there was the basic shot "cliff hanger" high noon. I made no exposure mistakes. Imagine this location on an average day - much worse.
I also found natural light - the only place. I arrived 1 hour early - no couple - I waited and checked out the situation. They were actually sleeping up above - not at this location.
I never ask for money up front - at least in this case. They were finished and paid me after I had done all requests. She makes it sound like I arrived and asked for cash - totally not true. I was paid after I finished all requests - no doubt.
She was such a problem I did extra editing on her video and gave her all the some 100's of images - no extra charge. She didn't even pay the $36.00 for the release.
She started the clothing thing - about me. I was dressed better - who cares. what about some Women in a Veil and Wedding dress - no excuss about a missed wedding- it's a Renewal. She was dressed weird not me.
Actually to this day I can post 100 + great photo's - as I look at them tonight. No problem with her video - that we know. I remember I sent a copy of her video to the Minister. When I was making the photo's and video I felt good about it.
It just goes to show - Do A-Bay where we have such good lighting and backgrounds.
I wish this board would let me know when there is a complaint. It doesn't seem right to publish total BS without me knowing. In my business i can show the photographs and video. I am not some new or weird photographer.
I have more stories than you can imagine. I have actually spent most of my life shooting weddings.
I guess having a complaint board is just fine. I get most of my weddings via happy couples. Just like in a small town - people talk.
So let me talk too.
here we go - Where are the none posed photo's ? the shadows ? What is the truth ?
why does a girl dress with a veil for a renewal ? Is she somewhat sideways ? She had a wedding some 10 years ago already. No problem for me - really. whatever.
I never collected money from her in advance - it's a lie - flat out .
My shirt and pants where clean, pressed when I arrived. All white cotten in case it's a hot day.
It's true I often bring my Wife. Before we had kids she used to come to the beach all the time. Now even more but you might only see her for a second. I don't recomend the cliff location.
Why is it the photographers fault. The photo's and video look fine to me.
I charged some $400.00 for photography and video. One of my camera bags cost more than that.
It is true that as I looked around - I wanted to avoid making bad images.
Now that she has complained - I'm happy I didn't make any bad images. She couold rub them in my face.
A-Bay is much better for lighting and backgrounds.
