Did you sign an actual written contract with her or was it verbal?  Can you ask her if she has back-up plans if she is unable to attend your wedding (for whatever reason)?  Can she recommend anyone?

If you signed a contract and she has a backup photographer in case of emergencies, you’re probably going to be alright (since you’ve got someone to cover your wedding). If not, it might be a good idea to see if you can find somebody else. Ask this photographer if she has anyone she can suggest as a backup (and if she’s willing to ask them to cover for her, just in case). If that doesn’t work, you can try emailing other photographers. Also, ask family members and friends if they know of anyone who would be willing and able to help out. Good luck, and I hope your photographer makes a full recovery by your wedding!

I agree with the other bees – check your contract to see if she has to provide a back up photographer. 

I’d also call her and tell her you want to go over a few last minute things and also talk to her about her health.  Explain you are very concerned she may not be well for your wedding and ask her what her plan is in the event she isn’t well.

Good luck!

Ugh, that’s annoying.

Like everyone said, try to get some info out of her regarding a backup.

I would assume she can’t do the wedding, and simultaneously try to find another photographer to have on call if she can’t provide a backup. Also assume the deposit is gone for now, but try to get it out of her after the wedding.
