I hate when fauxtographers shoot freaking weddings! That is the worst beyond worst type of fauxtographers. Ugh! I’m sorry, but the client wanted photos worth $150.. I’m sure the bride could have gotten her sister or cousin to take the pics with her camera phone and gotten better shots. To the OP: Unfortunately, you are paying for the time of the photographer. The photographer spent X amount of hours at your wedding so should be compensated as such. If I was you, I would pay the full balance of $150 (since that was what was agreed upon) and express your displeasure to the photographer so that hopefully they do not attempt another wedding again.
