    @milesbella:  Her portrait work isnt bad but that doesn’t mean anything.  I don’t see any weddings on her blog and just a few pictures when I click weddings….so I have to ask, how many has she even done?

    I like some of the shots and the candid style, but some are very dark (especially some of the wedding photos at the top of the page). I’d ask if she can do anything about that.

    @milesbella:  In the end, you have to like the images, not everyone else.  It is good to get feedback from otheres, but photography is subjective.  Look at each picture, and then look at about 10 other photographers portfolios.  You should start to see what appeals to you and what doesn’t.  A particular style doesn’t make a photographer bad or not, and if the photographer is bad, you should be able to see it even if you are a bit of a novice.  Remember, don’t just go by facebook, and websites, meet the photographer and ask to see a real gallery or album from a typical wedding.  Undertstand the level of retouching you will be getting,etc.  In the end you are paying for piece of mind that your photographer will deliver quality images in any lighting condition and supply full coverage with minimum or no missed shots. 

     

    Also, really take a step back and look at things, I mean a picture of feet may look cute coupled with other images on a blog, but how useful is that picture to someone?  Really?

    At $100 bucks an hour, she seems like a steal. Good solid portfolio. I would proceed to “send me a full wedding you shot” phase.

    I agree with USER876. This really isn’t about find a good photographer. Its about discovering your taste in photography, and selecting someone based upon your new aesthetic.

    Let us know who else you check out!

    Best,
