Posted in Planning 70

so here we are 4 days before the big day, my photographer hasn't answered me back and i can no longer find her in social media and I already paid her half. what should I do? I'm so stressed that my chest is starting to hurt and I'm legit loosing it.

    I know how you feel being so close to the wedding and already have given this person money. You want to think positive and keep your hopes up. It's a good thing that you found another photographer just in case. And like I said if she doesn't end up showing I'd definitely try seeing if you can get your deposit back because her not answer you back in 2 weeks and deactivating her account is not an emergency situation.

    My only thought is maybe she just recently went out of business and hasn't had the chance to update everything. I would look for a new photographer ASAP.

    My videographer ghosted me the week of my wedding so I messaged him on Thumbtack, email, phone, Facebook you name it. He ended up showing up and doing a beautiful job. I only say this to let you know that it may turn out fine. BUT, I agree that this is not okay and you shouldn’t wait to look into alternatives. I would start pricing other photographers right now.

    When is the last time you talked to her? Is there another way to get in contact with her?

    Honestly I would try that. And if she's no longer in business the least she could do is let you know

    I’m so sorry you’re going through this! Your dilemma is helping others that might have signed up for her crappy business!

    Don't worry about if it makes you look like a crazy person, it is 4 days before your wedding and she isn't responding and it sounds like she either went out of business or is just scamming you. She's lucky you haven't found her home address and aren't knocking on her door right now because that's what I would be doing lol I would definitely also look into another photographer because you don't want to not have any photographer if she doesn't get back to you. Good luck I hope it all works out for you

    Oh no, that's awful!! Best if luck finding a new photographer, though. And I agree about trying to get your deposit back. Totally unfair. The least they could do was explain.
