I've run into my first dilemma in wedding planning and need some advice. I just got engaged a few weeks ago and have started preliminary planning. My future MIL suggested we use her cousin, who does photography. I thought this might be a nice idea...Then I saw his website. His website is not professional and the few pictures posted looked terrible. The poses were very cheesy and staged. I like more photojournalistic and artsy pictures.
This week my fiancee told me his mother already booked this photographer. They have offered to pay for him but I'm freaking out. Here are my concerns: They booked him without consulting me and without me seeing his pictures. He has not offered to reduce prices for family and there's no way I would pay what he wants to charge for the quality of pictures I've seen on his website.
I don't want to cause drama with my future ILs and I can't afford to hire a separate professional photographer and pass him off as my cousin. WHAT DO I DO?!?? Thanks for any advice!
