Can I ask what are the real implications for a photographer/videographer to bear if he/she for one reason or another cannot deliver a certain portion of a wedding?
Ok, the real case study is this, say you normally take 400 pictures for the night session. 50%/200 pictures are missing wedding banquet portion due to data corruption. Couple wants to sue you for 40k which is the price of the banquet. Is there a case? I was wondering if max is Small Claims Tribunal or something.
Contract says that the reimbursement would be full package refund plus all salvageable photos returned (of coz from client's POV this is still unacceptable).
Sibeh sian, though its not me, this is still a grave reminder of the risks that we have to take (however remote). Have a good mind to change to dual card machines (D7000 for DX, then D800...just a few more months only ), even though it will cost lots.
You know some couples nowadays, I'd deem as "cannot take one" through phone screening. But sometimes they do slip through and over the phone it was all A-OK nice couple blah (or perhaps you are too busy or tired, mind is not clear), you will meet them once probably in every 500 shoots or something, and then you kena murphy's law.
