    I like Windy Peak’s photography more, but not $1,000 more so I voted for Nicole.  I also agree with a lot more weddings under her belt by 2014 she will be able to do something great for your big day.

    I hired a photographer that had only done 5 weddings by the time he did ours, and now he’s an international wedding photographer star and was recently featured in Popular Photography magazine.  I’m a big believer in giving the little fish a chance and I think Nicole has a lot of potential!

    This one is simple: you pick the one in your budget.

    Also, ask Nicole to see her full portfolio – not just what she puts on her web site. Hopefully this will reassure you.

    When you’re hiring an inexperienced wedding photographer images aren’t everything you need to consider. Does she know how to run a wedding day? Can she help you consult on timelines etc? Can she calm a mob having a freak out or stand her ground if an uncle starts trying to sidetrack the family shoot to the location of his choice. Weddinphotographers need to know a lot more than just taking the photos.

    Definitely go for Nicole! She has great shots and in fact I prefer her work. Plus, she is in your price-range! 

    I don’t think you should worry about her being a risk. As long as you look hard at the contract, the fact she has a whole season of weddings still to add to her portfolio would put my mind at ease. It is really important that you are comfortable with your photographer (I hear, I’m having a destination wedding so unfortunately have no choice on that!)

    Have you met both in person yet? That might be a huge deciding factor if you’re not comfortable with one of them.

    ummm….NICOLE! how is this even a question. haha. personally i would pick her no questions asked. 

    wendypeak lost me with the flash intro and the fifteen clicks it took to get to the actual wedding portfolio; but beyond that, i think nicole’s body of work is more unique while wendy’s is more cliche, cheesy, standard wedding photography. there is nothing special about it. 

    it REALLY is about personal preference though. i just happen to like the artistic, dreamy look so please don’t shoot me for saying that!
