If you were contracted to be the exclusive photographer for the event, that doesnt mean that no one else can take photographs, it just means she cant contract with another photograher to take photos.

Was this a CONTRACTED 3rd party invited by the bride to provide photo coverage or just a friend who was asked to furnish some photography?

I have to say you have been very cryptic with the info you have posted here.

I have to agree. The OP has never spelled out the issue, just hinted and provided occasional fractional glimpses. It would be good to know what exactly is the problem.


David.
Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.

Guys, I appreciate the help and concern. Unfortunately, I am not comfortable discussing the specifics publicly as this situation has turned into one with attorneys involved. If you are direly interested in the specifics, you can reach me another way.

Simply stating whether or not another photographer was contracted or not is not information that you should have an issue providing.

You could have very easily started this thread with (providing this was the case as your being secretive isn't helping outside understanding of the situation)... I was contracted to shoot a wedding by a bride. My contract states that I should be the only contracted photographer however the bride subsequently contracted someone else as well. I'm therefore cancelling the contract as she is in breach. Any thoughts on the best way of communicating this to her?

As others have pointed out if your contract is watertight it should just be a matter of referring to the relevant clause and advising her of the cancellation. Apply the KISS principle and don't create additional complications that need not be created.

My contract is watertight. I simply asked for some verbiage on a cancellation as I have never had to do one. I'm not sure why there's so much interest in the specifics. I know she breached, she knows she breached. All I need was some wording.

Problem has been solved.

You can't understand why why people are concerned with specifics? As the phrase goes, the devil is in the details.

Well, I'm not sure about it being watertight - I think my own contract is pretty decent, it's one page long, straight forward, and has evolved over a number of years of experience, mostly good, tweaked as necessary. I've yet seek legal recourse, fortunately. Apparently there was something your bride either overlooked or didn't understand which then resulted in the so-called breach. It's entirely possible she was a poor client, completely responsible for this mess.

The reason we wanted specifics was because you were asking for a written response to a vague and cryptic situation, with little explanation. How could we be
constructively helpful, in a way that wouldn't aggravate the situation even more, with so little information? If you come here asking for sound advice, you have to provide adequate background.

You say the problem is solved. In other words you escalated to an attorney, to your own satisfaction and consider it resolved. If the attorney just inflames the situation, or she still misses the point, then there has yet to be a resolution. I hope I'm wrong.
