The photographer you've elected to go with doesn't have anything in their own portfolio that resembles the style you're looking for?
Regardless of any taboo, why not hire someone experienced in the style you're looking for. If your photographer doesn't have any examples in that style, then its entirely possible that they will be unable to reproduce that particular look for your wedding.
Expecting a photographer to produce something that is inconsistent with his/her previous work is a recipe for disappointment for either or both parties.
