@smiley3: Thanks for posting this! I’m actually stressing out about this right now as I have 4-5 photographers I’m in contact with.

I’m pretty sure of which one I want to chose, I’m just nervous about how to “break up” with all the others!!

@smiley3: I’m sure you’re right, but whenever I personally contacted a vendor to let them know we chose someone else I either got a rude response or no response. If I’m going to the trouble to tell someone to close their file on me, I kind of expect at least a small polite recognition like “Thanks for letting me know”. I find no response to be rude and slightly arrogant.

@moderndaisy: I got a rude response from a photog when I told her that I liked her but her work was more expensive than others.

She basically brush me off and said something along the lines of “you get what you pay for and I”m better than them” even though one of the cheaper photogs actually works for national geographic.

All the others have been SO willing to work with me on price, but she was just very dismissive.

Then 3 weeks later she sent an e-mail with new (and cheaper) packages, but after her previous response she left a very sour taste in my mouth.

@smiley3: Wow what crazy timing!! I picked a photog last week (finally) and was too embarassed to send one I had been emailing with a final “no”. I just did. 🙂 Thanks!

It would help if vendors had an evaluation form or comment form to give that feedback through also.  Sometimes it is hard to tell a person face to face you didn’t pick them because of this or that.

@KatNYC2011: You should have replied to that photographer’s email and told her that you weren’t going to hire her because of how rude she was before. That is so ridiculous.
