Photographer deposits and payments
Posted 11 November 2009 - 01:17 AM
I am getting married in the Mayan Riviera. The wedding will be on a Thursday, and we will be leaving on the Saturday. I don't think that is enough time for the photographer to get the prints or the edited images to us before we leave.
My problem is that i don't want to pay for a service/product that i haven't received, and then leave the country.... What if I don't receive the images/photos? (whether it's cause by lost in the mail, or photographer doesn't send..) Is it possible for the photographer to process the images quickly? or alternatively can I hold back the payment until the product is received? I don't mind leaving a credit card number with the photographer, or even with the wedding coordinator.. can someone explain the 'normal' process in a situation like this?

In all though, talk to your photographer! Let him / her know how you feel, your worries and ask your questions! It will make you feel better!

Just an FYI, it takes a very long time to edit weddings, I always tell my clients it can take as long as 3 months. Even though I usually have them done way before then.

Wanting the payment before the wedding date is pretty standard though. If your photographer has good reviews and isn't just some random of the street I'd say you're in good hands.

I think I've come to terms with the fact that I'll be paying up front.
The photographers I'm deciding between have pretty good reputations.
Also, I am sure they would like to keep their reputations good.
