    So the fault might lie with the wedding planner or the original photographer?

    It seems the original photographer didnt vet thru his/her recommendations, thus entrusting an important job to a Guy/Gal With Camera (GWC), hence resulting in this uneventful situation.

    Haiz... Feeling sad for for your friends.

    Now the latest just in:
    The photographer was hired by the wedding planner for tea ceremony but not dinner. But on the eve of wedding, couple decided to have the photographer's service to complement the videographer. The photographer declined the dinner job as he was committed to other projects and hence recommended another stand-in photographer. That's why there was a separate price.

    I'm standing on the turf of "customer" and wonder why pay so much to get so little. We (relatives) were asking what happened? But I guess what's done is done.
    Woah...u does sound pretty agitated to be 89 though. anyway, i dun see an issue here. the decision to hire the lady photographer was based on ur friends' judgement. And if blames are to be put on the photographer, ur friends will need to shoulder half of it themselves unless they are seriously being misled.

    furthermore $6.5k is an amazing sum to pay for such services and i do have my doubts on the assignment. I highly suspect the lady photographer (if she exist) is doing it for free or just for a token.

    Guess there was an article overseas that the couple sued the photographer for the quality of work produce and.. win the case?

    What done is done but maybe can still do something.. not in the line of retaking the pictures of coz..

    My guess is it is the cost of the wedding planner! The money goes to the planner and not the poor girl. She was probably paid 6.5 per hour for using her camera and time

    That's the problem with fickle minded couples nowadays. One moment want. Next moment don't want. Wedding planner got big headache changing theme and changing layout and we old folks only mumble in the background. What to do? Smart Alec here also cannot do anything cos not my son leh.
