i’m so glad to hear things are settled!  what a terrible thing to have happen, though it is good to hear you do have some great photos.

I just read this post for the first time and it was making me sick to my stomach.  I could not imagine what makes peopel disregard professionalism when they are hired to capture a moment  in our lives.  Something you can’t get back. 

But I am so happy to hear that your guests and officiant were able to provide you with some expert and unique pictures that may have never been captured had they been trying to stay out of the professionals way.  Your attitutude is also great…  I had a mini meltdown yesterday regarding my invitations- but this is a reminder that all I have to do on time is get married.  Thanks!

I read this and thought if it were me, I would have lost it!  I was at one point in photography school, and I think the photos are the one majorly important thing about a wedding.  That being said, I had a photographer for 9 hours and there are still a ton of shots I "wish" we had gotten.  So, while we did get photos of most things, even with 2 photographers there for that long, you would have still missed something – what I learned from our wedding day that even the most carefully planned event can be thrown of by the slightest things.  You would always wish you had that one shot of you and your flowergirl or whatever/whomever else.  So, I commend you on taking the higher road here!  I know I would be furious and probably try to get revenge of some sort by tarnishing her rep.  Good for you.  And at least you had guests who took photos!  All of ours tell me they don’t have any, then I get the video and I see them all snapping away all night!  Now I have to hunt them all down ; )

I’m really impressed by how you’ve handled this and your feelings about her. I’m sure you just want to move on, but since you seem to have a unique take on your relationship with her (and she seems to want very badly to make amends), what if you asked her for a free 2-hour shoot of the two of you?
