catalina.caballero2:  I’m assuming they’re refunding all of the money you paid them, so even if they are lying what can you do? It’s a crappy situation but they are by no means obligated to provide their medical information to you. They are (or should be – read your contract) obligated to refund you, though. 

Does he not have a backup? He works solo? He can’t refer you to someone else on short notice?

catalina.caballero2:  but he’s sending someone in his place…I guess I don’t understand the issue. Is it that you are worried about the other person’s quality of work?

Would it have been less suspicious a day after the wedding?

Why is it suspicious that it is “so close” to the wedding? Are all vendors magically protected from medical maladies a week before a wedding? Because if so, I am totally in the wrong field.

You’re free to ask… 

That said.. ok, say you find out they were lying.  Now what?  Do you really want a photographer who was caught in a lie trying to get out of your wedding being in charge of your photos?

I wouldn’t think that he would double book and then pay another photographer to do your photos. I would assume that since he isn’t fulfilling your contract, he would have to pay someone to do them. I doubt he has a friend that would do it for free…. That doesn’t seem like it would make financial sense. 

I would be inclined to think that your photographer seriously came down with something. And I would also agree with others that it isn’t suspicious that it’s close to your wedding that it happened. It’s just really horrible and stressful for you.
