My mom insists on using another wedding photographer for our formal photographs. Is that okay?

Many professional wedding photographers will object to another photographer being commissioned for your wedding.  Perhaps this issue has arisen because you have selected an informal photojournalistic style concentrating on unposed spontaneous events, while your mother is more focused on a studio style of more traditional, posed family portraits.  If that’s the case, consider finding a wedding photographer who is comfortable providing both traditional and photojournalistic-style images.  Another alternative is to ask your wedding photographer whether he or she has an associate who could shoot the more traditional formals.  Consult with your wedding photographer and check the details of your contract for other limitations on using another photographer.
