We are supposed to be doing our engagement shoot this Friday, and I can’t get a hold of my photographer. His voicemail is full and he isn’t returning my email. We’ve booked a weekend trip to go to Ottawa for this, which still be a nice weekend getaway but I’m really annoyed that we made all these plans and now the key piece of the weekend might not happen at all.
The funny thing is he was great when I talked to him on the phone, got quotes and what not, but ever since we’ve confirmed, he’s been a pain to get a hold of! I even had to email him 5 times to accept the transfer for the deposit. There is still 2 days before we leave and hopefully it willl work out, but if not I’m totally dropping this guy and demanding my deposit back.

Yikes – I’d probably be a bit worried as well.
One of the things I love about my photog (besides that she is extremely talented and SUPER nice) is that she is GREAT about communication.
I hope you’re able to get a hold of him soon.

Agreed. This isn’t professional at all. He needs to make sure he’s there for his clients whenever they need him. Yeah totally drop his ass and get a new photographer if he’s still doing this to you. AND get back that deposit. If he says he won’t give it back to you, tell you FI to break his camera equipment! lol hahahah

You have a lot of time before the wedding–I’d hold off on booking him for your day until you know for sure this is a guy you want to work with! Flaky people don’t deserve the business if they’re not going to be professional! Best of luck–hope you get it worked out.

I think you’re looking at it the right way, no matter what you’ll have a great weekend away. But I’m sorry your photographer isn’t responding. I would think twice about booking him for your wedding.

@ qtxmsred that could work! FI is a video editor and dabbles in photography. Which makes him very picky about pictures and composition. It took me showing him 12 photogs before he found one he liked.
