This is my first forum post and I’m looking for some advice!
When we set a date for a our wedding last year we didn’t think twice before asking our close friends, who are also professional wedding photographers, to capture our big day.
Since then we have continued with the rest of the wedding planning and Pinterest board making and we now have a much better idea of the vibe of our wedding we’re being drawn to photographers who have a completely different style to our friend’s and we’re really starting to worry that we won’t love our wedding photos.
We don’t want to offend our friends by cancelling our booking as we think they’re brilliant and very talented, their style just isn’t right for us. We also don’t want to pay a lot of money for photos we don’t love. We appreciate this is completely our fault for getting too excited and booking them before doing proper research but we want to try and resolve the issue whilst avoiding offending them if possible!
Do we be completely honest with them and see if they can incorporate the styles we like into our wedding photos?
Do we find another photographer whose style we prefer and be honest with our friends about cancelling?
Or do we stick with our friends and accept the final photos might not be to our taste?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated! This is giving me some serious sleepless nights as I really don’t want to offend them!
Thanks for your help!
