Hi ladies I am trying to finalize my photographer and I was curious which one would you choose?
I’ve never had to pick a photog so I’m pretty clueless as to what’s good.
They all have offered me pretty much the same deal.
So, what do you think?

I’m going for a semi-vintage touch but other than that I’m not really particular.

well, if you want semi-vintage, I would say definitely Jason (just from glancing,) but I personally like Stainbrook better.

Of the three I could view, I liked Jason the best.

I was able to look at Carswell phtot’s facebook… I voted for them 🙂

Jason is the best photographer hands down. He makes the best use of light, color, composition, and his photos tell a story beyond a portrait. Breathtaking. I would be curious, though, to see more of his work specific to weddings, and capturing people’s expressions and the full event of the wedding. He certainly nails great aspects of still life, landscape and color, but can he capture groups of people in the moment? I would ask to see a full album of someone’s wedding he shot and make your decision based on that.
Next I would choose Carswell, but I am only basing that off her main page because I cannot access her wedding album (using Safari, not Explorer.) She seems to have a good sense of light and composition as well, and has a knack for getting people’s candid expressions.
I would not consider Stainbrook as that person’s work seems stilted (their main page representations are static, too much shadow, too centered, nothing interesting) and I would not consider Summer at ALL. Her work shows poor lighting choices (washed out wedding gown in direct sunlight, can’t see any detail) and outdated color focused on black and white images…a little behind the times.
Good luck and I hope this is helpful to you!

Is your wedding really next week already?
I actually don’t think any of the ones shown have much wedding experience at all. I’d keep looking.

If these are your only options, I’d go with Jason but ONLY if I could see some wedding work. Being a good portrait and object photographer does not mean you have any clue when it comes to weddings.
