Did you bring that to his attention? That’s crazy!

On his website was the price listed for a certain package or just a general number? Sometimes, depending on what you told him you wanted that may be more expensive. Let him know that what the website says and what you talked about was very different and have him explain to you what made the difference.

Haha I guess it shows you his integrity, so you can keep looking around… that’s insane. Glad to hear you didn’t “just go with it.”

wow. Can you take a screen shot of his website and then send that to him? I def would. But then again… I’m not sure you want to build bad blood between you and the photographer who will be doing your wedding! 

point that out to him, and then (once you’ve found a new photographer!) tell him that since he is either dishonest or incredibly disorganized, that you will be going with someone else.

as a photographer I can say those might be very basic prices on the website. If he has to travel out of his local range, pay extra tolls/gas that could raise the price. Also (and I don’t agree with this) i’ve seen photographers list a basic event price, which would be way less than a full wedding. Either that, or he hasn’t updated his website in a long time, in which case you want to move along because if he can’t stay on top of his website, I wouldn’t expect him to stay too on top of your wedding photos.

I would discuss this with him to make sure you are not missing something.
