@cheetah2b:  Why are you being rude? Is it just a fun thing for you or something you can’t help? The OP has explained repeatedly that her civil ceremony did NOT include her family andfriends. Choosing to have the wedding you never had a few years later shouldn’t make you subject to hateful comments. You don’t know the intricacies of their story and why things happened the way they did so your personalcomments about her motives are unfounded and say much more about you than they do about her.

@mariematt:  I hope so. Here ours are separate between liability and what they call ” professional liability” which is essentially e and o. And I bought a ppa member for access to their lawyers via the indemnity trust better to be super covered!!

All I’m saying is why do people care what others decide to do.. I hate the term “Pretty Princess Day” but damn it, if I choose to dress up as a princess for my wedding.. So what!! It’s a celebration with family and friends to share of a marriage.. It doesn’t matter if it’s her first marriage, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th year vowel renewal or 2nd or 3rd marriage..Why do some of you ladies really care what she did or does..It’s not you, your life and it doesn’t affect you all!! All I know if tables were turn and your photographer lost all your images do to their own error, you would all probably feel the same Way.. Omfg, let it [email protected]& go!!

@jeni.deidre:  Based on some of your recent responses, I’m wondering if she actually took more than 100 pictures or if her lens cap was on all night (metaphorically speaking).

Please read the pm I sent you. I REALLY think you should read it. 

I wish you the best of luck in this situation. 

Also, you might want to take down personal pictures. It’s the Internet and you never know what might happen.

I’m sorry but the mean girl attitude bugs me so much. Would it bother you if I posted the link to that thread? Also, is it against the TOS here if I do?

I just feel that it can serve as a warning. Even though most of you bees seem so kind there are some amongst you that do love drama and try to tear people down. I don’t even feel like it’s high school behavior because I don’t know very many people that acted like that in high school.

@jeni.deidre:  I’m so tired of reading some of these responses. I was mad enough for you just reading your original post, but then the responses that you got from some people. Wow! I feel you definitely have a right to be upset about this. Who cares if you were already married. This is your first WEDDING. Even if you’d been divorced and remarried many times, it wouldn’t matter. You paid for a photographer to capture the memories from THIS WEDDING. And not 100 images mostly filled with tablecloths and such. And it sounds like your photographer understands this or she wouldn’t be offering anything! Why some of these people responding don’t agree is beyond me.

It does at least sound like your photographer is working with you, which is good. Maybe you guys can work something out without you having to go through the hassle of suing her. But if not, then she has insurance so hopefully that will help. (But I did stop reading on page 4, so I don’t know if more information has come out about what this might cover.)

I hope everything gets worked out to your satisfaction. I know you’ll never get this day back so there’s no way to make it completely right. But hopefully you can at least come to some sort of acceptable resolution.

By The Way, your video teaser is pretty amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

I think she just delivered the 100 photos she had straight out of camera so you would have SOMETHING, and to show that it was a hard drive issue because the very last 100 shots of the night were still in her camera.

Here’s what confuses me: I don’t know of any pro camera that has internal memory. The memory is stored on memory cards. So is she saying that these last 100 shots were on a memory card that she left in her camera for all that time and didn’t copy over? It’s a confusing situation.

I think you should try to dig for more details. When did the hard drive crash? how long has it been? If the drive crashed shortly after the wedding, did she try recovery on the memory cards themselves? Images can be recovered from memory cards if they haven’t been shot over.

Also, it dawned on me that those sheet shots may have been her trying to set the white balance in her camera for the lighting situation in your reception venue. Obviously she wasn’t taking those photos to deliver to you and if she had all of your images those would have never made the cut. I truly believe that she was just giving you everything she had.
