Photography is the most important aspect of our wedding to us but we’re having so much difficulty narrowing down a photographer. I know some of their styles are different ie Cliff Mautner/Susan Stripling/Angelica Glass is more dark/artistic/dramatic while Heather Waraksa/Karen Wise is more airy/romantic/classic. They’re all so talented, we can’t decide. We would appreciate any help!
Here are the photographers we’re considering:
1) Ron Antonelli (Brian Dorsey Studios – on the highest end of our budget):
2) Cliff Mautner (no second shooter):
3) Angeilca Glass:
4) Karen Wise:
5) Heather Waraksa:
6) Todd Laffler (option to hire second shooter):
7) Susan Stripling (no second shooter):

Based on their portfolios, my choice would be Heather Waraksa. Beautiful style and editing, particularly the b/w’s. It all comes down to personal preference though obviously.

I like Heather as well. She has a bit of a vintage touch to her work which Im a fan of. We have a similar style. I love some of her fashion portraits.

I’m tied between Heather, Todd and Susan!

They are all spectacular!!! They all have different styles though… It sounds like it’s really up to your personal preference.
Personally, I am a fan of Angelica Glass. I love her photojournalistic style. But I also love Heather’s trendy style and Susan’s dramatic photos.

Who did you end up going with? I am torn between Heather and Karen Wise. I think Todd’s work is very strong and super emotional but almost too intense for me to take.

I’d like to know who you chose too. There were a couple of photographers on your list that looked really great! I already chose G.E. Masana in case you’re still looking because I think he’s amazing too and should be included in your list.
Everyone’s talking about him! Here’s an article from Bridal Guide about his style

Susan Stripling is very well known and highly regarded in the photography world. Heather is good but not quite the same level of artistry stripling is on IMO.

Susan Stripling. If you can aford her, her work is beautiful. She’s well known within the industry and, IMO, is a true atrist at what she does.

Can I ask what your budget is for photography? They all look amazing. Who did you decide on?
