chickspartan:  Aww man, that’s brutal! Just curious, when you arranged to have your e pictures done, did you get a signed contract from the photographer with the details of how many photos you would receive and the timeframe for when you would receive them? Contracts are a Godsend in situations like this, because you can hold the photographer in breach (though at this point it sounds like you may be in a bind until the real e pics are done). 

Also, while photographers may have a certain style for capturing photos, most good ones will be open to your input and can manage all of the technicalities involved with taking the types of shots you like- and if for some reason they suspect they can’t meet expectations, they should be able to refer you to someone who can. Sounds like this photographer was nothing more than a hobbyist picture-taker with a half-decent camera trying to make a quick buck. 

Hard luck, for sure. I hope you love your upcoming e-pic session photos 🙂

an amateur photographer is not going to have a contract. Or a good contract anyway. Why go through all the trouble if you are just charging $50??

At least the OP understands now that a quality photographer will charge accordingly.
