Ugh! That sucks.

I know how you feel. The same thing happened to me a week and a half before my wedding.  Like you, I started having bad feelings about him but didn’t do anything about it.

He sent me an EMAIL to let me know that he had accidentally double-booked our date and he just realized it. RIGHT. He did call around and found 2 other photogs that were available on our date but I didn’t trust him at all after that. Luckily he gave us our deposit back promptly and I was able to book two awesome photographers for the price of one. My pictures turned out great.

I hope it all works out for you!!

If you aren’t finding anyone you love, try putting up an ad in the “wanted” section of Craigslist explaining your dilemma (how your initial photog cancelled, etc) and give your budget.  I’m CERTAIN you’ll get some replies.

Here is a great website for finding a photographer.  I just met the founder a couple of weeks ago and love what they are putting together. http://www.snapknot.com/ I can’t believe someone would do that to their clients… I would never even imagine.  {esp the double booking one!! sheesh} 

Good Luck!

That’s awful!

But, wait, you didn’t keep a copy of the contract? Even if he asked for 2 copies back, you should have photocopied it or something! Hopefully your experience will teach other brides to ALWAYS keep a copy of the contract… If you don’t have a copy, you have nothing to stand on. He can shred the 2 you sent him & call it a day.

I truly hope you get your money back & find a good photographer! Good luck!

That is so stressful! Ours just cancelled on us last week, at least I have a lot more time than you, but everyone books up so fast where I am from, especially in June, and we already have everything else booked so we can’t just change the date!  Good luck and hope you find someone soon!
