If you are willing to help them pay for an upgrade, I think it’d be great to offer. If they are paying and this person is who they can afford (and who they are happy with), I think you should let it go. 

PI think photography is hugely important, but different people like different things.

@ladidah2:  I would just bring it up with them in a casual manner, and if they mention it’s because of budget constraints or you suspect it is, you could always offer to pay for the upgraded photographer as a wedding gift? Keep in mind though, they have more than likely forked out for a deposit and you have to be mindful of how much they may lose if they back out (depending on how long you have until the wedding etc.)

I would tell them what you think, but try not to force your opinions on them . Every photographer has his or her own style and if they booked him/ her they probably like the style ?

I wouldn’t speak up unless you are willing to pay for the extra photographer yourself. Not half and half, but completely a gift from your funds.

What do they think about their photos? If they are happy with their engagement pictures, I would let it be. Everyone has differant tastes, so even though you might think they are awful.. they might be exactly what they wanted. If they express interest that they aren’t satisfied, I would bring it up then.

Also, if they chose the photographer because it was in budget.. and you know they can’t afford another.. I would also keep it to yourself. No point in stressing out the newlyweds if they can’t afford anything else.
