Our photographer "lost" the reception pics
This morning I had an email from our wedding photographer who we haven't heard from in over a MONTH stating that she has lost the images from our reception. Yup. That's right. They're gone. Mind you, I'm just now hearing from her and it has been 2 months since the wedding and over a month since we emailed her the first time regarding our missing photos. Yes, she sent us a gallery and then promised to send more reception pics. Then she went to Europe. Then she was visiting her boyfriend in Oregon. Now she's at Bonnaroo. And she's just now getting around to telling me that our reception photographs have been missing off of her hard drive. Granted, she did send SOME. She took about 20 pics of our wedding cake. She took pictures of the food. But there are no pictures of me + my husband enjoying ourselves with our friends.
I guess I'm just upset that she's just now getting around to telling us about it. I mean, if she had told us right off the bat that our pictures had been deleted, I would have been upset. But I feel like she's just been avoiding us, and I feel like that is unprofessional. I also feel as though we've been really polite about the entire situation and I feel taken advantage of.
Thankfully, we do have friends who carried their cameras with them throughout the wedding. But they're surely not the images I thought I was getting.
I know that the important thing is that William + I ended up married.
I would love to know what other wedding photographers have to say about the situation.
Any photogs care to weigh in?
All I can say is: Lady, that sucks. Really sucks. But I do stand firm in my belief that all you need is one really good photo.
