Windsor Wedding Photographer Worries About a Disturbing Trend!!

I have heard some scary stories lately about bridal couples being stiffed by so-called professional photographers.  Apparently, there’s a limo driver who carries a list of photographers for last minute work because no one has shown up to honour the contract. At first I didn’t believe the story one-hundred percent but I just received an e-mail from a bride who was frantic to find a photographer.  Since it is so late in the year I was unable to accommodate her but referred a few other professionals.  Hope she ended up finding someone.

Here is her note to me:

We are having our wedding in Windsor  in June of this year.  We have run into a major snag with the photographer that we originally hired in that she hasn’t answered any questions or emails or calls that I have made (which has made me in a bit of a panic). I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much. A.R.

And just this past week I booked a wedding in some similar circumstance in which the photographer would not respond to calls & had no e-mail address.  The couple decided to forfeit their deposit and hire me.   Anyhoo, for all the couples out there…..please be aware.  Know who you are hiring………. someone who is a known professional, has quality work, is reliable & has references.  Get their phone numbers, addresses, e-mail contact info so you will know where to find them.

Whoever your choice make it informed!!!!!

    Wow! What a tough position to be put into! Unfortunately, there are some that bring down the rest of the professional community. It’s a shame, but it’s great that you’re willing to step up and help!

    HERE’S A DISTURBING TREND..PEOPLE ARE BOOKING AMERICAN LIMOS TO DO THEIR WEDDING IN CANADA..THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE THEY CANNOT LEGALLY WORK IN CANADA, INSURANCE ISSUES, CROSSING THE BORDER, TAKING WORK AWAY FROM CANADIANS, VEHICLE SAFETY ISSUES AND SO ON..I HATE TO SEE A BRIDE LEFT STANDING ON THE PORCH WAITING FOR A LIMO THAT IS NOT GOING TO SHOW UP AND THEN I GET THE FRANTIC PHONE CALL LOOKING FOR A LIMO AT THE LAST SECOND….NOT GOOD !!
