What your friends think is amazing could be boring and lackluster if you have higher expectations for your photography.  In general hiring someone cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t be as creative, but less experienced and less confident.  Either way I’d wait until you have looked at the photos before making a final decision, but I wouldn’t stick with someone you’re not feeling comfortable with or confident in for your wedding.  Also her not being familiar with the place should be a source of inspiration for somewhere she’s never worked before, it shouldn’t be a negative.

I’ve said it before here, but if you need to be telling your photographer what to do at your wedding you haven’t hired a wedding photographer.

Oh and for what it’s worth I probably wouldn’t have taken a photo of your ring on your hand either… that’s a shot that’s been done to death.  We do ring shots at the wedding that are off the hand and incorporate something unique about the day.

I’d wait & see how the photos come out, maybe there is more creativity than you remember.  If you get them back & they’re not as creative as you thought, voice your concerns with your photographer. Maybe she was having a really “off” day? Doesn’t really give her an excuse however.

Have you seen an entire wedding of hers?
