I got so many compliments on the ones I framed. They are small on the computer b/c I had to shrink them to fit them. To me they are gorgeous and worth the money. I got TEN b/c I didn't want to upgrade AND then I had him print all the extras that I wanted to frame and those I can't put online seeing as they are in frames on the wall. I got TEN to a disk but not just ten. My DH is a student and I don't have buttloads of extra money for photos. Michael told me personally he keeps pictures indefinitely and I can come back later and get the same price I paid originally to get more pictures.
I am not taking his back b/c I know he has changed policy I see both sides to this. I just got a little tiffed at the above remark. I find it rude to put down someone elses wedding pictures. I wish all the brides the best. Personally I think people are getting fired up. I would personally do what Heidi did and contact the RIU sales.
I need to apologize for my harsh wording. I certainly may have rushed to judgement on the images that I saw. Of course it was you wedding day and you do look amazing and you'll treasure these images forever as you should.
Being a professional photographer as well as a bride I would have to say that this is NO WAY to do business, it's not good for the club nor is it good for the brides. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and alothough I may have made those statements, I really didn't think that they were something that someone who calls themself a professional should be giving his clients. But then again being a photographer I might have a different way of looking at it.
So I apologize if I offended you. You love them and that's all that should matter....
