This is a post looking for support, guidance, or maybe others who have experienced the same thing. I hired a well known London, Ontario photographer to shoot my October 2022 wedding. They are actually a Wedding Wire vendor. They were paid in full in two separate instalments in February and August 2021. In September I received an email saying that due to an injury our engagement photos would have to be rescheduled. No big deal. Then the photographer ghosted us for 6 months. Finally at the end of February, they sent out a mass email to their clients saying that all of their 2022 contracts are cancelled and refunds will be issued. They have since ghosted again. Currently I am owed $4049 from this individual who I cannot get in contact with. I've since hired a new photographer who is wonderful and now that the wedding is 6 months away the expenses are quickly adding up.
