I am getting married the same day as you and am trying to contact all my vendors for a final check-in… if I were you, I would be calling every day until I got a hold of him!

well you did sign a contract with him so he needs to uphold his end… i would try calling him. some people dont check their email daily. leave a message and say you need to speak with him asap as the wedding in in only 2 weeks.

Email him again just saying that you’d like to confirm that everything is alright and when to expect him to arrive for the wedding day. Then wait a couple days and contact him again. Do you have a phone number for him? I’d try phoning him if he persists in ignoring you.

I agree you just need to keep emailing and calling him.  Be very clear that you want confirmation from him and need to discuss details.

Maybe he thought you were informing him of the details and he didn’t feel the need to respond.  Try calling him or e-mailing him to ask him if he received your previous e-mail.

This is the busiest wedding month of the year – he is probably just swamped. I would email him again. Also, this close to your date, you may not be able to get out of the albums. Don’t be surprised if he tells you that, especially if it is in your contract. THose aren’t outrageous prices for the albums, either – the really nice leather lay-flat albums (the professional ones, not the cheap adorama ones) WHOLESALE for $700+ each. When you factor in the time he will spend laying them out and contacting you back and forth about what pics, what materials, etc etc they should cost that much. (But I agree it is still amazingly expensive – we couldn’t afford it)

I’m getting married in Albany too – just curious; where are you getting married, and if you want to share, who is your photographer? My post is totally not helpful, but I am just curious:)
