Photo is very important in a special occasion. IT CAPTURED THE MOMENT. But what if the photographer you hired for your weeding is late? This happen to one of my friend, but he is the photographer. So he get suspended for a week from work because of that incident.lol. what about you mylotters what if you were the couple what will you do? Will you sue him?

Maybe you can talk to the photographer for a refund, either full or partial. How late was the photographer during the wedding. This could be pretty upsetting as a wedding is a once in a lifetime moment. Don't sue him just yet, try talking to him and ask a refund for all the stress he gave. If he doesn't or is not apologetic about it then you can ask for legal advice.

the photographer arrived on the last part of the ceremony...isn't this upsetting? if i were the couple i will really get angry with the photographer but not to the point that i will sue him.. on the other hand your right if he is apologetic about what happen then maybe it will be okay. anyway its an accident that for sure he doesn't want also to happened.

I think moonchild is right. You only sue as a last resort. He'd probably try and make it up to you. Happy customers are important.

It is terrible for a wedding photographer to be late to the wedding. It is just a disaster for a couple. But no matter what, trying to solve the problem is the first thing they have to do. After that, they can do whatever they like to the photographer. If I had this experience, at first I would ask my friend who is interested in photography to take photos for us anyway. It is better than no photos taken at all. I love China

I think this is really not a funny thing to happen! He is suppose to capture all the moments that has taken place in the event! I think his company should have a back up plan, a back up photographer that they can send to be with the couple in the event if the original one is not yet in. I think when signing up for services, photo and video companies give contracts to their clients, so that i think is legally binding. A client will have the choice to chase them for the "damages" and may even opt not to pay but be paid instead. This is a serious matter and if this happens to me, i will be taking this seriously and will be dealing with it legally.
