To not know, 6 weeks before the wedding, what time he will be there on the day of the wedding?
Let me start by saying that up to this point, communication with our photographer has been great. His work is amazing, and his personality is fantastic. I also am fully aware that this is a hugely busy time of year for weddings and I can see from his website/ facebook that he's been working like a machine lately.
A little history:
He didn't contact us about engagement pictures, so I e-mailed him in June asking if there is any information he needs for our wedding and also if we should start thinking about scheduling engagement pictures. I was a little irked at first that I had to contact him but then again I'm sure he has a lot to keep track of so I didn't give it another thought and scheduled the session for September.
We had to reschedule the first time (pouring rain) and then yesterday he texted to cancel our rescheduled session (rain again). Ultimately we decided to just not have engagement pictures because I can't take any more time off and our photographer doesn't have a weekend free until the weekend before our wedding. I'm fine with the decision to not have them done.
So here I am with 43 days to go and ready to book hair appointments and get a kind of timeline to the wedding party and I don't know when the photographer will be there. I asked in response to the e-mail he sent asking us to change the location of our engagement session, he didn't answer the question. I asked yesterday when he texted me to cancel and he didn't answer the question. Yesterday was the third time I've asked what time he will be there and what he would like to eat.
Is this normal? Should I wait it out? I don't want to be confrontational with him because I just don't want that kind of relationship with our photographer. It also doesn't state a specific time in our contract (huge mistake, apparently).
