PAID: Amina , 43, and Jahid, 46, await pics
A Mitchells Plain couple say they were shocked to read in the Daily Voice about their wedding photographer scamming other newlyweds out of their money.

Jahid, 46, and Amina Gordon, 43, say like others, they too are still waiting for Tersia Arendse of Eagle Productions to deliver their wedding photos after paying her.

Jahid says they got married in May and paid Tersia R2 100 but six months later, all they have received are excuses.

He says Amina saw an advertisement and they searched online to see if there were any complaints about her and could find none.

He says Tersia came to their home and they booked her and paid a deposit of R840 into her bank account.

The couple’s package included six hours of wedding day coverage, a 30-minute pre-plan session, 200 edited high-resolution pictures on a DVD, a slideshow, a 22-page photobook and an A5 guestbook.

“On the day of the wedding, she was a bit late. She came and took pictures at the house, the mosque, at the hall in Bo-Kaap and in Bantry Bay,” says Jahid.

WANTED: Tersia Arendse

“She then went AWOL for three weeks, and in June she told us we would get the pictures on June 15. We have yet to receive anything. All we have are pictures taken by friends and family.

“She just spins us excuses, blaming the printers, her failing business, she even promised she’d just send the images and we could print it ourselves, but it has been six months already. We want our pictures and a refund so we can print it ourselves,” Jahid adds.

About 30 couples have contacted the Daily Voice to complain about Tersia since the first couple spoke about their trouble with her last month.

Tersia told that couple she would be giving them digital photographs and a refund of R5 000.

Since then, her phone has been off and she hasn’t responded to messages for comment.
