- Wedding: July 2011
I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place concerning my photographer…
You see, we booked a friend of my fiance who is trying to break into the wedding industry. He takes great photos and says he has shot weddings in the past, but is unable to produce any shots due to his computer crashing. We have a great deal with him– $500 for engagement photos, rehearsal dinner and a full day of wedding photog. Plus we will have a professional photog as a second shooter (a good friend/mentor of his whom we’ve met).
Here’s the thing…we shot our engagement photos in October, and we still have not received them back. He sent us three to pacify us until the rest are done. Apparently his computer died and he had to send in for a new one, and that’s been the hold up. But it appears he is just overbooked with life. 3 months is a ridiculous turn around for engagement photos! I want to switch photographers (to the professional who is currently our second shooter) but our current guy is my fiance’s good childhood friend and his family is very close/supporters of my fiance’s family. At this point, I’ve lost my confidence in him and his abilities, and feel this will be a hindrance on getting the photos I want for our wedding day.
