We had no issues with our photographer, but HUGE issues with the videographer!! He said it'd be done in 2 weeks, even says so in the contract. Then he told us it might take a month cause he used 4 cameras instead of 2, no biggie, we were so busy with moving and such we wouldn't have had time to sit and watch it. But now it's 3 MONTHS later and STILL no DVD!!! My mom has called him several times and he never calls her back. I have him on Facebook (I graduated HS with him) and messaged him several times.... NO RESPONSE!! My mom is good friends with his parents so she eventually broke down and called them just to see if there was another way to get ahold of him! It's SO aggrivating! We paid money up front and would hate for this to turn into a legal issue. We're only supposed to get one DVD out of it, but I feel he owes us a few more for this unproffessional behavior. If it would take longer, that's fine, but CALL US! LET US KNOW! Ugh! So hopefully we hear something from him soon. What a pain

That stinks big time! I hope he gets you the video soon. It sounds like he is clearly in breach of contract so if at he least if he doesn't deliver you should get your money back. If you have a lawyer in the family and he doesn't deliver in the next month or so maybe an official lawyerly letter will get his butt in gear.


My brother in law did ours as a gift and I accepted at the point us accepting the gift I'd get it when I get it. It wasn't something I wanted to pay for so it will be nice to have. He just started working on it so I am hoping it will be a nice Christmas present.

Yeah, it's just getting really annoying!!! I mean at least give us the common courtesy of returning our call! My mom is a school secretary and his kid goes to her school, so I know she'll be seeing him soon!!! :) He can't hide for long!! haha

That's nice that yours was offered as a gift! Won't it be nice to see your ceremony? I remember some of ours, but it'll be nice to see it from the guest's point of view! Will be a great momento! I just hope we get ours! haha

Photographers can be annoying. Ours was amazing and we picked him due to him doing DH's senior pictures and his close relationship with the family. However....we only had one photographer instead of two and he asked to leave soon after all the offical dances were done so he didn't get any good candids (thankfully our families were snapping away and we got a lot of good pics that way) And it look almost 3 months to get the pictures back, I guess he was having problems with where he normally sends his photos to be developed but he ended up printing them off of SNAPFISH. Our family photos look better than his does.....he agreed to retouch the ones we want printed but has not offered any discount or money back. If he were going to use snapfish in the first place we wouldn't have paid him all that $$$. I think one of the reasons people get so upset over photos and videos is because some people don't have a backup plan in case the people screw up and lose their pictures. It kind of bummed us out that he still was charging us the same price for our pictures even though we knew what he was being charged for them because it's right on their site how much the charge! Frustrating but it's ok. I can't believe we're married 3+ months, we moved into our new home...and we just got an 8 week old puppy....which is good birth control, I'm not sure if I'm going to have the patience for children

Stephy! Congrats! That's awesome about the house! How exciting!!! My parents bought a new house Dec of 2007, they're STILL trying to sell their old one! Luckily they're renting it to a family, but they'd still like to get rid of it and just be done with it! Hopefully yours sells soon!

Thanks Brooke, yeah I hope we can sell it too. It is a 2 bedroom so we are hopeful some first time homeowners will want to take advantage of the 09 tax break. It is a really good starter house.

We'll rent it if it comes down to it but we've never done that before so it seems a scary prospect. How have your parents handled it? Did they find good tenants?

My parents are NOT doing it the smart way, but it's working out for them. They're renting to some friends, with no contract. Thankfully the friends are good tenents, pay on time and if the house has to be shown they clean up. But it's scary... and doing business with friends and family is never a good idea! I know you can probably get a legal contract from a relator or lawyer just to safe guard you and the tenant. It sucks though cause my parents still have to go and take care of the yard and anything that goes wrong with the house, just a pain! Hopefully you can just sell it and be done with it!

Hey Stephy!!! Ok, I walked through creating mine again.... at the end of creating your ticker there will be different codes. You need the one for the forum, the one I use is actually already displayed on the last page. Copy and paste it into your Community Profile at the bottom of the page. There should be a "link" or "HTML" button down there, you need to put the code in that box after clicking on it I believe. The picture SHOULD show up there..... I hope this helps! They can be SO frustrating!
