- Wedding: July 2012
Are you serious right now? Is this happening???
*I ask a photog couple I know if they have suggestions for my Destination Wedding, if they know anyone in the South West Florida are, recommendations..MONTHS AGO
*She says they’ll look around, asks my budget
* I give her the budget, they talk it over and come back with the suggestion that they would do it for that, two photogs, stay at the Destination Wedding for a day or two, fly back-i’m super excited, they have exactly the style I want
*We all agree, she says she’ll send a price list and a contract
*We message about the wedding, I add her into my FB wedding group (keeping it out of everyone’s face on FB)
*We comment back and forth on things on FB, we have mutual friends, yada yada yada
*I have a falling out with a mutual friend (she and the mutual friend are in the same circle of bff, the mutual friend is an ex Bridesmaid or Best Man to me)
*I fb message the photog, aware that she may know about the fight but I don’t mention it (it wasn’t broadcast, even though the other girl tried to do that and I shut it down..not on fb please) I just say we’re excited, let us know your plans on how to arrive if you need us to get you from the airport, we’re sending a check, what’s your address
* I get message with address, we talk about wedding/I tell her to send a contract again, the one she sent was just a price list that “doesn’t pertain to me” since i’m getting the pal discount (still $2000)
* I send a message asking if we should make a list of pics we want, she doesn’t reply **red flag? This is their business, and they are ALWAYS posting pics They are mainly through FB. I comment on a pic, ask her a question on her status telling her to “check your maillll!!!!” smiley face etc
*photog doesnt answer my message/comment
*i send another one stating we sent the deposit check and to send me the contract (may 6)
*20 mins ago I get this
Hey lady!!! So, husband and i got your check in the mail the other day. Husband went to work and requested off those days and they DENIED HIM. I dont know what to do? He cant quit his job I mean I could shoot it on my own but, i dont want you to be disappointed. I’m so sorry I dont know what to do. I can mail your check back or destroy it either way.
I know there was never an actual contract. I’m talking about the BALLS of some people. Obviously I haven’t replied, I came right here to vent. WTF!!! For months we have talked about this and you never KNEW IF YOU COULD COMMIT?!?! In one of her FB messages she is telling me to stay cool, we “have till July” when I told her I was sending a deposit. Now that I SENT the deposit, she doesn’t know if she can come?? <<<<< sketch
I want to tell her to come alone, just to see if she will. Obviously I think this is my ex Bridesmaid or Best Man trying to sabatoge (she did this before,and now she is engaged, they just shot her pics) This is just unprofessional to me. We are getting married in 67 days. Which is WHY I WAS TRYING TO GET A CONTRACT AND MAIL THE DEPOSIT.
**the only thing that we wanted for the wedding-no flowers, no huge venue, no music..just a beach ceremony and dinner……was the photographer. BOOOO
*As a wanna be professional photog, I’m pretty shocked and disappointed by this
Obviously I won’t post all the FB messages where she is “so excited, you’re having my dream wedding (they just married a year ago) we can’t wait, blah blah blahhh”…I just think the unfairness and unprofessionalism of this SUCKS
Vent over. I have to go find a new photog now.
