Need Advice - Photographer Mia, Wedding In 12 Days!

Recommended Posts



We finally spoke to the photographer yesterday. My fiance found her on WhatsApp and sent her a message to call him - she did within 30 minutes. He explained our concerns and frustrations very clearly and let her know this level of service was not acceptable to us - or to the other brides who are waiting for their pictures. She did apologize and said she had some health issues in March/April and it has put her behind - she sounded embarrassed that brides were upset with her and asked if I had their names for her to call and apologize to them directly. She offered to let us not make any additional payments until she sends us the tracking number letting us know our photos are on their way, which is what we would have suggested anyway. She also immediately sent a follow up email to us with another apology and confirming the payment arrangement.


All in all, my preference would still be to go with the other photographer. But at this point that doesn't feel like the right thing to do. If brides had said she was unprofessional or a problem on their actual wedding day, I would in a heartbeat. But that is not the case - so I have to just let it go now and trust that it'll be fine.


I do hope I did some small benefit in telling her in a constructive way (versus coming across like a demanding bridezilla) about the abundance of concerns floating around out there about her! If she really didn't know how big of an issue this was for her clients, and now she does, perhaps she'll be more on top of it for future brides so they aren't in a complete frenzy a week before their wedding!

@@beckys98 So glad you got this worked out before you left for the wedding. I can't imagine the extra stress of this happening so close to your big day.


I think it's great that you've made her understand the consequences of her actions in a constructive way - just taking beautiful pictures isn't enough if the bride never gets to see them! Hopefully she gets her act together now and you'll have your beautiful wedding photos within the timing specified in your contract  :)

    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
