Just by what you’ve stated in this post, it should definitely be the first one! There are two key factors when dealing with any wedding day vendors: comfort with their skill and responsiveness. From what you’ve said, the first photog is not only responsive, you both feel like you can truly open up to her. So important! I hope this helps! Let me know if I can be of any further assistance!

From what you describe, they DON’T seem like they have similar styles. Who pictures do you like the BEST? If it’s really 50/50, I’d honestly go with the most responsive. The #1 turn off in my book regarding vendors is those who take forEVER to get back to you, I think it’s completely unprofessional (in my head I’m thinking “gee you don’t even have my money yet and you won’t contact me, what’s it going to be like when you DO”).

I would go with the one you feel more of a connection to. Any way you can meet with them in person? I agree with PP that said responsiveness is key!

It sounds like you have pretty much answered your own question.  Obviously you favor #1, so I would book that one immediately.  Go with your heart!  From an outside view, I can see where your heart is here.

Have you viewed WHOLE weddings by each ( at least 50-100 images from a single wedding ) ?      I’m a photographer and I HIGHLY recommend doing this !    You may have already done so,    but I really think viewing whole weddings shows a photographers true work and shows it more acurately than just viewing highlights from a bunch of different weddings.

You really can!        I was hoping you maybe hadn’t yet and that would be the deciding factor.      If both of their whole weddings look great and their you like both style/price/personality,  sometimes it really is just a matter of choosing.       There can be a lot of vendors in an area who would all do a great job,   so you might have to just pick ( probably not the most helpful advice ) !
