I just wanted to write to you all and also get some advice on something that has happened regarding the photographer we decided to go with.
We found a photographer on snapknot.com who had really low prices and packages so we decided to meet with them to learn more. We ended up meeting with them in November and gave them our deposit. We agreed on having the engagement shoot in December nd our photographer stated he would be emailing us in the upcoming weeks with engagement shoot locations ideas and so forth. About a week before the planned shoot I realized I had not heard from him and sent him an email. No reply. Tried calling, texting, emailing again, and nothing. The engagement shoot day came and went, and still didn’t hear anything. I then started to worry that maybe something had happened to him or his wife. But then I had a friend contact them as a potential client, and he emailed her back THE SAME DAY. I was furious. He was purposefully ignoring me and continuing on with his scheme.
To this day I have still not heard from him, and have sent him numerous emails, calls, texts asking for my money back. Has anyone dealt with something like this or know where to go from here? I went to the cops and they told me they could not help me. Only other option is to go to small claims court but only problem is how will I get in touch with him to deliver the court summons? Any advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
Also the lesson from this is NEVER do business with someone who no one you know has done business with either. HUGE MISTAKE!
