I think the 2nd photographer looks a lot better honestly.  They seem much more professional to me.  Good luck!

Definitely the second one – I think it’s very worth it to switch.

I like the second photographer.  The post production in the first photographer seems a little basic.

That being said, I would ask the second photographer to show me their work from one wedding.  It’s easy to say their portfolio is better but that’s because they’ve pulled the best pictures from multiple events.

I would go with the second one!  I personally love the photojournalistic style much better anyway.

I like the 2nd one as well…and yes absolutely meet with her. Almost all photograhers are really great at being able to sit down and talk to you to get a feel of what you want and what your style is…and is you want a few more candid shots, I bet she can 🙂

Good luck!

The first photographer looks as though a relative took the pictures on the sidelines.  The second photographer has a better feel of angles and experience.  Good luck with your decision!

It’s really hard to decide because their websites are so different! You get to see all the pictures from the wedding from Photog 1, but only a they best of the best of the pictures from all the weddings of Photog 2. I think you need to see a couple books of proofs from start to finish from Photog 2 before you make your decision. I did see a couple of really good shots from Photog 1 (a couple of detail shots and some with bokeh). I’m pretty sure Photog 1 could pay someone to make his website look just as good as Photog 2’s and he could pick out just as many great photos.

I’d meet with them both again and discuss exactly what style you want. Personality of the photographer is also very important.

I didn’t even look at the links, I just want to say – BE HAPPY with your photographer! It’s soooo important! That’s the biggest mistake I made, I used someone I had doubts about b/c they were less expensive and I regret it SO much! My pictures aren’t even printable. 🙁

Just do whatever you have to do to make sure that you’ll be happy with those photos! They can’t be done over!
