    I think websites would help us help you decide. 🙂

    LB is correct, we need to see their work and know their prices to give any kind of reasonable advice.  By an “online album” do you mean a website?  #1 sounds like they have more experience with weddings and is a full timer.  Nothing wrong with part timers, but some of them don’t have the same grounding in the industry as full time professionals.

    To me, neither of them look like they take a photojournalistic approach. I’d keep looking. If you were going to choose between the two, I’d go with 1 since the quality of the photos is almost exactly the same and 1 is cheaper.

    keep looking. i didn’t see any non-posed photos for #1, and #2 doesn’t seem to have a very developed eye for photos.

    I like the photos from the second website better but the quality is pretty much the same so I’d just go with the first photographer since it’ll be cheaper (:

    @MapleBecky:

    You’re the one that has to look at these pictures after the wedding, if you think they’re good then that’s what matters (:

      I hate to be a gear snob because at one point I had a 40D and it’s a great camera, but that is an older model and since then 3 models have come out (50D, 60D, and 7D).  Also, these are consumer grade cameras, not full frame professional cameras.  There is nothing wrong with this though if you like the work, it’s quality, and they are not charging professional prices.  Just a FYI.

     

    OP…..if you like the images, don’t listen to people here, you have to be the one that likes the style.  Honestly, for the price point of #2 ($600) I don’t think you will find much better.  If she is willing to work with you, offers good CS, has backup equipment, and is within your budget, I would consider using her.

    I wouldn’t book either until you meet them in person. The chemistry between you and the photographer is very important. Regardless of how they shoot, if you don’t feel a connection, it’s going to show on the photos. Just my 2 cents. Go with your gut in the end 🙂
