    Oh my gosh...I don't even know what to say... Everyone on here is SO generous!
    Pro photogs Story By Photo also kindly edited a few of the pics for us as well... Big shout-out to them too!
    This is by far the worst story I've ever heard. Is there a Better Business Bureau for Weddings? Or in Mexico? I feel like he should be reported officially, not just on our forum!!
    Good question!

    DEFINITELY have your guests take pics JUST IN CASE! And with so many "hobby" photogs out there, one of your guests may have almost a good a camera as your pro photog:-)

        So sorry to hear that things didn't turn out as expected. It's a shame that you had to pay so much and not get quality pictures. I agree that you should get some of your guests photos- those pics came out much better.

          Hey guys! I figured I'd jump on this train and say that i used Cancun wedding photography as well. I didn't have Michael for our wedding, but we had him for our TTD and he was great with us, BUT it's been 6 weeks and we've heard nothing from him. We've tried calling, emailing (which is now sending it back to us) and filling out forms on his website to ensure that he gets something. We even have our wedding cordinator calling and she's had no luck. I don't know what to do!? HELP!

            Yikes...I just sent you a PM with all the e-mails I have for CWP...
            It could be possible they're just busy after all the summer weddings... but I would think SOMEONE would respond to your e-mails!??
            Again...poor customer service

              My friend jaime can work with editing and creating a nice albumn for you from the disc he provided. She's done this for others who have had similar experiences. another friend just got married in June and used Michael and didn't say anything bad, but they also don't have their pics yet either. I was considering using him for a few hours since my friend will be doing most of our pics. But since she is in the wedding i still need another photographer. email me if you want her website and contact info. right now she is pretty busy with 2 weddings each weekend, but soon she will have time to dedicate to projects like this. those photos are almost comical with the arms up in the air. I hope you have some nice pics for your album

                  Awww.... you are SO sweet! Thank you so much -- sincerely appreciated!:-)
                  However, I am SLOWLY but surely, through lots of trial and even more error, designing my album pages with Lumapix Fotofusion and a free trial of Lightroom to edit some of the pics:-)
                  If it all goes to crap, however, it's REALLY good to know I have this as a back-up:-)

                  Your friend got married in June and used Michael and she STILL doesn't have her pics?? That sounds like a long time to me...but again, maybe that's b/c June is such a busy wedding season...?

                  Thanks -- and actually, in going through all the pics to design some album pages, I've found some really nice ones our guests took... Problem is, not all the ones I want to use are high enough resolution... ~Sigh~ :-) But I think/hope there will be enough...
                  (of course, still doesn't make up for the key moments Michael missed...no pictures of our rings - NOT ONE! - and us walking down the aisle...)
