uggg...maybe i should not reply to things when i haven't read all 11 pages...uggg...11 pages....I want to sue all of you now!.....
Strange, how does it show 11 pages for you?  It only shows 4 pages for me.   ???

Regardless of pages, it is a loooong thread.  I'm a little surprised that it is still on the leader board after all this time.  Just goes to show how attracted most people are to soap operas vs. geeky tech shows.   ;)
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

Your display settings are probably different.  Maybe 50 posts per page versus 15...

I don't think this is a soap opera... feels more like a public stoning.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

Haha  I've been reading this thread almost everyday to check up on new posts.  I've really enjoyed this... learned alot at the expense of the OP.  It's great that the OP actually posted this because it helps everyone really.  This kind of situation applies to literally everyone.  You don't have to shoot weddings, primary or secondary shooter, it's all relevant to daily shooting gigs.  It's good to know that the world still contains people with better than average code of ethics!!  11 pages later.. have to say thanks!

I'm happy to inform you all that the "soap" ended very well.
The photographer told me that I did the right thing calling him to talk about the bride approached me asking for my images and he's still calling me for other jobs.
Lesson learnt, I feel happy and relieved.

Apologies for my earlier comments, I was wrong to assume you wouldn't do the right thing.

Well, did you get any MONEY for your shots in the end?
Sounds like you did the right thing by both the pro and the bride, did the pro do the right thing by you?

Yup, thanks for the update and glad it worked out! 

But Neuro, you can't apologize dude, this is the interweb; you're not allowed to be reasonable.  Ever.  For any reason.   :o

That's great, Chris! It couldn't have been easy getting blasted for days on this thread. Many have learned from your experience.
