actually the technician the photographer works with determined that it may take 4 months to recover them. there's no guarantee that it would actually work though and it's extremely expensive.

1. always makes copies and backups 2. this is one of the reason why digital cameras are worse than classic film. pics on film can only be lost if the film is exposed to light before being developed or if you lose the role of film. 3. try inventing a hybrid digital+film camera
#69 1. As someone already said, kind of hard to make CDs and Backups if the card was corrupt prior to computer access. 2. It's not like the cards corrupt right and left, it's probably just as likely that a role of film will be exposed to light, and digital cameras make taking photos much cheaper. I can snap off seven photos in a row and pick the best one, using traditional film, my options are more limited and costly, which leads to fewer oppertunities to get the crowning shot, especially at events. 3. Looking at #1, perhaps you should build a time machine as a precaution, so you can warn people that their card is going to corrupt and they should buy a new one. Awesome.
he'd better just send the memory card to data recovery center or something like that, doing it himself might just fuck up the last glimpse of chance of recovering the photos. If it's physcially corrupted, then your life sucks. Print the damn photos out if anybody else is having a wedding.
I say this as an electrical engineer: don't accept your photographer's statement without further explanation. There is no reason why it should take 4 months to recover the files. For hard drives - which have mechanical parts and a sealed to protect them from air impurities - fine recovery can be a complicated technical process. However a Flash card contains only chips, no moving parts. Tell your photographer to use a different recovery service.
Not engagement *party* photos; photos to go in the engagement announcement. It's not an uncommon thing, people. Many couples do engagement announcements if they plan to wait awhile before getting married, or they use them as a save-the-date type announcement before the wedding details like location and time are hashed out. Mr. Doe and I had some done for grandparents and whatnot, but we just had a friend hit the button since Mr. Doe's a photographer by trade.

1. I can spot two grammer errors in your post. 2. So what if he's been a photographer for 8 years? 3. Who gets photos of their engagement taken? 4. Have you got the receipt?
There's a lower standard for grammar and spelling in the comments than the actual fml, so why care about grammar mistakes in a post? And I marked YDI specifically because I doubt the intelligence of the OP when such basic grammar mistakes are made. And you get engagement photos taken by a professional with an arrangement, not during any one time event like your wedding, so you could just go a second time?
