One of my first posts here. I guess it's partly to vent, and partly to ask for suggestions. Here's the scoop:
Met our photographer at a wedding show. Talked to the actual photographer and owner of the company for over 2 hours, left and came back to talk to her for another hour. Did some research, found a few reviews on the company. So we decide to book with her. She was really insightful and friendly and appeared to be the real deal.
Fast forward to engagement photo session. We took our engagement photos at the end of October. We went in for a viewing and weren't really that impressed with the few that were decent to frame from someone who did this professionally. Not a huge deal, we can get over that. However, it took over 2 weeks to get them onto her website for us to look at and decide which ones we wanted to use for our Save The Dates (Which she was supposed to take 2 of our choices and use them for the STD's). Again, not a huge deal. No response to phone calls or emails until beginning of December. We've confirmed again which pictures we wanted to be used. Here it is a month and a half later, and still no STD's. We are getting married in May so STD's really are useless at this point. We still have not received word. She texted back twice randomly at 11:30 PM (Who texts their clients this late!?!?) saying she would call the following day. Has done that twice but does not follow through. We have emailed her several times, called the studio and her cell phone numerous times leaving voice mails. We do not want to be a pest, but for the money we have paid for their services, this customer service SUCKS! Anyone else in a similar predicament? Suggestions? If this is the crappy service we are getting now, we are paranoid what kind of service will be used at our wedding. We also need our guestbook created with photos from our engagement session which will obviously take time as well. Who knows how long that will take to get done? Always interesting to read others posts on here. Hopefully you ladies (and guys) can help us out. Thanks!
