@PrincessBrideSuzy: We broke our contract with The Pros for photography. The service and product they had provided to me was terrible. We had paid them for our engagement photos so we were able to get a full refund for the amount we had paid towards our wedding photos. It might be different though since they are a national chain with a customer service center!

read your contract carefully to find out your penalties, then just send a polite email saying that you’ve decided to break the contract and go with someone else.

Be upfront with your photographer and tell her/him that you’ve decided to go with someone else.  You don’t have to get into the nitty gritty details of what you don’t like about their style, just let them know that what you’re looking for in wedding pictures has changed since you booked them.

Be prepared to lose your deposit, because that’s usually non-refundable.

Be sure that the other photographer you want to go with is available on your wedding date, because June is a very popular month for weddings, and there’s a possibility they may already be booked.

Don’t feel bad about changing your mind, because in the end the pictures are all you have and you want to make sure you’re really happy with the person you chose!

I agree with QueenB’s advice… very well said.

We ended up getting a better DJ for free (yay family hook-up!), so we had to cancel our previous DJ contract. We only lost the deposit and no offense was taken on their parts given the situation.
