I had *almost* booked a really expensive SJ photographer for our wedding - granted, i did like the work his studio did - but to be honest, I liked his assistant's work better and I couldn't hire just her (I had to book him and then pay nearly double for her time as a second photographer) - when yesterday, I met with a different photographer from a different company and really liked the pictures and the costs for all the things I wanted were almost 3k less (in a comparable package to what I would be getting with the other guy). I wrote an email to the photographer we were going to book letting him know what was going on and that I would be going with a different photographer after I had reconsidered.
Anyway, he just sent me the most awful email about how I must be *cheap* and don't care about my pictures and they will probably disintegrate after a year. I didn't mention who the other photographer was...but it left me feeling really crappy. So now I'm second guessing myself and wondering if I am making a mistake going with someone so significantly less expensive. Now my mind is going "well, there must be something wrong here, right?"
... Anyone experiencing similar situations? (lol as if wedding planning hasn't been giving me nightmares already!)
