What are my options regrading a wedding that I photographed?

I’m a photographer. Was contracted 7 years ago to photograph a wedding the following year. Photographed the wedding. Client contracted for 2 albums. After 6 years later, she has not ordered these albums. My contract calls for fees if products aren’t ordered in the first year. Client won’t pay fees and won’t go away.

I am not sure wjat you mean when you say the client will not go away.  If the product was not paid for, it does not have to be provided.  Collection on a contract debt (breach of contract), however must generally occur within 6 years of the contract completion or the Statute of Limitations may have expired.
