Word of caution people, not all photogs are nice and charming.

I've worked with this wedding photog for the last 8months as 2nd shooter, shooting about 5-6 weddings, and i booked a wedding with him last summer for a close family friend of mine.

So we book wedding together and he takes £250 booking fee.

fast forward to tonight. phone rings, its the brides mother, the bride was talking to a fellow work colleage and was talking about weddings and the name of the photographer who i work for came up. The photographer photographed the wedding of the work collegue, he got paid and pissed off without deliverng wedding photos. the couple are trying to find him, to take him to court over the photos he never delivered.

Plus me not hearing from him for 3months, after trying to contact him, I've got round to the idea of saying goodbye to the £250 booking fee on the wedding, as I'm left to shoot the wedding (I have no problems shooting the wedding, but its just principle)
So I have had to reasure the bride that the other photog will not be at the wedding and that everything will be fine, as I'm losing out, money wise and a 2nd shooter. I have had to hire in another photog i know from on POTN when we shot for ASIPHOTO.

Moral of the story, trust no one !

yes you should be cautious, but I'm not sure I agree with "trust no one" if we didn't trust people, and if people didn't trust us, would be a horrible world to live in I'm afraid.
