Hello all... 'deep sigh' ... well here is my story. I've been engaged for approximately two years now; the reason for the period of time is, we wanted to plan with sufficient time for details to be met. The photography for this event was to my fiance and myself of a great deal of importance. As we took our time last July researching for a photographer that not only me our expectations in regards to quality of work but budget as well. We met a gentleman by the name of Robert who at the time met our criteria quite well! Great personality, good work, and had a videographer available as well. He did our engagement shoot which we loved, a stipulation in our contract stated we would get a disk. The engagement shoot took place early December of 07, quite a time had passed by and we had not received the disk. In February I decided to contact him and get the details as to what happened, three of the five contact numbers were disconnected. When I finally made contact with him he assured me everything was well and that he will get that disk sent out to me as he had stated to my fiance in their prior conversations...( Apparently she had called several times and I was not aware...MY bad shes a real hands on kinda girl) Fast forward 8mo no disk no calls, at this time I just felt extremely hot that how upset I felt that this person in a professional context had just dismissed us as if we did not exist. I again started calling his number and this time all of them were cancelled or suspended by the mobile carrier! This guy doesnt even have landlines for his business. I pick up and decide to show up at his studio and come to find out that he just picked up and left with the following... 1) My Engagement photos 2) My $1200 Deposit 3) Over 10 other couples 'Wedding Photos' 4) 6mo Back rent to his current Land Lord( I said current because he moved from original office we met in) Ladies and Gentlemen I have been left 3wks before my wedding with no photographer... I spoke to the people in the management office of his building and they made me aware that he had left over 10 couples calling and pleading with the office for photos of there wedding. We began to search the net for info with his real name and found out that these are all his aliases and businesses.
