Maybe your photgrapher can recommend someone. WHat did your contract say would happen if they couldn’t make it on the wedding date, who would be their backup? Sorry you are going through this so close to your big day, but atleast you have 5 months yet!

I just booked my photog the other day for my Sept wedding and LOTS and LOTS of photogs were availible. In fact, only one person did not have our date. Don’t worry about it. You will be fine

@Legallyblondiebride: I planned my whole wedding in barely over three months and was able to find all of the appropriate vendors even within our tight budget! Don’t worry, you’ll be fine. Just take a deep breath and carry on. Chin up lady ๐Ÿ™‚

That sounds very stressful, but we just booked our photographer for our June wedding very recently!  You WILL find someone, and hopefully the price will be at least close to what you already had.  That does suck…..but good luck!

I started planning a week ago and found not just one, but TWO photographers that would work for us, also in an area where people are hard to come by. It’s stressful, but it could have been much, much worse.

I’m sorry this is happening, but you’ll get through it, it’ll be okay! Our officiant cancelled a WEEK before our wedding while I was at work and I nearly had a meltdown. I would explain your plight to the other photographers when you contact them, I’m sure they’ll be sympathetic and do their best to help. Do you have a coordinator or wedding planner? Even though mine was technically only a day of coordinator she was still very helpful in helping me find a new one.

oh…we are getting married in june and dont have a photog booked yet….lots of places i have contacted still have june dates open.

You will seriously be fine. Can you extend the search to a city or two outside of where you are? Just do a wider search and you will find someone. Promise!

I’m sorry you are going through this!! ๐Ÿ™ I would be really upset too if a vendor backed out after I had them booked.
