@littletop:  Honestly I would just move on. Either he is not interested in working with you (perhaps he thinks he can book a higher package for your very popular date), or he is showing that he is difficult to communicate with. Even if something IS going on, unless it’s super extreme circumstances, he should be able to shoot you a quick email to let you know he is still there and will get back to you when he can. The communication failure is a huge red flag.

This sends up red flags for me, and I would move on. It is SO important that he respond to your messages right away, and even if I am out of my office or on-location shooting then I put it in an out-of-office reply so that people know why they haven’t heard back right away. 

I agree that perhaps he either booked the date or is holding out. 

Either way it is unprofessional. I’m so sorry! Hopefully you will still find a great option that fits your budget!

@littletop:  um…

1) don’t use this guy. any vendor that will go off the grid for this long is bad news. period.

2) don’t trust all the reviews you read on the knot and wedding wire, vendors can get poor reviews taken down. ask the girls here, if anything.

@littletop:  unfortunately not all vendors are professional. if you decide to go with a different client, you should always let the other client know that you have since booked their date, and not be a cowered and dodge their communications. so rude.
