Ok ladies, I need some advice! I'm torn on the etiquette on working with friends for help with the wedding.
My former coworker is a professional (semi) photographer on the side. She does great work, so in May I reached out to her to ask her to do my engagement photo session. I haven't seen her (I'll call her "A") in a couple years. Because I live in Phoenix, we decided to wait to do the shoot until October.
The dilemma is that one of my current coworkers "M" also does photography on the side. In addition, "M" is super crafty and has an etsy shop selling paper stuff like invites for kids birthday parties. So I asked her if she could potentially help me to do my invitations, programs, OOT bags, etc. I also invited her and her husband (also my coworker) to my wedding.
Do you think it is poor etiquette to ask "M" to do our engagement photo shoot instead of "A"? Nothing was set in stone with "A" and I haven't had any communication with her since. I'm thinking I'd really prefer "M" especially because I think I'll be working with her pretty closely over the next few months on the other stuff.
