Brides and grooms put a lot of trust in their wedding vendors. Especially in their photographer. Consider that long after the last crumb of cake has been eaten and the flowers are dead, the photos will still be around. Whether those pictures are displayed on the coffee table or hidden in the back of the bedroom closet, they are here to stay.
I came across a relatively new site called Pictage the other day which may take the gamble out of wedding photography. I mean, no matter how trustworthy a photog seems, you never can tell if he or she will snap shots of you slurping away at the afterparty beer bong. Pictage boasts not only a largish directory of quality participating photographers (with samples and reviews from real brides), but also a guarantee.
Pictage’s ‘Happy Bride Guarantee‘ states that if couples do not like the photos their chosen photographer has taken, they will work with them to obtain a full refund. Yes, that’s right. Full. Refunds. Amazing, no? How does it work? Apparently, brides- and grooms-to-be pay the photographers through Pictage, either in full or in installments. Weird, but not unheard of.
If nothing else, Pictage looks like a great way to find the perfect wedding photographer.
