
pics that we paid for already. At this point I want either evertything he took that day so I can give to
another photographer that can do the job and able to photoshop those that we were not in park. Or dress up again and go to park and venue to retake pics , I am desperate. Do I have a reason to sue this guy ? He has now kind of threaten us in a way that he i
s going to leave the country. I fear that if he does I wont truly get pics or.video. can I get any advise with this.mess.please? And what I should do?
