Not overreacting – you paid for and therefore you are owed those photos! It’s a total breach of consumer Law for him to not give them to you. You had a contract after all. 

Go to the ombudsman, or the consumer regulator of whatever part of the world you’re in! I sure as hell would!

Edited photos are a wonderful keepsake, and can never be undervalued.

You are owed those edited photos. Did you sign a contract?

tropbride1 :  what an unprofessional tool he is.  He got your money so he’s moved on.  I would show up at his studio.  It’s ridiculous to wait that long!  It appears he has no intention in following through on your photos…

tropbride1 :  this is absurd and (presumably) a breach of contract. What does your contract actually say? Does it specify that the photos you receive will be edited? What is the timeframe given in the contract

at this point, i would contact the photographer with a demand letter saying that you require your edited photographs by X date, or you will initiate legal action against him. This is not the time to worry about being pushy.

At this point you need to threaten legal action.  Indicate the days and means by which you’ve contacted him since the wedding along with the excuses he gave.  Then give him a firm date that the pics must be delivered.  Like, a week tops.

Not overracting a bit! My wedding photographer was horrible, I hate my wedding photos, but there is nothing I can do about that now and I know someone who was married over a year ago and has yet to see her wedding photos. I agree with PP, you may need to take the legal route – light a fire under their ass.

You’re not overreacting! You paid for a very important product and if he doesn’t provide it he has stolen from you. Don’t write it off yet at all. Stop worrying about being pushy because at this point you need to be. Send a firm email stating that it has been 9 months and he has told you mutiple times that he would get them to you but has not kept to his deadlines. You require the photos as agreed by one week’s time or you will be looking at legal avenues to get the product you paid for.
