What does "B&G" stand for?

Bride and groom
FiL = Father in law

I've always wondered what GWC stood for...

Meeting with them to make sure you have covered your bases, as per your lawyer, is not a futile endeavor.

Sure it is. What bases have not yet been covered? They're in breach of contract and need to pay up if they want their wedding pictures.

No need for meetings, phone calls, emails, broken promises, etc...

$ = Pictures

One way to work this out:
1. Make it clear to the clients that this is a payment issue and not a photography one. If samples are needed, OP could provide them depending upon his schedule.

Under no circumstances should the OP provide samples other than what has been shown already. You cannot give these people any reason to push this dispute any further down the line than it already is. If he provides any samples from the wedding, they will find something they don't like.

He should provide NOTHING until all funds due have been remitted.

and meeting them doesn't make it any worse either. They'll play their games as long as they want to, and I'll keep telling them "no pay, no play"

Gotta love Jack.....

I tend to listen to my lawyer. Listening to your lawyer is not a futile endeavor. Reading comprehension is key.

To be honest, I would prefer to walk away from this right now and never talk to them or look at those images. To me, doing absolutely nothing more with them or the images is the best scenario.

What's stopping you? Not a wise guy question; seriously, what's stopping you from deleting the photos and moving on? In your OP, you said that after 4 weeks, that's exactly what you'd do; we're getting awfully close to that deadline.

Awesome.

Having been through a similar circumstance myself with a dead beat customer, lawyers and small claims court; my opinion is to not waste time with dead beats, lawyers and courts. Especially when the OP says he's fine without the money.

/shrug and my experiences are different. Isn't it great that different situations have different outcomes?

Its more than just about getting the money, its also about protecting yourself. Ignoring the recommendations of your lawyer can be downright irresponsible. So, ignore them if you like, but considering the recommendation of your lawyer as being pointless could bite you in the ass. But hey, ymmv.

I would have said that getting a lawyer at this stage is premature and a waste of money.

The time you need a lawyer is when the other party take legal action against you which in this case I can't imagine them doing
