I’m not big on confrontation, so watching this episode of A Current Affair in which angry couples confront an alleged deadbeat wedding photographer was rather tough. However, it really bugs me on a very personal level when wedding photographers treat their customers badly.
The episode itself is almost 15 minutes long and it gets crazier and crazier by the minute. The photographer allegedly left clients waiting over a year for their photos, and when confronted threatens to delete the couples’ photos forever and sue them.
At one point, he uses the excuse that he’s a one-man operation and has to do everything himself, which is a huge copout.
Ultimately, I’m not sure how I feel about this kind of ambush-style journalism, but it really seems like this guy had it coming. Either way, it’s a nice reminder that if you go into business, you should be ready to treat your customers the way they deserve to be treated.
