    I just wanted to share that I would be completely livid if my photographer did this.  Good luck getting everything straightened out!

    How frustrating! You’d think she would help you make arrangements with another photographer, at least refer you to a colleague or something… As far as the boudoir photos, if you don’t have that much confidence in her, I’d think about doing them with someone else. Boudoir photos seem a little more sensitive than other types of photos, so I’d think it would be really important to trust the photographer and know that you will have some control in the process. Good luck!

    Did you pay her a retainer?

    Yeah, if you paid her a deposit, definitely talk about getting that back.  And see if she can help you find a replacement; every photographer I talked to said that in the event that something happened to them they would find someone as a replacement.  The wedding photographer community is supposed to be pretty good, at least the network of photographers who know each other.

    Unbelievable….I’d be pissed!  Is there a place where you can write a negative review?

    I wouldn’t use a referral from her anyhow. Generally sketchy people know other sketchy people. Good luck and get that contract this time!!;)

    @pinkgreenandyellow:  I would post reviews on weddingwire and theknot. Most reputable photographers have a few reviews on each site and I know I read reviews on there for all of my vendors before booking them. A review like what you’ve written on here would have warned me if I was considering using her.

    Saying this as a photographer, find someone else.  We have moved our business 3 times, and we’ve never not shot a wedding that we’ve booked.  One year we ended up flying back to our previous city 19 times to fulfill wedding contracts.  Of course the fact that you never had a contract in of itself is an immediate reason to disqualify any wedding vendor from service.
