@pink0815:  Should I assume she will get more experience and hope that by next year the quality will be better?

No. The quality will probably be about the same as it is now and as the work currently on her website/blog. I would be very surprised if they magically got better/more artsy ect.

If you are truelu y unhappy with the photos I would look through your contract to see how much money you would owe if you break it now. You might be responsible for the entire amount if you cancel, even if she books someone else for your wedding day. Since she is a friend, I would tell her that you have decided to go with another photographer, and would like a refund for the portion of the money which is for your wedding day assuming she books another client for that day. Part of the reason you have a contract is to keep her from booking other clients that day and you need to respect the fact that she has potentially turned down business for you because you had booked her for your wedding day. If she is unable to rebook your wedding day, I think it is reasonable for her to expect the entire balance your contract states you would have paid. However, there is still about a year until your wedding so she should be able to book someone else. If she can book someone else I think she should return the money to you, but legally she is probably not obligated to since she has upheld her end of the contract.

You know, it is really funny that you wrote this because I just recently had this same thing happen to me. I actually posted it on here if you want to look at others’ advice. 

I was also really doubting my photographer’s skills, even though I hadn’t had any work done personally yet…but based on his portfolio I started to second guess myself after browsing on this website. After hearing many people’s opinions, and getting past FI’s grumblings that we were going to lose our $300 deposit, I decided that the photographer is the most important part of the wedding; if you aren’t happy with your photos, you can’t really redo them. So if you think you are doubting your choice, please do something about it! We ended up getting a new photographer, and I am so excited about his work (even if it was a lot of extra money). 

Oh yeah, and based off of what you just said, we had already paid our photographer too, but we are getting that money back. Your photog will hopefully just charge you for the engagement session.
