Move on. Can you imagine dealing with this kind of behavior as your wedding gets closer?

Move on. His pictures may be good because he may be busy focusing on his art, but his business manner is terrible.

Find someone who can balance both! Or who has a team to handle business while he handles the photography.

I know this must be a hard situation. Maybe his work looks really good and it makes you really want to hire him, but what a lot of couples don’t consider is maybe this photographer doesn’t have the type of personality you need to be your photographer. Personality is almost more important than the photos! You have to be compatible.

I am a wedding photographer and I understand sometimes juggling a business and life and things can be hard. I still work full time because I’m new to the industry and still need to make money, but I still would never miss a meeting I set with a client. It’s really not acceptable. It seems like maybe a client more fit for this photographer is a more laid back client that doesn’t care about photos that much. Or maybe he doesn’t have a huge passion for what he does, but whatever it may be it seems like he doesn’t work for you.

I would definintely look elsewhere for a photographer you can be more compatible with that has a good portfolio. Good luck! 🙂

@paisleyb:  If if this photographer has amazing photographs, their repoire with potential clients is terrible! There is no good reason why they haven’t responded to you in 2 weeks. I could understand a few days but 2 weeks?! I would definitely move on and find a photographer that will respond to you more. 🙂 I agree with the PP that if this is their response now, that it might something to worry about if you were to hire them for your wedding! I would interview at least 2 other photographers and make sure they are responsive within reason 1-2 business days isn’t unreasonable. 🙂

That really stinks! But it’s time to find a new photographer. The guy is a serious flake!
