Hi

 

This is my first post on the forum, and hoping you guys can help.

 

In 2007 I got married to my lovely wife, and we had all the usual wedding photos taken (600 I believe).

 

At the time we did not have a lot of money so just had an album off the photographer. He said if we wanted the wedding disc it would cost another £300.

 

We thought we'd save up for it, or have the money to buy it some time later.

 

Anyway the photographer went out of business, but we managed to get his mobile number if we needed to get in touch. At the time he said he would not be changing the number.

 

Some time later we now have the funds to buy the wedding disc, but the photographer has disappeared, and the phone number no longer works.

 

We have tried to track him down, asked other photographers, used online people searches, etc but no luck.

 

Does anyone have any ideas how we could find him? I believe we should have some rights but not sure what we can try?

 

Any help is much appreciated.

 

Jason

Hello and welcome to CAG.

 

I think the guys on the General Consumer Issues forum should be able to help you, so I'll move your thread there. There will be a short term redirect from this forum for you.

He may no longer be trading or may not even be around now I can only think that you could try ringing people with the same name in the local area to see if he is related but thats a long shot. TBH 5 years after the event and no longer trading he may well have disposed of all his old photos anyway.

I've used them before and its "no find no fee". The service is called findermonkey and you can search on Google as I can't include the link on this response.

 

Good luck

Thanks. I have tried called a few other people with the same name already.

 

Findermonkey sounds like an idea, even though I do begrudge paying £100 for it, however, I can maybe get it knocked off the price of the wedding disc if they find him

If they find him he may not still have the wedding disc especially if he isnt trading anymore so be prepared to say goodbye to your 100.00, also I cant see even if he has still got ot that he would knock 100.00 off the cost of the disc, I would have thought that if he has changed his number he dosnt really want to be contacted by his ex customers. Why not wait for your 10th anninversary and get some special photos done then rather than chase after this guy. As another thought though you could ask the local paper if they could run a story saying you are trying to track him down they might go for it.

Hi

 

I would have to air caution as assisted blonde has mentioned as they are no longer trading and have not traded for some years you may end up wasting £100 doing a search to find them only to be let down as they may not have your photos stored any longer.

 

This is just my opinion but is entirely up to you what course your take.
