Personality! We had our first set of engagement picks taken with the “better pic” photographer and you could tell we were uncomfortable. He was very serious blah blah. So then we decided to take on shot on Ms. Personality who we adored, but wasn’t as well know. Our e-pics were 10x better. She made us feel comfortable and like we could ourselves. It was fantastic! Ms. Personality (lol) will be shooting our wedding.

personality. you’re going to be with this person on your entire wedding day, so it’s important that you gel with them. you want to be as comfortable as possible to get the best pictures.

Good question….

Get some references from the shy photographer and call them up! See if these clients clicked with the photog. I honestly believe that good photos are the product of getting along with the clients.

That said… trust your gut. If you don’t think you will get along with the guy, you should pass.

i say personality. If you’re not comfortable with your photography team then its going to come across in your shots, and thats really the true test of ability, isn’t it?

Everyone says personality..but it is not like you hated the 2nd guy. I mean if he is quiet and shy and polite then so be it. I would go with him if hes images are that much better.

 

Quiet and shy is ok….unless you hate the guy and can’t stand his attitude, i say go for the 2nd one.
