    You’re exactly right on those. Bill’s pics are def more beautiful, more display worthy, in a way, but there’s more emotion in Corey’s. Go with personality. You’ll have great pics with either, pick the one you get on with.

    From the small amount of time I spent looking at the sites, I think you may feel like Bill’s photos show less emotion because the photos he makes most obvious on the site are his portraits, while the other photog puts candids up first. The portraits you have so much more control over lighting, staging, etc – hence the magazine feel. But you don’t get the same emotion from them as you would a group of bridesmaids popping a champagne cork, or a mom zipping up a wedding dress, like the other photographer presents first.

    If it were me – I would ask Bill for examples of more canded shots. See if the emotion pops for you more there. If it does, I would go with him. His flash work and lighting is really interesting, and he has some serious post-processing skills (make sure his post processing is included in your package – you def want it!)
