I like N. Koester photography a million, zillion times more than the first one! Those photos are so much more interesting and beautiful, IMO. If you can afford $700, I’d say that you should definitely go with them!

I would say meet with them, see who you think you would rather work with. Before I found my amazing photographers there was I guy I found in portland and I LOVED his work. Loved it! After meeting with him, I wouldnt have hired him if he was 1/3 of the price!

Based strictly on the galleries I love N. Koester Photography’s work.

Love love love the second one.. You will have the pictures forever. 700 dollars in alot. but I think it’s worth it.

You know, I would ask if you could get any % off (are you booking early?)

Maybe he could cut you a deal, it doesn’t hurt to ask.

I’d say the second one. I would agree that it is important to meet with the photographer though. If you aren’t comfortable with the person taking the photos, the photos won’t turn out great no matter who takes them.

To me, the 1st photog’s work looks very posed. I don’t really see as much creativity there. I didn’t see any unique angles either, its like someone held the camera at eye level the entire time. In her bridal party shots, she takes them from so far away, you can’t see who is who (that’s one of my pet peeves with group photos thou).

I love the 2nd photog’s work. You can definately see they’re creative & original. It looks like they’re more flowy with how the day is going. You can’t see many poses of the same wedding, so when you meet with them, ask if you can view an entire wedding. They have unique editing also, which is awesome, however some photographers charge extra so you may want to ask about that.

However, what style photos do you like? Do you like the ones where they say “go there & smile” & more natural (unedited) photos (go with the 1st)? Or do you like the ones where they take them at extreme angles & a little non-traditional & also edit them (go with the 2nd)?

I think you should meet with the photographers & make sure you & them “click”. You want someone you’re comfortable with. You can have the greatest quality photographer who is also very rude, which can kinda put off the day a little.
