Do you have fax cover sheets showing that you sent them?

I'd send a paper copy of the contract with the enlargement section highlighted by certified mail, return receipt. If you have the fax cover sheets, I'd send paper copies of those attached, as well. That way he knows that you can prove he received the contract. THEN, enclose a letter politely but firmly setting a deadline of 30 or 60 days for either completing his obligations under the contract or returning $____ of the money you paid plus copies of the negatives (if you don't have them) so that you can get them done elsewhere. Clearly state that after that 30 days (or 60 days) you will immediately be taking further legal action.

Thankfully, no. I was married in '89, so photographer used film. He was nice enough to send along the proof and the negative in a sealed envelope for me to give to the dress-less guest. He said "I think she might feel better having this herself."

We have gone through all of that. Mind you we were married in 2005, so the whole issue was just dragged out for a long time.

As a follow up to my last post, my mom called him and told him he was basically a scam and ruined our wedding etc. He went on to say that I was spoiled, his most difficult client, and he could tell I had never been inconvenienced! He argued that he gave us our album 3 months after the wedding, but not the enlargements.

Obviously, if you book a service, you expect delivery of the product in a reasonable amount of time. Every time I called he was busy, could not make the appointments etc. and this went on for a year. Then in 2006, my husband's mother died and he later tried to say that's when he was "getting" it all together and I was impossible to contact.

Even after settling with him, you still feel horrible about your wedding day memories being ruined.

We actually had the part that said something like "If anyone knows any reason why this couple should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace" taken out of the service, since I know too many people who have been wanting to object for years!

BTW, I didn't even mention the photography problems at my wedding. Let's just say that one of my friends was an excellent photographer, and his pictures were at least 90% better than those of the "professional". The pro took ONE photo that everyone liked.

So glad this won't happen to me... Mastercard Wedding






You got to love this guy...



This is a true story about a recent
wedding that took place at

Clemson University .



It was in the local newspaper and even
Jay Leno mentioned it.
It was a huge wedding with about 300 guests.



After the wedding, at the reception, the groom got up on stage



with a microphone to talk to the crowd.
He said he wanted to thank
everyone for coming, many from
long distances, to support them
at their wedding.


He especially wanted to thank the bride's and his family



and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a lavish reception.

As a token of his deep appreciation
he said he wanted to give everyone
a special gift just from him.

So taped to the bottom of
everyone's chair, including the wedding party was an envelope.

He said this was his gift to
everyone, and asked them to
open their envelope.

Inside each manila envelope was an 8x10 glossy



of his bride having sex with the best man.

The groom had gotten suspicious
of them weeks earlier and had
hired a private detective to tail
them.

After just standing there, just watching the guests' reactions
for a couple of minutes, he
turned to the best man and
said, 'F---you!' Then he turned
to his bride and said, 'F--- you!'

Then he turned to the
dumbfounded crowd and said,
'I'm outta here.'

He had the marriage annulled
first thing in the morning.

While most people would have canceled the wedding
immediately after finding out
about the affair, this
guy goes through with the
charade, as if nothing were wrong.

His revenge--making the bride's parents pay over $32,000 for a
300-guest wedding and reception, and best of all, trashing the
bride's and best man's reputations
in front of 300 friends and family members.

This guy has balls the size of church bells.

Do you think we might get a MasterCard 'priceless'
commercial out of this?

Elegant wedding reception
for 300 family members and
friends: $32,000.

Wedding photographs commemorating the Occasion: $3,000

Deluxe two-week
honeymoon accommodations in

Maui : $8,500.

The look on everyone's face
when they see the 8x10 glossy
of the bride humping the best man: Priceless.

There are some things money
can't buy, for everything else
there's MASTERCARD

It does for 300 people! If you pay $75 per person for the reception, that's $22,500 right there! So $32,000 for 300 people is probably on the cheap side.

The wedding went fine, reception went fine. We stored the cake in the church's fridge afterwards, wanting to pick it up the next morning. Well, sometime in the interim, some diabetic lady needed some sort of sugar and ate my entire wedding cake by herself (it was a multi-layered monstrosity, I'm surprised the lady survived that episode).

She offered to pay $100, but my mother turned it down. I would have taken her money. I was already in Rome at this point.

When my dad hugged me once we walked down the aisle, he accidentally pulled my veil out of my hair ... my MoH picked it up and held it for the rest of the ceremony.

For the week prior to the wedding, I'd been getting sick with a cough. Don't get on an 8-hour plane ride with a cough ... after the plane ride back to Georgia, I'd manage to REALLY mess myself up. Sinuses, ears, throat ... it was nasty
