Photographer drama and the most generous offer I've ever received.

I'll preface this by saying that FH is a photographer he just stopped when he moved here because he didn't want to build a client base again.

So when we got engaged he said he wanted to do our wedding shots. I said no way it wasn't even possible and he clearly can't take photos that he needs to be in.

We asked two friends, both take excellent pictures, one was doing the getting ready and formals and one was doing the ceremony.

The one doing the ceremony can't come to the wedding because it is the opening night of a play that he is the director of so that is totally understandable.

Today I'm talking to the girl who is supposed to do our getting ready shots and she says "I've been wondering why your date was funny to me! I have a doctors appointment that day with a specialist!! which is complete and utter bullshit she just doesn't want to do it. I won't get into the doctor on a saturday let alone a specialist issue but I do know the test she is having done CONT.

    They WILL NOT do while she is pregnant.

    So I was SUPER UPSET! 22 days out and no one to take pictures!! I posted on my local wedding swap group asking if anyone had a suggestion or if a student wanted to do it as a portfolio piece and a local photographer messaged me and offered to do it FOR FREE!!!! I’m so happy! Everything with this damn wedding seems to be a hiccup and an upset but this REALLY worked out in our favor!

    The photographer said when she was getting married she had her baker back out a week before, keep the deposit, and screw her over. When she went to find someone new a baker offered to do it free because of what she’d been through so she is paying it forward with us!

    I cannot express how happy I am!

    We're meeting on sunday so I'm going to make sure this doesn't happen again when we meet!

    I'm for sure going to be her biggest supporter and spread her name EVERYWHERE! Hopefully after the wedding well be able to give her a huge tip!
