- Wedding: December 2012
So, I apologize now, this is kind of a long post.
First a littel bit of background: My FI and I are on a strict budget since we are paying for the wedding ourselves. Photography was one of the items that was low on our priority list. If we could afford one we could have one.
As we were planning our wedding we were constantly checking gropuon, specialicious, and other cupon sites to see if we could find deals for anything we would need. During our lookout we found a deal for a disounted engement photoshoot. We purchased it. Scheduling the photoshoot was actually a little bit difficult, but we finally got the date set. After talking to the photographer she seemed very reasonably priced so, I also scheduled a boudoir shoot with her as a surpise to my FI. She also discounted the boudoir shot because she was doing our engagemnt shoot.
Here is where it gets weird: All through our communications she kept pressuring us to make a decision about having her do our wedding photography. After we explained to her our situation, she kept pestering us until finally we ignored her. Eventually she got the picture and stopped asking.
Recently my FI and I went through the budget again and discovered that we could afford a photographer. I contacted this photographer to see if she was available on our date. We set up a consultation today, and I went. I liked the consultation and I liked what she presented. I did not sign the contract right then and there, or give a deposit, because I wanted my FI to look over it first.
However, while I was at this consultation my FI was talking to someone he worked with who also ran his own photography business. His coworker offered us an amazing deal. We would have been fools to turn it down. I need to stress that I had no idea my FI was doing this, I did not learn about this meeting until I apprached him with the first photographers contract.
After discussing it we decided to go with his coworker. I emailed the photogrpaher to let her know what was going on. I tried to let her down as nicely as I could and let her know it was strictly a budgetary choice.
The odd thing: Minutes after I send her the email she post the following on her facebook page
“You should know something about me…..I do anything for my clients until I get screwed over then you get the bare minimum. Its a good idea to keep the photographer happy because just like we can make anyone look expectionally good we can reverse that. I am so sick of being walked on and I am so glad that soon I wont have to deal with the most disrespectful human beings I have ever met ever again!! I am worth way more than you selfish beings take me for.”
Now I am paranoid that she wrote that in reference to us. I am now petrified to have this photographer do my engament and boudoir shoot.
Should I be worried or am I overreacting.
