Bummer. She might be able to recommend other photographers- the first one I interviewed was already booked for our day, and she gave me a list of colleagues whose work she thought I might like.

I ended up finding my photographer from another Bee who was married at our venue, so it’s worth checking out the local boards, and see who other Bees have used.

@Styles:  Yep.  We have people book us 18 months in advance sometimes.  You might luck out, but if your date is a summer Saturday do not wait to book your favorite photographer.

I’m sorry. I’m sure you’ll find someone. We had someone that we were dead set on that didn’t happen to work out. We were SO frustrated. Then a few weeks later, on a random search, we found our photographer. She not only offered us more services but she was CHEAPER and just as talented as the original. Sometimes things happen for a reason.

@beachbride1216:  So sorry to hear this! I am sure you will find another photographer you like as much if not more than the one that was booked. When we were looking for photographers, we felt a bit rushed to make a decision because the ones we were considering were getting booked quickly (and they were above our budget) until we found ours. Best part, she was everything we wanted and was within our budget which I thought it was going to be hard considering we live in South Florida.

That is a total bummer. So sorry that happened. I would second the PP’s advice to ask her for recommendations. She may have someone she likes to work with (I know my photographer hires other photogs to second shoot with him all the time) and can recommend someone for you!

I see you live in St. Augustine (or at least the wedding is there). I am in Tampa and could recommend a couple of photographers for you. What style of pictures do you like?
