Is it possible your emails are being caught in a spam filter? Did you try calling as a first resort?

“communicating with for quite some time”

Maybe they didn’t get around to e-mailing you, that they contracted with someone else on your date, because you hadn’t actually book the date yet?

I know with my daughters’ venues, they accepted an oral committment from us, and issued a contract for that date. We had to return the signed contract and a deposit check of certain percentage of the projected total, within 10 days, or they released the date.

Two photographers just disappeared on me out of the blue (first one, then I found a second, then they disappeared too). The last conversations I had with each of then were about figuring out a deposit and signing a contract. That was months ago. Some people are just completely unprofessional.

trinibride0417:  Have you tried to send a follow up email? This is the reason I actually try to not even LOOK at emails unless I’m at my desk. If I’m out at a shoot/wedding (or as simple as at the grocery) and my email dings I try not to look at it because if I do it’s marked as read and no longer highlighted….I get so many emails each day it’s very easy for things to get lost in the shuffle. I’ve also been having a major issue (which I still can’t figure out how to fix?) with my email chaining stuff together if it feels it’s similar. On a couple of occasions I’ve pulled up an email chain to follow up with someone and seen an email from someone else in the chain….and I didn’t put it there!!

trinibride0417:  My photographer was notoriously bad at responding to emails. I sent two with no response about a month before the wedding and when I finally called, he picked up immediately and we got it all settled.
