Should I pay one anyway?
Posted 11 February 2004 - 01:07 AM
He has sent us a letter outlining the min number of photos garanteed, the price of the photos plus the album, the extras we decided upon and it has the date of our wedding on it and he has hand signed it, so it is considered a legal contract by him to do our wedding.
Should I just leave it as it is, or should I pay a deposit anyway. He told us we don't pay for it until we get it, kind of a 100% garantee of the money back garantee, ie. don't like it, don't pay. When we come back from the honeymoon he delivers our pics and negs to our house (though the pics are digital, so it will be a CD and letter saying we have copyright). We pay for the pics only then (about 60% of the price). At the same time we sit down and design the layout of our digital album, he does this on a special screen that is the same size as the album pages, so we really know what it will look like. He than goes away, prints up the album pages (we are having about 20ish). Then about a week later he delivers the album, and we pay that part then.
He did say he has had a very few couples who have payed small amounts over time before the wedding, so it is less to pay when you get back from honeymoon. But he only puts it into his bank account, so it sits there earning him interest, meanwhile I could put it into my trust fund account and it could earn us alot of interest. (I will inherit $13400 when I get married from my mother's estate, pretty good since there was about $50 in there when she died)

With alot of places if you cancel you lose your deposit. This is the way it is with our DJ (okay huge difference in price), he's basically told us not to pay him before hand and just to give him the money on the day. this is basically to cover us if we cancel as we do not lose any money. I would definitely check it out beforehand!!

It would be terrible if he turned around in a few months time and cancelled on you and he doesn't refund the money. Not saying that will happen, just looking at it from another POV.

I think you should do whatever makes you feel more comfortable because it is your wedding and at the end of the day you need to feel like everything is coming nicely into place.
If it were me I would pay a small deposit for my own piece of mind that I have secured the photographer.
I hope this helps.
We are also having digital photography and I am very excited to see the end results. We had our pre wedding photo shoot in December and they were awesome. I have the proofs and I look at them all the time!!!
