Be upfront and firm about it.  Don’t tiptoe around her feelings.  If she is a professional, she will understand.  This is your day and you are paying for her services and these vendors.  Phrase it politely but don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself.

Be honest.  It may be the only vendors she has, but most people can find reputable vendors who do excellent work, who are more than willing to give you deals, or work with your budget, within reason.  It’s been my experience that if I find vendors with family owned businesses they throw stuff in for free.  Be honest, its your day, and there are SOO many photogs, videogs and makeup artists out there that if you dont like their photos.. move on.  Every artist knows good photos are your first impression so if those arent good or jus tnot what you are looking for, i wouldnt waste my time on them.  Tell her you are thankful for her suggestions but maybe you can look on your own.  It is her responsibilty to get things in your budget too so sometimes if she calls the vendor you found it could grease the wheels a little with their generosity.
