    • Wedding: February 2015 - Mount Hermon

    I don’t like the first one.  Mostly because their resolution on the online gallery is crap.  If a photographer is trying to sell their work, they should post good pictures in a high resolution. The poses themselves are all predictable and boring.  Nothing new or original here, and the people don’t look comfortable (notice the lack of people’s faces in the pictures).

    The second has a little more photoshop going on (which you can always ask for less of), but the people seem a little more comfortable in front of the camera. 

    The third is a little less shopped, but the posed pictures look a little stiffer.  Just slightly, the differences between the 2nd and 3rd are very minute.  I’d meet with both and see who you like better.  

    On a second look, the 2nd photographer posted absolutely zero posed pictures.  Is that because they love candids (great! me too!) or because they suck at posed (not great, posed are a necessary part)? You should ask to see  a couple entire wedding sets, including the posed formals.

    @kansas_nurse:  No problem.  After looking at the engagement photos, #2 has WAY better ones, if that helps. And a bigger gallery.

    Are these choices based on budget constraints?

    The only one I like is #1.

    #2 over softens the skin in a lot of the shots which really dates the pictures. Their attempt at backlighting is really strange as well.  As long as they were actually trying to do backlight.  If they weren’t then I have no clue what those dark pictures are about.

    #3 has a lot of unflattering poses/angles and awkwardly chosen candids.

    @KateByDesign:  I completely agree on all points.

    #1 is the best. The resolution might look weird because it’s actually too high resolution and all the pixels are packed together tightly for display.

    @kansas_nurse:  

    1. (Capture) – In her black and whites, the white is entirely too blown out. 

    2. (Seth)  He uses sepia and selective coloring which are both very dated forms of editing. If you’re okay with that, he could be an okay option.

    3.  (Dove) Sam as capture, not only are their black and whites blown out but a lot of the color are.

    4.  (Melenbacker) – I think they are your best option out of all that you have posted.  Pictures are pretty and they seem to be the most talented out of the bunch.

    @kansas_nurse: I would tell you to keep looking….I got married Oct 19th and the whole wedding was a BLUR! I wasn’t drunk (infact I didn’t drink at all) and yet I hardly remember the wedding. It passes by so quickly but fortunately everyone had a BLAST. You are going to WANT a great photographer that can capture all the moments that you WILL miss. At the end of the day you will feel like you were in a daze and all you desire are pictures to prove it happened. These are photos your kids and grandchildren will see, isn’t it worth a bigger budget?
