KayKPhillips:  You did the right thing – now hire a full-time photographer and put your mind at ease! As with MOST wedding vendors, you get what you pay for. It sounds like this photographer was really unprofessional and that’s not worth the savings.

“I know people are busy and all photographers balance the life of an actual job and being a photographer.”<br /><br />

 

I don’t understand what you mean by this. A good deal of photographers are professionals that do this 100% of the time. Was the person that did this session an amature who did this part-time? Instead of feeling bad, I’d focus on finding another photographer that you like. If you didn’t do it before, do your due diligence of researching multiple photographers, asking questions, and even meeting some of them to see how you vibe.  Good luck.

Can we see some of your engagement pics? I would dump her and hire someone else if you’re not happy. It’s your money and you won’t be able to re-capture those moments if they turn out bad so don’t risk it.

you could sugar coat it with “we want our wedding pics to have a different style to our engagement pics”

Your the client, you can do what you want! 🙂

I had “hired” a photographer for our wedding, then after much thought I regreted it and changed my mind.  We didn’t sign a contract or anything and he was fine with us not picking him.  I went with someone else and couldn’t have been happier.
