    I would choose Michele. Her work seems a bit more artistic/frame worthy and the quality of the editing is quite a bit better, in my opinion.

    I would definitely pick Michele – that portfolio has more light and life to me.  I like those a lot more.

    FutureMrsDM:  I prefer the first, but it’s very difficult to say without seeing a full wedding by either.

    It’s a toss up for me so I did not vote.  Both seem to capture great moments and I like both of their styles.  If everything is equal then go with the one whose personality jives the best with you and your FH.  I can’t see you being disappointed in either photographer’s work.

    I’m surprised people like michele’s editing better? I think Julie’s use of light and color is 10x’s better. (I’m a photographer as well.)

    but really, you should meet with both and pick the person whose personality you like better if you’re this torn between them.

    I really like Julie.  Michele’s work looks really stock-image to me, whereas Julie has some very iconic photos.

    I like Michelle’s shooting style better. More creative angles, everything is centered. Everything looks more aristic vs point and shoot.

    FutureMrsDM:  As a wedding photographer myself – I prefer Michele. All that being said, I not a huge fan of the fact that the opening shot on her website is a ring shot where the focus is off. The center stone is not in focus, which shows that either she doesn’t always nail focus, or her attention to detail is lacking. I wasn’t over impressed with Julie, but I don’t think she’s a bad photographer. I think Michele has a more aesthetically pleasing website, which probably helps. Either way, you should see a COMPLETE wedding from both of them.

    FutureMrsDM:  okay, I like Julie because she has a blog filled with work! You can see her style in many different settings and I like that. Michele has better pictures on her website..but no blog. That concerns me a little. Anyone can put up 30-40 of their best shots in a wedding work album. I wish she had a blog.

    They both have nice work.

    If I’m being nit-picky I think Julie sometimes suffers from color balance being slightly off, and Michele seems to overuse a glow effect and I saw tilted horizons in both of their work.

    I personally feel more personality from Julie’s work, Michele has very nice images but they lack some emotion for me.
