I would really value experienced photographers' input on my situation. I got married early October this year and found a new photographer starting out and LOVED his work and loved how he could make me relax in front of the camera. I loved the sample shots he took for us. I thought if I gave him the contract for my wedding, it would help him out and I would get the style of photography I liked. We negotiated a contract where I would get all of the files, in high resolution and I could print them out myself. i paid $1000 for 7 hours of coverage. The rest of the story unfortunately did not go so well. He ended up being rude to me during the day, interrupting with annoying comments when I was speaking to others and yelling at me in front of the guests to get into shots, when I was greeting them. He ended up stressing me out on this day. I also found out later he had posted rude comments about me on a professional photo forum and found all of his "friends" writing negative things about me without even knowing me! When I emailed him a week later asking me when I could see the a few sample shots, he wrote back a very rude email. I only got a preview when he posted them to his blog. I finally received the photos, much later than expected, and to my surprise, they were extremely small in size and I am having trouble even printing out 3 by 5s! We have emailed him asking him if he has bigger resolution files with no luck. I am at my wit's end about what to do.
