I've been MIA lately... Work has been insane, my company was recently acquired by European corporation and I have been all over the place.
Needless to say I am two and a half months out and second-guessing my photography choice.
I booked with somebody who only had one review on here but it was positive. I was attracted to his prices. We had a great series of conversations and I felt good about moving forward with him. I booked him about six months ago. Have a small deposit down. He said he would check in with me on a monthly basis I haven't heard from him.
I was looking online and reading some of his most recent reviews. He actually does a lot of model photography but has a good section on his website about his wedding experience. Some recent reviews scared me. Talking about his lack of professionalism, waiting and waiting for photos. These were from models. Is wedding reviews are great but the most recent reviews are for models. One even had a screenshot of a text message conversation she had with him where he called her fat and was pissed that she hadn't paid her.
This has all gotten me very worried. i'm wondering if I should consider somebody else. You get what you pay for right?
Looking for quick answers... Who did you book with and how much is it costing? We are not having a traditional reception. Looking for somebody to take pictures getting ready, maybe two hours before the ceremony, during the ceremony, and maybe some nighttime photos on the strip. I am looking for artistic and photo journalistic type photos, not posed. What I liked about this guy is that he said he could come back after our dinner was over we could take some nighttime photos. We are just having dinner for my group at a restaurant I didn't think we needed a photographer in there to take pictures.
Sorry for the babbling. What do you think I should do? Is it worth calling him expressing my concerns about the reviews that I've seen? We did have some really good conversations and it sounded like he would be all about our wedding. I'm just having a little freak out here.
Appreciate any advice, thank you!
