    Yikes – yes, I would be very upset.  I hope she apologized profusely.  That’s really unprofessional.

    Wow. What if you hadn’t contacted her? She, at the very least, owes you an apology.

    That would make me very annoyed and also nervous and worried about her reliability for the wedding! I think you should be up front with her about you frustrated this made you feel.

    Wow, I only had to reschedule a session once ever and I let the client know the minute I found out. I even gave them a print credit to make it up to them.

    I would call her and tell her she should have let you know earlier that she didn’t want your business and that you will be finding a more professional photographer that would be more than happy to take your photos at the agreed upon date and time.  She should have checked her business calendar before planning a personnal vacation and if nothing at least called you to reschedule.

    Are you sure she is the “one” for the job? This is unexcusable and very inconsiderate of you as the client. Her business is built on word of mouth and right now it doesn’t look good on her part. You may want to think of another 1st choice. I was having a few issues in the beginning with clashing of the schedules. The good thing is that there are thousands of vendors that do awesome jobs if you search for them.

    I wouldn’t think this was rude if she had called you first to let you know of a conflict in her schedule, but if you had previously made very specific plans with this photographer… I would be extremely concerned.  I understand her being unable to reschedule your session for a bouquet date… your florist may be able to make you a sample bouquet for your session…  but I think you might need to research another photographer!

    Considering she’s supposed to be a professional, whom you’ve hired, you as her client should be priority. Scheduling mishaps happen, but she should have made you aware of the conflict. (She also should have remembered your original appointment.)

    It may be an honest mistake. Do you feel like you can still trust her to handle your wedding day?

    Well yeah, I’d be irritated too.  I have very little patience for professionals who can’t keep their schedules straight.  I’ve not had that problem thus far with the wedding vendors, but in life in general.  I hope this is uncharacteristic of her and you guys have a smooth run from here on out!

    I say you stand up for yourself and get your money back/ a free shoot.
