I wouldn’t worry about him being too ill to do your wedding – assuming your date is correct and it is a year away. He could have food poisoning, other illness, hurt himself, surgery etc. Just because he’s sick now doesn’t mean he will be a year from now.

That being said, I’d just send a simple e-mail, “Hope you’re feeling much better! I’d love to talk engagement pictures as soon as you can. Please just let me know so I can schedule around them.”

Even if it is more serious he will have to tell you well in advance and return your deposit. He could be very sick NOW and be perfectly fine for the wedding which is over a year away.

Don’t stress

Worse comes to worse get your deposit back, hire a good but much cheaper photographer. Most couples find their watch and treasure their wedding video far more in the long run and there tend to be few pictures that they REALLY needed.

 

Do you want 20 pics of the wedding party together, then paired off or 2 really good pics?

Do you want 20 pics of you as a couple or a few great ones, one of which you can have blown up and framed.

Few family pics and a few candids and you are golden!

Just making lemonaid and passing down the same advice countless brides gave me “wish I spent more on the videographer and less on the photographer”

@EncoreBridetoBe:  I would be blunt but polite.  Ask him if he is currently covering his gigs or is using a sub.  Also ask him what his thoughts are regarding your wedding that is a yr out.  Fish for more information.
