No, I think you can go with another photographer and it’s not rude. You can be honest and say that $800 isn’t in the budget or you don’t have to tell her at all. However, based on personal experience, I think getting photos done with your main wedding photographer is truly a very good idea because that’s when you figure out if you really connect with the photographer and if she really gets you as a couple and will produce beautiful products. Given what I’ve read here and based on personal experience as well, I’ve learned that wedding photographers do not always show everything in their portfolio and rather, focus on the best (to get new clients!) so what you see online may not be truly indicative of everything. At least if you do the epix with her, you will see the full range of her skills and see if her personality meshes with yours and FI. Have you tried negotiating with her and telling her all this? What’s the max you can afford?
