- Edit My Images
Apologies - I'm deleting this thread as I've just received a solicitor's letter.
Tata, and farewell
Tata, and farewell
Getting advice from other people.. Be careful if she is on a wedding facebook group or somehting as you could be getting a bad name (maybe though no fault of your own) before you start... You need to placate her...and quick IMHOSo I'm relatively new to wedding photography and I shot my second wedding a few weeks ago. The bride isn't happy with the images, but in 24 hours she's gone from not knowing that photographers use Photoshop to being a reportage critic.
Not sure what the AOP is but "in the event of Total Photographic Failure" does seem a bit grey...My question isn't about the quality of my images, it's more about a term used in the standard T&Cs the AOP provides.
I presume you ahvent given her the images before paying? because that would be silly .........if she doesnt want to pay then she doesnt get the pics... I presume the same T&Cs your using have a no refundIt states "in the event of Total Photographic Failure". She's claiming that's what's happened. It's more a case of she just doesn't like the images or doesn't want to pay.
My take would be anything that makes them unusable......To my mind, Total Photographic Failure relates to the operation of the equipment, for example if I'd arrived home and the memory cards had wiped.
I'm impressed by your commitment, i seen the first line and thought "na your alright"That's who I thought they were, but there is nothing in their T&C's that mention "Total Photographic Failure". And I read all four different sets: England & Wales: Scotland; Northern Ireland, and Eire.
Surely it must take a lot more than that? I mean on average a wedding photographer must be delivering 300,400,500+ images across the day, even if the bride doesn’t like 10% of them, that is quite harsh to disregard the rest of the photographs?Only take s a few bad images in the album to be able to take a tog to court and win a CCJ against him.
My daughter did exactly that.
Unfortunately the op deleted his original post..before everyone could get to read it.. but from what I can gather this was his second wedding as he has just started doing weddings and the bride was unhappy with the photos although the guy claimed there was nothing wrong with them.. but now the bride has all of a sudden become an expert in reportage photography and is unhappy with the photos and was claiming photographic failure.. think that was the just of it and he was on here looking for advice on what constitutes photographic failure..this was his first post here and I have my doubts as to whether he will now be returning..perhaps the bride was expecting a reportage type coverage and she has ended up with fine art instead..who knows only the original poster can now enlighten our inquisitive minds...It would be interesting to get more details.
I doubt if most brides could tell the difference. If they could, they are likely to know a decent wedding tog anyway....perhaps the bride was expecting a reportage type coverage and she has ended up with fine art instead..who knows only the original poster can now enlighten our inquisitive minds...

And the reason you're no good without experience, and you can't get experience without a portfolio.Otherwise nothing else really is acceptable. You should know what you are doing, and be capable and in control of any situation.
is complete nonsense.If your portfolio is that barren and lacklustre that you need to give away a wedding package, then you are really not ready to be a wedding photographer.
… I also years ago undertook some lower paid wedding photography, definitely not giving it away, just people requesting discounts, and it's the same with these budget brides being budget in every way, cheap location, low end guests not dressed smartly, cheap décor etc. I mean I do my best, work with what I have, and they were always happy, but they were never images I could use for my portfolio.
