Pro Engagement Pictures are Booked!

So, I finally tracked down the photographer. Or, more appropriately, I found a different photographer. I loved the first photographer's pictures, but I could have cared less for his complete inability to return my phone calls or e-mails. My original intention was to have our engagement pictures taken in mid-October, when fall foliage would have been at it's peak. I guess that was not meant to happen. By the time November rolled around, I finally talked to the manager of the company and expressed my dissatisfaction. My concern was that if I was having such a hard time tracking this photographer down for an engagement session, would he be reliable enough to show up at the wedding? The manager allowed me to change photographers. So, back to the drawing board. I looked at a variety of portfolios and ultimately decided on this one. I have to say, I'm already impressed.

The manager of the photography company forwarded my information to the photographer, and less than a week later I received and e-mail and a phone call to schedule our engagement pictures. The photographer asked that I provide three dates that we would be available, and then worked with our schedule to fit in a session. I am happy to say that our engagement session is scheduled for this Sunday at Portland Headlight. The location is gorgeous, I only wish that the weather would cooperate. Right now, the temperature is expected to be in the 30's, and the wind off of the ocean is not going to help anything. Now to figure out what we are going to wear...

Did you experience any difficulties with any of your vendors? How did you resolve the situation?

  1. I had the same problem with a wait staff company. This woman took forever to get quotes to me that I finally gave up and called someone else. I emailed the first lady about my dissatisfaction and never even heard back from her about that! she could have at least apologized.
    I've also asked my photographer multiple times to send me the contract. But I'm hesitant to "fire" him because he's been the photographer for multiple family events. not sure what to do about this one.
