We just got married in Jamaica and I haven't received the pictures yet but I am unhappy with the photographer. The first thing that annoyed me is that I was expecting to get the main photographer for the company. It was a week before the wedding and I hadn't had any communication confirming anything so I reached out, only to find they would be sending one of his employees. I expressed my concern since when I booked he said it would most likely be him shooting he reassured me everything would be fine though.

 

On the wedding day I had no communication from the photographer which would have been nice because I had to confirm with my wedding planner she even showed up. We really wanted sunset photos and there is such a small time frame to get them, our photographers external flash stopped working during this and she was messing with it for at least 15-20 minutes. At that time my husband and I started taking pictures with our phone as to not miss the sunset completely. While my dad ran back to the reception to get his camera. After that she sat down on a bench for another 20 minutes trying to figure out her external flash. For all the money you pay them shouldn't they have a back up. Not to mention we will never be able to get the perfect sunset picture because the moment was missed.

 

This is not a huge deal but then my photographer ended up dancing with my guests on not one but at least 3 songs. I am paying them they should be capturing these moments not dancing

 

I have not received the pictures yet and they might have turned out great so I am waiting to say anything to the photographer who owns the company until then but I just had to vent my frustration.

That is horrible girl. I totally understand your frustrations though and wanting to get it all out. I didn't have any bad experiences with my photographer (got married in DR in April 17, 2015) which I am thankful for because the pictures were so important to me. Don't stress over it yet though. Good idea until waiting until you get the pictures back. Make sure to show some of them when you get them Would love to see them regardless.


Oh and I am learning photography now myself since like a little over a year ago. So hearing this stories helps me learn from others mistakes that's for sure. 

 

Chin up girl.

This is a really bad experience for you. In such memorable events, every arrangement should be in line. During my wedding, I also faced photographer problem. But this problem was sorted out when we booked our wedding function at all  inclusive wedding venue.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
