- Wedding: April 2013
I just need to vent.
We got a photographer and booked him in July for our photos next april. We now have to fire him. He has bailed on us on schedualed dates and not returned calls. We have been trying to get in touch with him to terminate the agrreement and we cannot even do that. As the final straw he booked with us for today fo an enaga,ent shoot and did not show, this is how is went down;
Sep 21, 2012 – Confirmation of Engagement Shoot on Oct 22, 2012 – sent via email
Sep 21, 2012 – Response also informing of secondary date on Oct 14, 2012
Oct 1, 2012 – Sent email to photographer regarding confirmation of both date, Oct 21 and Oct 14th
Oct 10th, 2012 – Email from photographer determine if the 14th is ok and informing us the only next available date is Nov 4th.
Oct 10, 2012 – Response from me informing photographer that we also have the 21st booked and would like to wait until the 12th to make a decision about the 14th

So now I am out a deposit unless he will give it back and very angry. Lesson learned check every reference for a photographer so you dont get burned. I actually like his work to so now I have a couple weeks to find a photogapher as my wedding is 6 months away. Sooooooo bitter right now.
