Photographer backed out!

Recommended Posts

ARGG! I know I still have plenty of time, but I was pretty much done planning when my photographer backed out!! She decided that she doesn't want to do destination weddings anymore so has no reason to waste the time!!! Now I have to rethink my whole wedding!!! I was originally going to do the resorts free package but now I think I'm going to upgrade to the ultimate package so I can get photography included! So much to do now. Oh well, just wanted to vent. Thanks.

So sorry that your photographer backed out. Where are you getting married at? I am getting married at The Royal Cancun and I am working on booking an outside vendor for my photos and video. I wasn't too happy with their "house" photographer. Good Luck to you!

I'm so sorry to hear that. AT least you have time to find someone else. Maybe you can find someone in the area. Check the Cancun section for photog suggestions.

 

Good Luck!!

Thanks. I am getting married at Dreams Riviera Cancun. Because I am getting married on a Saturday most of the Cancun photographers are already booked for my date. I have entered on of the phtog contests in the venders section so I will cross my fingers. The "house" photographer for DRC doesn't look too bad I'm just bummed because I really wanted to do a TTD also. I may still be able to find someone to at least do a TTD a couple days after my wedding. It is just frustrating that someone can back out. Not only was she doing my wedding but we booked an engagement session in 3 weeks that she said she no longer wanted to do. I guess its for the best and I'm glad she told me sooner rather than later.

Sorry to hear about this! I hope you are able to find someone new! I think that was quite unprofessional of your photogopher. Even if she no longer wanted to do destination weddings, she should have honored her commitment. :/ Keep us posted!

Sorry to hear your photographer back out. However, it is a good thing it happened sooner than later. You still have time to come up with other options. Good luck!

Holy crap how unprofessional! Didn't you sign a contract? She can't just say I don't want to do it. I'd fight this. Obviously you don't want someone like that photographing your wedding, but seriously, get your deposit back and drag her reputation through the mud.

What were her reasons for not wanting to do the engagement session? She sounds like a real diva.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
