    I would call them up to see what is going on.  As long as you’re writing a check it doesn’t seem liek there would be any harm in just sending now.

    Call… this is when you need to determine what type of service you will receive. If they don’t get back to you – ditch them. At least – that is my rule.

    Yeah, I would call/email again IMMEDIATELY. I’m big on communication, and a vendor that would have called/emailed after 3 days.

    Yes, call. It is very  possible that your email got caught up in a spam filter or something.

    2 weddings in 1 weekend is a LOT of work! So if they don’t reply right away, I’m sure they’ll do their best to contact you.

    I’d send another email just to be sure (sometimes emails do get sent to spam, randomly). Wierd that the price isn’t in the contract. What does the contract say?

    Ooops! I voted wait but I didn’t mean to. I think you should call/email now. Why wait and drive yourself crazy?

    I’ve had emails randomly go into spam, even though its an ongoing conversation. Usually it happens because the email gets long, so a bigger file, & the email system thinks its spam.

    There’s probably something in the details that are wrong, she’ll fix it & get you a new one. Was it the exact package you wanted, or were you changing anything? Mistakes happen & she’s probably fixing it & then double checking the rest of the contract just to be sure everything’s right. I would keep the one you were sent & compare it to the new one & make sure that’s what you’re wanting. Once you sign a contract, what’s written is what’s final (most photogs will let changes happen only if both sides agree to a change). It doesn’t mean she’s a bad photographer, she probably feels really bad & its super busy season for photogs.
