Vanessa Vargas Double-Booked Me

Recommended Posts

I'd like to say something in defense of Vanessa. I've worked with her several times and she's a great person. Very sincere and humble. Many of us are running small businesses by ourselves. Handling all the booking, accounting, R&D, shooting, editing, shipping... everything. I shouldn't speak for Vanessa regarding your wedding, but I can understand how a mistake like this can happen. It nearly happened to us a couple weeks ago when one bride called on the phone in the morning to book the same date that another bride was emailing to book in the afternoon. I had been emailing with the afternoon bride for several weeks and we were both sure that I would be shooting her wedding, but an older lead popped up with the morning phone call and booked the date from under her. It happens, and with a small one or two person business where artists have to also be accountants and office managers, sometimes wires get crossed.


I think it shows some integrity on Vanessa's part to say "I'm sorry I double booked and I can't shoot your wedding." There are many who would prefer to keep the revenue and send an associate to shoot your wedding.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
