SO MUCH for the fools that said destroy the files and call it a day.

Uh, it was the OP who said that (first post on the other thread). Even gave the couple a deadline for when he'd erase them.

and this couple is back....

Bride and her father stopped by my lawyer's office yesterday morning. They dropped off a disc and a printout. The disc has pictures they want me to edit. The printout gives a pic by pic of what they want.

They are offering pretty much what I would have quoted if they would have come to me directly, but are also asking for a 7-day turnaround which is possible, but as I mentioned to them with the earlier issues, I'm tight on time until roughly the end of October....

My friend's (the lawyer) advice: counter with a raised fee, or get them to drop the deadline. He's basically insisting I never accepted someone else's terms - especially in light of them not accepting mine to begin with. He also points out that under the current agreement, all my obligations with them have been met and am in no way forced to take on any more requests from them. Should I decide to pursue this, I'm opening myself up to more crap from them, with followup requests, etc...

just when you think you're out, they pull you back in....

If all obligations have been met I'd walk away from it, to be honest.

Sign the contract with the father and raise the price to make it worth your while.

It's a tough one and a one week deadline is a bunch of crap.

increase the price by 50%, remove the deadline clause and let them decide. It's your turn to set the demands.

Many thanks for the update and great you finally get your just deserts $$$$$.
I dont think you have anything to worry about with the new request.All your obligations are met and you are still firmly in the driving seat.
To be honest If you are not bothered about doing the edits.Then its up to you if you want to over price the job to a point that they will go elsewhere or pay the price.Either way you wont lose any sleep over it.
Even now its all over peeps still want to give advice OMG even me LOL.

This was a great thread and a great way to highlight that all is not as rosy as it seems in this industry!

Glad to hear that it turned out well for you!! As for the editing, I'm in the "raise your price and set your terms" camp. Either that or walk away. You've have more than enough of their crap.

this was long ago resolved and put behind me...
I did do their editing, we agreed on pricing and that I wouldn't touch anything until late in the year... as I recall, I delivered their edits last November at some point... they never emailed or called while waiting for their edits, and I never heard from anyone after delivering them...

I think I saw the bride - or someone that looks a lot like her - at a Starbucks in March... I looked her way a few times trying to determine if it was her or not, and she gave me a long look when she left, with a bit of a smile... I was there to meet another couple, and definitely didn't want her to be an issue (and wasn't...)

on the anniversary of their wedding, my assistant and I did go out and celebrate it... beer and wings, ad we still call it the worse we've ever been through

my assistant still calls me photoman

Lol, there's always one. I'm reading through that 1st thread again for some entertainment :-p

Glad that you got through it and moved on. I'm also re-reading the thread because there's always something to learn from experiences like that.

With your experience others will learn.
