@DomesticDiva:  For most of us this is the busiest time of the year. Everyone wants their photos and you’re probably not her only client. We never make any sort of firm promises on delivery for this reason. If I were you I’d send a polite email to her saying that you need the photos by a certain date so that you can get your save the dates out.

@DomesticDiva:  That’s REALLY frustrating! My photographer is not good at communicating either. We got an email a week AFTER our pics were ready (they forgot to let us know!), then they went out of town for 2 days (without telling us they’d be away) and didnt hear from them until they got back. You cant tell me they’re ready then fall off the face of the planet, i nearly died! They delived them to me as soon as they were back, and it was a last minute job they hadnt planned on, AND our pics were amazing, so all is forgiven now, but I completely feel your pain.

 

I think if you haven’t emailed her today, I’d call her and just remind her that you want to use them for your STD cards and they need to be in the mail by such-and-such a date, so even if she could send you a few of them to get your cards printed. Sorry, I know how annoying (and maddening!) is is to be “sitting duck” when things need to be done!

ETA – I have the exact same phone-weirdness! It drives FI bonkers! I cant explain it, which is maybe why it drives him nuts, but it makes me so anxious! and I’ve had jobs where I spent ALL DAY on the phone, and even then I had to talk myself into returning a phone call lol

@DomesticDiva:  haha I’m glad to hear I’m not alone in that too, I’ve never met anyone that was the same way 🙂 Glad to hear you got your pics back, and they turned out great!
