I’d ask your photog first. If she can’t, then whats the harm in waiting a bit after your wedding for a TTD and using another photog?

Yeah, I would mention to your photographer that you can’t afford her TTD session but really want her/him.  See what they can do. They might be willing to work with you some more.  I would think they would want to do as many sessions as possible with you.  More money for them.  If they can’t work with you, I wouldn’t feel bad looking for others.  I wouldn’t tell the other photographers that they weren’t good enough, but I would tell them that you are looking for a different style than your wedding photos. Plus, you can tell them that you were looking in a particular price range.

i was in a similar situation and was upfront with my photographer and told her there was no way i could afford her TTD.  and she knew i was then going to do it with someone else who i had actually booked my wedding and cancelled before her.  she then lowered her price to what i could afford and finally i went with her.

there were other reasons to stay with a different photog as well for the TTD (in terms of location etc), but i was advised (on the bee!) that i would be better off keeping one photog for everything as i would be more comfortable shooting with the same photog after having spent my wedding day with them,

I think that’s totally ok! It’s only not ok when you book a second photog to shoot your wedding when you haven’t talked to the 1st photog about it.
