    Hi everyone, i've been off the site for a while, but just wanted to rant.

    I'm seriously f***ed off with my wedding photographer. We got married on june 5th, and apart from having our wedding photo's which weren't fully finalised (end of july ish) which were transfered to our computer, We still do not have our album, dvd's or extra photo's we asked for.

    He's so rubbish at communicating, arranges to meet us and doesn;t show. i'm seriously thinking about ringing him and giving him a piece of my mind, thing he, he's a friend of my hubby so we dont want to push it too much, but seriously i've had enough. Even his bussiness partner has split from him.

    what do you all think?

    :-(

    Hiya, nice to see you back! :)

    I'm really sorry to hear that your photographer is being so rubbish, and it must be a really difficult situation to be in given that he's your husbands friend.

    Is it him that is actually putting together the album, or is he getting it done by another business? Might be worth asking what the hold up is - whether it's because he needs to finalise the layout, or whether it's a hold up with the album producer instead.

    I guess all you can do is to remind him in a firm but polite way that you would like the rest of your package asap. If there is a hold up that is beyond his control, then he should tell you what it is. To be honest, from what you've said he doesn't sound very organised, and I usually find that people like that need to be sorted out by someone else!!

    I hope it all works out - keep us updated xxx

    I agree with Becky. I understand your frustration, but giving him a 'piece of your mind' won't really solve the issues, especially is the problem lies with someone else. I'd be inclined to let him know that you feel upset and a little let down at not having the agreed package. Ask him if he can give you a definite date and then you will have something to look forward to.

    My friend got married in April and only got her photobook back last night (I was at her house when he delivered it to her). Was worth the wait though :D

    Bloomin rubbish!! I can understand why you feel fed up, before you give him a piece of your mind I would ring ask him when you will get it, then make up some important date you need it buy (a family event or something!) Hopefully then he will pull his finger out?

    If he is ordering from somewhere else it may be there fault but I agree you need this communicating! Ask him if there is a problem with the supplier and suggest you want to use a different one??

    Good luck and keepus posted! Good to have you back

    Hi all, nice to be back, though i fel i have less to chat about now, anywho...

    He finally came round last sunday, he's not himself, and has broken up with his business partner. anyway, he has given us some prints that Hubby orderes, and our wedding dvd's which are lush. i'm so pleased with them, and still get all emotional everytime i see them.

    still waiting on the album, but should get them by the end of next week, fingers crossed. :p

    Ah thank goodness for that! It's a shame you've been messed about so much but at least youve finally got your hands on some pics/DVDS. you must have been beginning to worry that there was a horrendous problem x

    Oh no!! have you paid him? Not that money will ease your stress, but if so tell him you are not prepared to wait until he gets back and you want your money so you can go somewhere else!

    Not much I can say, but sending lots of hugs!

    No, we paid him for the work he did for us on the day, which was great. seens as he did it for mates rates, with 5 weeks notice, was great on the day, and offered us all these extra's we were really happy with him and our photo's are amazing. i'm just soo upset about the whole album thing. for months we've been patient, waiting in when he says he will come round and discuss things with us, or give us some photo's. he says the album will be worth the wait, but i'm so frustrated, part of me doesn't care all that much.

    I went around to his house last night, in a last ditch effort to get teh album and some a3 photo's he printed out for us, but he didn;t have them, the album's still not finished, and his mum has the photo's.

    yet more delays, Grrrrrr

    Oh that's rubbish, I really feel for you. Can you just get the album done by someone else? It's not like you owe him anything after all the rubbish he's put you through! Sounds like you'll be waiting a long time :(

    Big hugs xxx

    Poor you, how annoying. I'd have lost it by now and turned up at his mothers in tears and chaining myself to the railings. Not that i'm a drama queen or anything!

    I kind of lost interest a month ago, and not very upset. i feel that after such a long time rather than 'ooh yay photo's' when i go to show people it will be more like 'oh right, what took u so long' :(

    after me knocking on his door, he rang me today and left a message saying he'd spoken to the album people, and it should be finished next week.
    this is the second album he's had done through this finishing company but the 1st wasn't upto his standards, which is fine, we understood that. the thing is the long delays and little communication. i cancled plans with other people, and told family and stuff, then he never shows.
