    I'll definitely keep this in mind when finalizing photographers.

          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.

          #15 aimee!
