Vendor Etiquette Question

So I went to a Bridal Expo at my planned venue a month or two back.  Mainly because we would get some extra upgrades for signing that night.  We entered raffles with all the vendors that were doing it.  I find out from a photographer today that I won a free Bridal Photo shoot.  However I signed my wedding photographer already.  I want to do the engagement pictures with her as well.

Would it be rude to do the Bridal shoot with this other photographer who I have no intentions of giving any other business?  I'm not even sold on the idea of a Bridal photoshoot.  On the other hand I worry that saying no is like saying I want to work with you so little that I don't even want a free service from you.

  • Nope. You won it. Cash in if you want to and don't if you don't want to, but you're under no obligation to engage further either way. It's business.

  • You won it so you're free to use it. You're under no obligation to book them for any future services.

    If you like them you can always write a review online (The Knot, Google, Yelp...) or recommend them to friends, but don't feel like you can't use it, or that you have to book anything else.
