My Experience with [photog named removed]
Posted 13 March 2009 - 02:22 PM
I'm very glad that you switched photographers, and I think that money lost will be considered money well spent to get out of that situation.
Again, I'm sorry you had to deal with that, but thank you SO much for being so honest and up front for other BDW brides. That is, after all, what we are all here for... advice and information.

if [photographer name removed] has a problem with reading peoples comments about her personality and how she handles herself professionally, then maybe she needs to take a good long look in her mental mirror and figure out how to take amazing compliments about her work mixed with honest reviews about her professionalism.
heather, there is nothing legal she can do. you are allowed to freely say how you feel about something that happened to you, and it is a matter of your opinion. if this review stops another DW bride who reads this from hiring [photographer name removed] , then maybe that should be a point to [photographer name removed] to re-align her professional manner with what DW brides are looking for in a photog.
It truly is a shame that some people can't handle the negative criticisms...sometimes the truth hurts you know?

Hmmm...if that's the case, shouldn't all those people who leave their opinions on tripadvisor be getting sued too??
as for my own $0.02. i find it entertaining that a 'professional' can't handle any criticism. ummm hello - not everyone is always happy with you and when multiple people (this photog has had multiple unhappy customers) say the same thing - well honey it's time to take a big fat look in the fucking mirror KWIM?
and legal action? slander? ROFL
then tripadvisor wouldn't exist. reviews are not slander.
what an idiot!
and take a course on "interpersonal communication"

I like to call it "The Power of the FORUM"
If you are nice, helpful and play by the rules this site can do AMAZING things for a vendor's business. Likewise, if you do not play by the rules and act in a negative manner it can drastically hurt your business. In fact, I *just* told this to a vendor who is currently in the process of joining (I recommended it to her because I like her work and she has been pleasant to work with).
This is a powerful place/group, like it or not! You will receive back what you put out 10,000x (or however many members we have on here! ).
Oh, and Heather - KUDOS to you, doll for sticking to your guns. You're leading the way! It is SO important to receive honest and thoughtful reviews, whatever they may be.

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

all that matters is you are going to have an awesome wedding and now have a great photog who won't treat you like a 5th grade bully AND Morgan hooked you up with 3 nights. all good

But anywho, thanks for the honest review, sorry you had to deal with that. It's great that we have this forum to help each other out so things like this don't happen to everyone.
Good luck finding a new photographer and I hope have great pics to show us when you get back.

I don't know where I've been...stuck in the subscribed threads I guess!! lol
Like all the other girls, I'm sorry you are having to deal with this added stress. It sure does suck! But you know, they say everything happens for a reason!! I believe that you are going to have the most AMAZING photos!! And make sure you post them ALL OVER BDW so this unnamed photographer has a good look at the amazing wedding she did not get to shoot!!
for Morgan. You are truly amazing!!! If there were more people in the world like you it would be a much better place!!
