We’re pretty set on our photog, but I’m really nervous about the decision and would like opinions from any of you who would be kind enough to give them (professionals too, please!). Price-wise they’re pretty similar, so I really just want to know if you love/hate any of them, and any other opinions you have – be brutally honest please!
Thanks in advance!

I would ask to see a full wedding gallery from each to gauge what you may get back. It’s easy to post your best pictures on your website but you want an overall feel of what you will get from your day. The best way to do that is to see a full gallery.

Thanks Kate, I do have galleries for them, but not being a photographer I also was hoping for some second opinions from professionals, and the more artistically inclined. I know it will only be their best work on these sites, but if someone’s a total hack or brilliant, it might still show through, right?

I’m not a photographer or artistically inclined, but for what it’s worth, they seem to have different styles. The first one I really liked, but mostly because they are my style of photographer, relaxed, country. The second one seemed to excel at hip, urban shots. The third seemed to be a mix of the two. I think they are all pretty good.

The styles of each of these photographers seems super different, and it depends what you’re looking for. I’m not as drawn to BJenright – something about the coloring in those photos is off. I myself would choose Pennance – I love those photos and think they’ll do a great job! I’m not a professional, but that’s my first instinct! Good luck!

I really appreciate the opinions, and the total-layman perspective is just as welcome as others. A lot of what you guys are saying is helping me clarify my own thoughts on these three – keep ’em coming!

I don’t love any of them, to be honest. 🙁
Looking through the blogs of the real weddings, I think all three of them had a problem with harsh light/sunlight. On the blog, several of the people shown needed more skin retouching.
I think they’re all about equal in skill.

Thanks kwynn! I did notice that issue, but it was way worse with some other photogs we looked at. There will definitely be some pics being taken in bright summer sun – is there any way to talk to them about this, or do I just have to cross my fingers? I think at my price point no one will be perfect, so we’re going with style/comfort-level/trust.
