it sucks that she lost your photos. really awful. but it also sounds like she is owning up to her mistake by offering you a full refund plus the cost of a new photo shoot in your hometown. i’m not sure you could do better than that in court. i work in the legal field and i can’t think of a single instance where a judge would grant you an award that would be better than what she is currently offering.

your legal fees would eat up a good amount of any award anyway. in the end, i don’t think legal action would help your situation, and might actually get you less than what you’re currently being offered (when you account for legal fees). this may be a case where you just have to grin and bear it, literally.

personally, i don’t think its right to sue someone who is honoring her commitment to you. now if she just said here’s your 100 photos, that’s it, then that would be a different story. but not only is she willing to give you a full refund, she’s offering to pay for a new shoot. that’s way beyond any obligation and shows that she’s a good person who feels terrible about her mistake. obviously you’re still coming to terms with this. good luck with your decision.

@cheetah2b: 

” THIS is why some people are being ugly to you about a pretty princess day, darling. You’re already married, held a PPD(known to some as dressing up bc you weren’t happy with the decision of a court house ceremony, or very small wedding or wtfe the case), and NOW want to sue for  SECOND REENACTMENT.

give it up. stop talking shit to everyone. stop period. you got good advice, you got good heartfelt comments where a lot of women are truly sorry for you. but you don’t get the EXACT response you want and go stupid. good luck with that.”

REALLY????

What the F*K!? RUDE!!! This, out of all negative comments I have read made me irate. I usually don’t get worked up over this shit (afterall, this is a discussion board) but seriously? She asked for opinions about what do dow with her situation….not opinions on what we think about her fucking personal life. Who the hell are you to judge when she got married, when she had her wedding celebration or what the hell ever.

I am sorry, you seem like a very bitter person…

OP, you definitely don’t need to be defending yourself to these kinda of people. Hater-aid all around!

I’m still shocked that they believe the photographer is right for losing your photos. I always thought if I paid someone for a service and they agreed to it, regardless of the situation/ celebration they needed to complete the contract.

@jeni.deidre:  its funny to even think that you had a ‘reenactment’… lol. I had one too so I guess our wedding celebration was fake too…

 

I loved your video! …1)the dance was fierce 2)that dress was fantabulous!

@jeni.deidre:  The irony of that trashy thread about you on The Knot is that it’s under the etiquette board.[content moderated for name-calling]

At any rate, your teaser video looks to be good quality and I think you’ll be able to pull stills from it. Your videographer may not know quite how to do that (you mentioned he was sort of new to the field) so if you need some assistance finding someone who can do it (or help editing those stills) I am happy to help!

Ugh, this is to heartbreaking! You are totally justified in being angry. A few thoughts that may make you feel better:

-You have the videography, and assuming it’s high-res you should be able to pull off single frames to use as photos.

-Everyone has a camera phone and takes tons of pictures. Send a note out to your guests and ask them to send you every picture from the wedding. You may end up getting some special photos that you would never had seen.

-Wedding photography isn’t new, but it is certainly a bigger thing than it was 15 years ago. Our parents, grandparents, and other relatives all got married and remember the day without 1000 pictures. You won’t forget the special day.

So they FINALLY figured it out. Again they find it upsetting that someone tips another person off of their thread. I don’t get it. I thought it was Internet and it was ok to talk about others in another site. I thought it was definitely ok to link to another site after seeing someone else do it. 

 
My bad.
