    Can you maybe ask your photographer for some references of other clients? Maybe it would help to talk to his or her other clients to get a feel for how they work and for a chance to more photos.

    But if you are truly not comfortable with them, I would find another one.

    Have you looked around yet to see if anyone else you like is available in your price range for your date?  If you’re only going to lose $100, to give yourself piece of mind, I say why not.  Sounds like you booked them more for the price rather than the talent.  No harm in looking around!

    I’d look around some more, only losing a $100 vs. hating the pictures afterwards is a minimal loss. Most wedding photographers do offer digital files, maybe shop around and see if they could work something up. Also did you view a full wedding done by them? That’s really important.

    It doesn’t hurt to do a little research. Keep your date for now with your current photographer, but do some more research with others. If you can find a photographer who you think has better quality than your current and is worth switching for (BTW, the digital rights are so key), then you can switch. There’s  no reason why you can’t look, and your other photographer doesn’t have to know! If you look, and still decide to keep your current, then at least you know you went the extra mile to be sure this is what you want.

    Looking around more doesn’t hurt.

    You can request to view your photographer’s recently completed wedding sessions, instead of just the ones posted on his/her website. That should give you a good idea of what you’ll be getting.
