Personally, if you are still getting the photos, I believe you should pay for them, but at a very discounted rate.  If you are not getting any photos, then a refund.  If it were me, I wouldn’t expect her to work for free (the substitute photographer) and if you ask for a full refund, you might not get the pictures (i.e. its a canceled contract).  I understand the argument that she should provide them for free due to the very high inconvenience, but a service was delivered.  If you are wanting the final product, it would be best to settle on a discounted rate IMO.

cateyes:  “most contracts will say the photographer is not liable for more than the amt the clients paid, so suing her would just be ugly and ineffectual.”

Agreed.  In the heat of the moment the knee jerk reaction is to want to litigate, but in reality, it just drags out the misery and bad memories for a long time.  You will spend minimum $10 – $15k and you will likely settle for much less once the legal fees start to stack up.  Its just not reasonable if you are concerned about the money.

SprinkleDonut:  Hopefully you can find someone with some photoshop skills who can save the rest of your pictures.

I’m amazed at the amount of work that goes in to editing.  Our photographer will post before and afters of some of her pictures on FB and it’s amazing what she can do.
