Perhaps it’s because we are coming into “wedding season”.  I would maybe send a followup email saying that you are keen to tie the date down with them and leave a deposti asap.  Usually mentioning cash does the trick.  A lot of photographers are self employed so are crazy busy over the summer. I know our guy was tough to get a hold of over the summer months…

We’re having a small wedding too, in the height of wedding season and I’ve been ignored by plenty of vendors.  I actually see it as a way to weed out the ones I wouldn’t want to work with.  Really, who wants a photographer that doesn’t get back to you for months?  They’re good, but they’re no Ansel Adams.  I would suggest calling midweek if you can, sometimes messages can be lost in the weekend craziness.

I don’t think I’ve been outright ignored by anyone, but sometimes it takes ages to get response to website forms. Caterers especially were really really bad about this, I don’t think they were regularly checking their inboxes.

That said, months is a bit much! I’d try giving them a call and if they ignore you, ignore them. You don’t need that lol.

@emmeff:  try The Burks. They are a great couple, they are very responsive. They always answered me within hours not days, we also received our photos quickly (A teaser photo that day, a set of previews in a few days and all the photos within a few weeks). check out their work to see if its your style http://Www.meettheburks.com. They are based in NC but travel around the country.

Keep looking. Busy season is no excuse for this behavior.

Smaller budget- expand your search up to 4 hours away. Im upstate in Syracuse and service the HV/NYC/NNJ area. I am priced lower than NYC photographer because my cost of living is less up in Syracuse even though my prices are not cheap if you know what I mean. Many of us easily travel 5 hours from home. Try Albany since they are so close to HV. 🙂 Good luck!

@luvmesumhim:  I agree.  I really like their work and they will travel anywhere!

Plus they’re only a few hours away!  Smile

My favorites are the ones that you emailed months ago (like over 6-7) and then they email you back asking if you’re still interested and answer your questions.. then when I don’t reply back.. they email 2-3 times more asking if i got the email and if i wanted to see more of their portfolio or set up a meeting to chat.. like hello why would i hire you 6-7 months after the time I was looking when I on your priority list then.. lol
