Caribbean Emotions Photography - Scammer!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.

I'm so sorry to hear this :( Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients.

Hi MarieSam, yes we had a contract with him and he said that he would have my pictures edited before I left Punta Cana and then I would have to choose the pictures I liked and he would then print them put them in an album and ship it to me.  I called him the night before we were leaving and he said he was having issues with the internet and that he would email them to me a few days later. It's now 5 months and he is still ignoring my calls, texts and emails.  I have been writing negative reviews everywhere I can and It looks like he blocked me on facebook because I cant go onto his page anymore.

This is such a shame, I am really so sorry this is happening to you :( Well, I would exhaust all sites you can write reviews on -- Wedding Wire, Facebook, Trip Advisor, etc. If you paid by credit card, can you contest the charge since he failed to deliver the product? Also, maybe contact the venue where you got married -- they may have a working relationship with him and letting them know may force his hand since he wants to keep a good relationship with them. It's really so awful when vendors do this to couples, especially when it comes to a day that means so much to them. Sending good thoughts your way that you will somehow get your photos!!!

Yes it really sucks because we will never get back those memories. I have written reviews on trip advisor, facebook, wedding wire and here.  Hopefully people see my reviews and don't make the same mistake I did.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
