Wedding Photog Sued for Sucking

Actually, he was sued for breach of contract AND producing craptastic work. Apparently he misrepresented his skill set, didn’t bring an assistant, and generally dogged the whole thing. I would have guessed that not living up to the contract as far as showing up with agreed up staff etc would be easy to prove in court. The interesting thing, however, is that the actual quality of the photos was used as evidence. Read the full story here.

There are several reasons I don’t do weddings, and this is one of them. Screwing up what will hopefully be the one and only wedding day for the client is a lot of weight to carry. At this point in my career I don’t have the experience or expertise to make the attempt. In most cases, when faced with a new shooting situation that I haven’t covered before, I generally take on the challenge, do the research and take my best shot…while being up front with the client about my experience level. But weddings? There are no do-overs and the whole bridezilla thing scares the crap out of me. I’ll leave that to the wedding professionals.
