I’m in a very similiar situation. I paid the deposit on a really nice photographer. But I’ve started to doubt him more and more. The new photographer I found said she’s available on our date and her photos are so incredible that I want to hang strangers pictures on my wall. As soon as we sign with her, we are going to call the other photogs and cancel them. And we can’t even get the deposit back. 

I feel really bad because out initial photogs are great people, and they were a lot cheaper. But in the end I think we want someone that would deliver our important day in a style we love. (I’m dreading the contact with the initial photogs though, so awkward…)

you don’t love his photography, but do you like his videography? Maybe you could use the deposit toward a full video, and then hire the new company for photography.

Well I don’t see how he could have a problem with your deposit going to video instead. I’m sure it will work out, and you’ll have lovely pictures AND a video to boot!

@Barbiestylez:  I’m losing 800 Cry. But 20 years later, that is gonna matter less. (My FI and FMIL aren’t helping. My FMIL hated her wedding photos, she won’t even show them to us!). And at least you might get videography! I think asking is a good way to go.

You’ll be out a lot more than 1k if you don’t end up with photos of your wedding day that you love.

are you going to ask him? There’s only one way to find out what he’ll say!

@Barbiestylez:  has he given you access to full galleries, or are you just seeing highlights/ blog posts?

It’s possible he gets the whole range, but advertises/ posts the most different non-classic ones…

@Barbiestylez:  can you use him as your videographer instead so you dont have to forfeit the deposit and then get the photographer you love?
