While it doesn’t make it right (they should respond), I too am thinking that the multiple emails may have made it seem like your a potential “problem bride”. If they let you know they were on a curise and would be home in a couple of days and you were already emailing again by day 2, it could have put them off.

I know for me personally, when I come in from out of town I will have every intention of sitting down my first day back to tackle emails/calls but sometimes it takes longer than that. There have definitely been times where I’ve spent an entire Monday doing office work and STILL didn’t make it through all my emails.

I would find a different photographer.

@Charliejeorge:  It’s the middle of wedding season and they just had a baby. I’d cut them some slack honestly. I think your follow up email was too soon and it’s possible they were in the middle of getting back in town and saw it but didn’t have time to respond to it at that moment and now it has slipped their mind or been pushed down in their inbox. If you really want to work with them, give it a little while more and follow up with a phone call.

Start looking into other options.  If they get back to you, are professional and apologetic, great.  If not, then you’ve got some other possibilities underway.
