Cancelling ROR Photographer?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

So now I'm really stressed!


I just got an offer from a local photographer (co-workers friend) to come to Jamaica for the week and photograph our wedding etc.


Now..I've already booked Michael because at the time I couldn't find anyone here to come with us. I have a tight budget and could only afford to bring 1 person.


So, I have this offer and have booked Michael for 2 1/2 hours & 50 pics on a disk (total cost is $700 Canadian). It would cost me anywhere from $900 to $1100 to bring the photographer.


Does anyone know if Michael charges a fee to cancel his services?!?!?! If he does it won't be worth me cancelling his services as that would cost more money and I'm running out of it lol

I just looked at the correspondence that Michael sent me early this year before my wedding. There is nothing mentioned about a cancellation fee. Maybe you should take a look at any emails that he sent you & just check.

Thn I would send him an email saying that your plans have changed & you no longer need his services. Then see what his response is and if he mentions any fee's. How much did you deposit with him?


If he gives you a hard time, maybe you could keep him & change him from 2 1/2 hours to 1 hour so that the $700 is reduced to something less and then use that 1 hour for something else.

I just looked at all of my correspondence from Michael that he sent me early this year. There is no mention of cancellation fee's in any of his emails.

You should check the emails that he has sent you & see if they are mentioned.

Then, I'd send him an email telling him that your plans have changed and you're no longer in need of his services. See what his response is & if he mentions any cancellation fees.

How much did you deposit with him already?


If his response is negative, then maybe you could reduce the 2 1/2 hours with him to maybe 1 hour which would decrease your $700 fee.

I haven't paid Michael at all as of yet. I'm thinking that there shouldn't be a fee..but who knows.


I looked through my emails and found nothing about cancelling etc.


I like the idea of someone coming with us because at least I won't be concerned about time etc.


Still thinking about it......

This is what is listed on the 2009 Price List that Michael had sent another forum member:



Time & picture arrangements are no subject to refund as arranged shortly (within 5 days before the wedding / Photo appointment)


If you haven't made any payments I wouldn't worry. I would cancel by the 14th, out of courtesy, which would keep you out of the 5 day period he asked for.Hope this helps!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
