    I don’t see why it’d be a problem?

    Why wouldn’t you?  If you have seen the work and like it, that’s great for everyone (you know what your getting, the photographer gets another client, etc.)!

    Oh, totally go for it!  I found our wedding photographer because a girl who I was friends with in high school got married and posted her awesome pictures on Facebook.

    I can’t see why there would be any problem with booking the photographer she used. Likely she will take that as a compliment about how great you thought her wedding photos were, if she thinks about it at all.

    I don’t see any problem with it.  The “referral” process is one of the biggest way photographers find clients.

    Ditto, @SapphireSun.  Referral business is HUGE.  It’s win-win-win.  The photographer gets business, you get a photographer you like, your acquaintance will probably be flattered at how much you liked her pics, and if I were you, I’d totally name drop her to the photographer in case he does any referral bonuses or sends free prints or something to people who refer him.  Go for it!

    I only did the “” around referral, because it kind of sounded like you found her wedding pictures via facebook stalking or something…

    Send the person an inquiry!  🙂

    As for your email, I think the photographer would be pretty happy actually.  Not only would he know that more people love his style, he is also getting more business.

    Wait, why are you emailing this girl? Do you need to get the name of the photographer? In your post you made it sound like you knew who the photographer was in which case why would you need to tell her anything at all?

    I’m not quite sure why you would let the girl know.  I mean this is really between you and the too-be-photographer.
