Dream photographer kept messing up with the salutation! Should I still hire her?

I think this is a none issue and would not factor into my decision/opinion on her photography skills whatsoever.

I really don’t think this is an issue. You seem to be blowing it way out of proportion.

i think it’s simply an oversight on her part and not really an issue.

Agree with PP. This is a total non-issue. If her artistic work is good then hire her. That’s all that matters.

bunnytea :  I think this is a weird thing to be upset and change vendors over

but youre the one who has to work with her, so if it makes you upset then i guess find another photographer. 

*I loved mine, but i wouldnt expect them to have my name memorized when they have probably talked to hundreds of couples. They usually keep track of events and names through the way it comes in on the website.

People message me at work all the time the wrong name (spelling error) …even though my name is in my email. It happens..

It seems a bit annoying, but you’re not hiring her to address emails.

Wouldn’t really be an issue for me since you are paying for her photography skills.

This is a really odd thing to be upset about honestly. It’s an oversight. It’s not like she’s calling you “Patricia” or another brides name like truly getting you mixed up with someone else.

I would not be bothered by this at all. She probably gets dozens of emails per week.  I’m also wondering why you did an interview AND a Skype chat, and expected her to follow up. You’re the one making the hiring decision, not she. It seems like you’re being really nit picky here so yes I think you’re being a bit unreasonable.

Non issue unless she got your names entirely wrong which she didn’t. 

Don’t email her personal email, that’s not for work that’s personal. How you even got that I wonder?

I used to do wedding invitations as a side business and i would’ve never answered a business email on my personal email. 

Either way minor issues but you sound hesitant therefore I think you should go with another photographer just because of that hesitancy.

bunnytea :  you sound high maintenance AF. you think you’re her only client or she isn’t busy? You’re pissed because she accidentally addressed your husband in a couple emails? Get a grip dude. This has nothing to do with photography. She’s probably answering emails in between I don’t know, editing photos.
