I am new and I just wanted to vent about a recent frustration. I also want some advice about whether or not I did the right thing to drop her and start fresh.
I contacted a fairly young but popular engagement photographer in my area. She is actually friends with a few people who graduated with me and I thought that she would be an excellent choice. When I contacted her, I explicitly said that I needed a weekend date because my fiance works and lives 2 hours away. The only date she had was May 24th. It was a bit far, but I knew she was popular and decided to book with her anyways. I said “I have checked with my fiance and that date works fine. Look forward to shooting with you!” She said that she would put it on the calendar and that was that. I thought we were all set.
Fastforward to today, two weeks after that message, and she claims that she never heard from us and decided to book another inquiry. What? I told you it was fine. I just don’t understand. I feel that it wasn’t professional for her to hurry to book another inquiry when she never asked us for updates. Anyways, I know things like this happen in life but was I sensible to not book with her? I am currently scurrying to find a new photographer and could not be more stressed. It is wedding season for sure and most of the photographers are booked on the weekends.
I just wanted to vent a bit.
Thanks for listening!
