FI and I have an appointment with a photographer whose work we really like, but only the associate photographer (whose work we also really like) is available on our wedding day. The main photographer, however, has told us that the associate photographer does not "do meetings" and that we will only be able to meet her at the engagement session. FI and I are both a little uncomfortable hiring a photographer we haven't met. Is it normal not to be able to meet with the photographer who will actually be shooting our wedding or should we keep looking for someone who will allow us to meet the person who will actually be doing our wedding?
Any guidance is greatly appreciated!
