@Pupperoni: Whoa. That’s crazy! I can’t believe he actually thought he had a shot at getting your business!

haha! glad you said something! I hate it when vendors ask who you choose and why. AWKWARD.

He probably had a cancellation or realized he still had that date open and said oh this girl probably doesn’t have her shit together just like me. She might still need a photog.

What a nut job! Glad you gave him a little reality check.

@Pupperoni: I think your response was completely appropriate.  He had no right to ask who else you were using, it is none of his business.  That is one thing that pissed me off so much about some of the vendors we opted not to have, very unprofessional.

I got multiple emails from a banquet hall I had requested information from.. the first was 3 months later. the second one was 5 months later.

Thanks but we’d had our venue for months at that point. 🙂

Wow, that is ridiculous! My photographer showed me her e-mail and it was INSANE! Hundreds of new e-mails every single freaking day. Needless to say, I don’t get snappy anymore when she doesn’t answer for a few days. But months later? Come on!

A videographer keeps calling me because he got my name from a bridal show (first mistake ever…) I told him that I already had a photographer (because he SAID he was a photographer at first). Then when I realized it was video I said I’m not interested. He said, really? And tried to tell me why I needed it… I said I wasn’t interested, I also started out the conversation explaining that I was busy… so why are you still trying to talk to me? Eventually he left me alone, but called me the next day with his same message… I told him he already called me, and he was like “Oops”. But called me the day afterwards AGAIN! This is not an accident and NO I don’t want to use you. Geez!

I have clients contact me and I go over things with them via email, prices, booking matters, etc. They disappear and come back in 6 months wanting to book at old rates after I’ve already raised. Just thought I’d let you know it’s just as annoying when the shoe is on the other foot 🙂

@Pupperoni: Oh no, this isn’t related to what you said 🙂 The guy is crazy if he thought you hadn’t moved on yet! I was just adding to the thread that it happens the other way around too!
