A year after the wedding we paid an additional $1000 to get the negatives of our event. We have one print.
The pictures that we've had a separate lab print are out of focus, and grainy (wrong speed film/bad film?). Some, that we know she took (we posed for them), are missing completely. She was late to the reception and missed the bride and groom's entrance! She got mad at us for her getting lost. As a "professional" you would think she would have done some homework so she would know how to get from the church to the reception location! She dresses completely unprofessionally and we were quite embarrassed.
Just don't do it.
