The recent New York drama around some wedding photographer’s gone bankrupt, leaving many couples left in the dark with their wedding photo’s and albums, is so concerning.
I’m happy to see that the Attorney General of NYC is following up on the case, and has issued the following great advice for couples about hiring a wedding photographer.
1. Insist the company identify the photographer who will be at your wedding, and make sure they are listed on the contract you sign
2. Check at least 3 references for weddings that took place within the last 3 months
3. Never pre-pay in full
4. Discuss and decide on due dates for each task and make sure the contract contains that information (ie, proofs are ready for you to view by a certain date)
5. Check to see if the vendor belongs to a wedding photographer’s association
