A bride refused to pay her wedding photographer unless he captured every shot she wanted from a “five-page checklist”.
The woman said she wrote the photographer a checklist to ensure the photos of her special day were perfect.
Taking to Facebook to offer others advice, she told people the photographer shouldn’t get their final payment until all the snaps have been taken.
She wrote: “I’ve been listening to a lot of people who’ve already had their weddings and they said one of their biggest mistakes was not telling the photographer all the shots they wanted or forgetting them.
“So I’m going to use the next five pages to write down each shot detailed in the form of a check list to give to the photographer and he cannot get his final payment until they’ve all been taken.
“From me and the bridal party to our personal photos walking down the aisle, reception etc.”
The woman continued: “These same rules apply for the videographer – I will write down the specific videos I want recorded full length or edited.
“This is a one time thing and I want to make sure I have every picture and video shot I wanted. Hope this helps someone who may have passed this up in their planning process.”
However, her advice didn’t go down well with fellow users, including photographers.
One person commented: “I’m all for making a list for the photographer to have so they can make sure to get all the shots you want – wedding days are crazy and you don’t always think about things that are still super important.
“But threatening not to pay them? Nope, no professional is going to accept that – there’s a reason they require payment in full before the actual wedding.”
Another said: “I’m a wedding photographer and that’s not how it works. I would walk out of there.
“We take a ‘requested photos’ list but sometimes a shot just doesn’t happen the way someone envisions it.”
A third told the woman to “just let the professionals do their job”.
They wrote: “Just let the professionals do their job and don’t hire people you don’t trust.”
