My birthday was January 24th and i had a party the next day, January 25th. All of my friends were there, my cousin DJ'ed, photographer snappin photos (my friends friend is an amateur photog and he agreed to take photos for free against a leopard backdrop i set up), great food and drinks, and an ice cream cake. Sounds like fun, huh? Well it was! The only problem that I'm dealing with right now is the photographer is totally ignoring my attempts to get a hold of him to send me the photos. He's ignoring me and my friend the one who recommended him. What's really odd is he was having a great time doing his thing and when he left he said "Thanks for letting me do this, I'll be sending you the photos!" So, today is the 8th and after numerous attempts to get a hold of him i still have no photos and no replies to my messages (or my friends) The worst part of all of this is he took like 200+ photos and i took none on my camera because obviously i was depending on him to do the photo taking. Some of my friends took a few on their digital cams and that's currently all i have, a total of 13 photos. What else can i do? I told my friend that if she sees him to maybe scare him by talking about me wanting to take him to small claims court or something to maybe coax him into sending me the photos. After all i have written agreement of him taking this photos for me. And as far as a money value i purchased the backdrop solely for him to take pictures on, he ate food and drank alcohol which he only got to do because he was the photos otherwise, he would not have even attended my party. I'm so frustrated over this because i was really excited to have such a thing done for my 23rd bday. Any advice ladies and gents?
