- Wedding: May 2011
Our photographer backed out 5 months before our wedding due to her finding out she is pregnant and due close to our wedding date. I understand things happen, but I am still a little upset that she has no back up plan. The main problem is that since she is a family friend she was cutting us a fantastic deal. I’m talking engagement session, photo album, a disc with all photos, and 8+ hours of coverage for under $1,000.00. Since she agreed to do our wedding, we spent the remainder of what we set aside for photography on other things. Now that she backed out we are in a total bind and can’t really afford much more than maybe $1,000- $1,200.00. I was scrambling all day yesterday calling and e-mailing any photographer I could find in our area. Everyone was either booked or WAY out of our price range. I cried myself to sleep last night from the stress.
This morning our original photographer e-mails me saying that she can still do our wedding if I “still want her to.” She said she will be fine for the wedding and her due date is in July – a month after our wedding. Now I am really pissed. I stressed myself out for a whole day only to find out that now she can magically be there. I feel so uneasy about this whole thing and am petrified that she may have complications with her pregnancy and go into labor early thus leaving us with no photographer.
I have no idea what to do. Anyone have any advice for me? Would you trust her with your day??
