I say the first once b/c you get an album. Is it only ONE album? Bc if so then I may lean towards the second one. Does she do albums? If so, how much does she charge?

 

My photographer is $3700 for all that your first photographer is giving you PLUS 2 parent albums so I say her price (your first one) is still decent

I say if the second photographer is less expensive AND you have seen your work and you like it then I would go with her.

I know someone having more years of experience is always a plus but sometimes those just starting out are going to work really hard to prove themselves if that makes sense.

How are we supposed to help you if we haven’t seen examples of the photos?  People get so caught up in what one package versus the next one comes with that they sometimes lose sight of the fact that if you aren’t in love with the photographer’s work you won’t care about the stuff in the end.

Experience can be important in weddings.  A photographer that has been doing it 3 or more years has a big advantage over a photographer who has only shot one season.  Commercial photography has nothing to do with weddings though, I wouldn’t let that fact sway you.

#1 definitely

the second one will be great in about two or three years when she resolves a few technical issues and learns to pose better.

ALWAYS go with the more experienced photographer. Alllwaaayyys. Weddings aren’t something that someone can wake up and do one day. Photog #2 might have nice p hotos, but #1 has a decade of experience in weddings. He/she can anticipate the problems that could arise and respond appropriately. I think #1 is a much safer bet.
