I posted a while ago about being upset that my photographer cancelled my engagement shoot 2 weeks before it was scheduled with no explanation. My FH and I had both booked the day off and were a little more than upset when we found out it was so she could go party in Vegas for the weekend. I rescheduled for a day where I was able to get the day off again, but it was over a month after the original day and meant that our original plans for photos had to change. I got over that, but was definitely a bit bummed! We had originally planned to hike up a mountain to a beautiful viewpoint on the trail where we got engaged, but since snow happens around the first couple of weeks of September, we ended up planning on a beach photoshoot (still beautiful!) Anyway, we finally got to go out this past Saturday!
Our photographer is very active on social media and picking the right photographer was THE most important part of planning to me. We spent hours trying to decide on the right one, and ultimately chose ours because she is young and fun and loves doing different kinds of shoots. Her photos are all very natural looking and beautiful and I cant get enough of them!
Since we did our shoot, we haven't seen a single photo. (She had promised us a few by sunday, and we are now at wednesday). Her IG account was filled with drunken photos on Saturday, and hangover pictures on Sunday. She has since posted some other photoshoots and edits on her account, but still none of mine. I think the main frustration for me currently is feeling that because our shoot was free (it came with the price of our wedding package), she feels that it is less important than others because she has already received our money and we have already signed the contract.
I should include that I am not against drinking or partying, but there is a certain line between professionalism and owning a business that needs to be addressed.
How do I go about this? Has anyone else had a similar struggle with any of their vendors?
