@kn8973:  Have you been able to see a full wedding’s worth of photos from him?

The facebook link didn’t work, but I looked briefly at her website. Some of the photos are good, but it worries me that she reused 1 photo twice (shoes w/ ring on them) in is set of 10 or so photos for the site, and the group photo isn’t well focused.

Usually photographers put their best photos on their website, so I’d want to make sure to see a few “full weddings” to make sure the range of photos you would get for a wedding will be what you really want (and in focus, etc).

@kn8973:  Photography is really a personal preference so it’s really up to if you like the style.  I agree with KatNYC, you should ask for a full wedding… there really arent enough pictures on her website and facebook to get a good idea of her work.  If I had to judge from just what I saw on the the site though, personally I would not use her.  I expect the web album to be the best of their best and blow me away, and none of the pics did that for me.  A few looked too dark and the rest was just ok.

@kn8973:  10 photos is not a “full wedding”. Tell her you don’t need to see one at your venue, you just need to see the full product delivered to another couple. So something older is fine. 

Just to get an idea of how many photos you will get for the coverage and what the usability of those photos are.

Also the FB link is still saying “page not found” for some reason.

The second website is better.  I still don’t get photographers who don’t have actual blogs.  Love Lee’s just opened up to their Facebook page. Facebook is not a blog!  Also her website template isn’t really doing justice to her work, the images look pretty pixelated and out of focus when they are on a larger monitor.  But the second photographer blows away the first one in my opinion.  Asking to see a full wedding is really good advice, especially for photographers that appear less established.

Are you looking for someone in Houston? I have a personal friend who is a professional photographer in the Houston area and is FANTASTIC and reasonably priced (in my opinion)

I agree with PPs.  Some of the photos were good, but some weren’t, and if those are the 10 she chose to post on the website, that would worry me, as I expect them to be the best, too.

I like the second link you posted much better (love lee photography).  They have some photos that wowed me, which I think is important.

You should broaden your search if you are having a hard time. Most photographers will travel. You should check out Blackerby Photography. I wanted to use them but they were out of our price range. I can’t remember what it was exactly.
