Their reply

I know you are not mad but we did mention that we need someone to take pictures & video for us.
You will notice that at a certain point, you don't need to take any video & that's when
you will take pictures for us.

For the tea cerremony, it is important that you take the entire ceremony
that is when we are serving tea to our family members & receiving gifts but in btw
you don't need to take shots when there is a transition of ppl you take only footage
when we are serving tea & receiving gifts. You can do it at different angles.

You take pre-wedding on both sides
then it's game time at my parents home in lasalle
then it's tea ceremony a few shots with family & friends & that's it @ my parents home.

BREAK

Video & Photo of Tea Ceremony at Kyomi then wedding ceremony then
only wedding pictures after wedding ceremony.

BREAK

You Effed yourself in the contract. You did say up to 100 images. Those 100 images could be all formals.
I would hire a second shooter for the main part of the day. Some who can help with the groups.

Managing a shot list like this is going to be difficult at best ..

Rough draft of my reply... some help would be great here

Hi Andrea,

As for pictures we talked about tea ceremony and group shots after the ceremony. We never talked about morning shots and shots at the church. You said your guests will take pictures at the church. My colleagues and I feel you are taking advantage of me. Your expectations of photos from me are way too much. Your already paying less for video and some photos that I charge in my lowest video package. I did you guys a favor when you told me you were on a budget.

In the morning I have 1hour with the groom. That is just enough time to videotape the preparations, shoes, rings etc. There will be no time for photos. At the ceremony I will be running around taking video so there will be no time for photos. Example: if im taking video of the bridal party coming down the aisle I cant just stop and take a picture... there is no time to switch back and forth.

I would rework the contract and tell her you will not work without a signed contract. Eliminate any mention of photos. You can tell her verbally you will attempt to take a few images
when you can but I would not have it in writing.


You really need a contract for this one.

No contract. No obligations. No stress. No need to bother getting out of bed that day. No worries.

Now go plan something fun to do that day instead.

No signed contract. No payment in advance. I agree with highway0691. Run, don't walk away from this or be prepared to perform services for free or worse.

I will call/facetime/Google hangout or face to face and explain in detail.
Don't do it if you can't handle it. But you have to let them know.
Or hire someone as your assistant and cover the photo part
I am sure you will learn a lot from this wedding

You screwed yourself from the beginning by not following proper business practices. Next time, get a contract and clarify everything then get it signed and that's it. If anything needs to be changed then it's done on an amendment to the contract and signed by both parties, including any additional payments, etc.

Or, next time just stop doing photography until you learn how to run a business.
