I need an advice on how to deal with an unprofessional photographer. Here is the story –
Last year we got married and hired a professional photographer for two hours. We received our photographs 4 months after our wedding. The pictures were great but we started noticing that some pictures were missing that he took. For example, group pictures of us and all the guests to name one.
We communicated it to the photographer on the same day we received the pictures but his response is as below –
“I do not have any more photos to offer you. After a wedding edit is complete I delete images from my hard drive. I am not contractually required to keep them.”
We further tried to communicate to him to meet and look at options but he replied with follows –
“ Any further correspondence from you will be filed with intent to provide evidence to the authorities if required. I feel threatened by your insistence that we meet when I have told you I have nothing else to offer you.”
He does not take our phone calls and we only communicated to him with emails. When we first met this photographer he represented himself as a member of AIPP too but he is in fact not a member (we checked using the AIPP web search).
So Rioters, what are my options to purse this matter or am I doomed and have to leave with the consequences?
