He is the one who actually broke the contract by not showing up to the shoot so you could, in theory take him to court to get your deposit back. Not sure how much or if it’s even worth it though. Just be glad you are not dealing with this for your wedding and you do have time to find someone new. This guy does not sound like a professional at all.

Your next step is to write a certified letter to him outlining how he broke the contract and you are officially terminating it. I would also say he has 30 days to return your deposit for breach of contract and or you will take it to the courts. Just make sure it’s certified and you get a signature saying he received it.

So it sounds like you guys went back and forth about e pic dates, but there was never a date set by both perties. The one date you had been thinking about you wanted to wait until 2 days befor eto confirm, am I reading that right?

@m7878:  did you have a written contract with the deposit amount showing?  was it a large deposit?  will it be worth taking him to court?  perhaps a letter from a lawyer will be enough to get your money back.

I had something very similar happen to me. Our photographer cancelled our engagement shoot 30 minutes beforehand, never contacted me and then got pissy when I contacted her. And then continued to not email me. I got a new photographer, then emailed her and cancelled the contract. My photographer refunded my deposit, luckily.

If your photographer won’t respond to an email, send a registered letter to cancel. 

I am very happy with my new photographer. She is amazing and so much better than my old one. It was the best choice for me, and I actually am so happy that the whole situation happened.

Good luck with your situation!
