Rila Stone hired me to shoot a wedding on 6/31/18 and did not pay me. I personally emailed back and forth with Jennifer Roberts (manager) up until she stopped responding to my emails demanding payment. The company will not return my phone calls either. I know that the videographer they hired also hasn’t been paid.
They hired me off of Craigslist, saying that for $50 an hour I was to shoot the wedding, then upload the images to Dropbox, and they would take care of the editing. I signed a contract that said I would be paid within 20 days of photo delivery, that has not happened yet.
After doing research online, I have discovered Rila Stone has a track record of not paying their vendors, sometimes not delivering the photos or videos to their clients, and apparently dodges lawsuits by moving the business to other states, changing the business name, and not having a REAL address. This is very frustrating to me.
If anyone has a similar experience with this company please contact me. I’m willing to file a class action lawsuit. Instagram: @tieitupphotos
