    @Lemma:  Don’t lie. It’s important for him to know the reason.  If you explain that you are going to use a photog that’s further into their career, he/she will probably understand and might appreciate the feedback.

    I would just write back that you have chosen to go in a different direction. You don’t owe him an explanation. 

    I did this with a florist and it went over pretty well. 

    How much of a deposit are you going to lose? I mean he basically got paid for nothing (if you haven’t had any epics or bridals taken) so I wouldnt let him make you feel bad.

    Good luck!

    I would just say that you have decided to go with a different photographer.

    Like the others, I would just say that you had decided to use another photographer.

    @Lemma:  I understand completely, but I would rather have pictures I love over pictures that I am just lukewarm about. Remember that you will have these pics forever, you want the best you can possibly have.

    My first thought was to lie and tell him you got an amazing deal through a friend or something, just to spare his feelings.  Then I realized that he might try to counter-offer you with a good deal and you could end up in a bigger, more uncomfortable situation.  I like the “different direction” idea as well.  Good for you for getting what you want, by the way!
