    I would go with #1 … if they are the same price, you get more bang for your buck!  #2 seems more photojournalistic though, if that’s what you really want (which I personally love!).

    I need to know prices before I could give you an opinion, BUT if they are the same price, or close in price … #1 is the best because it offers you more.

    I guess it would depend on how important the album were to you. To me, I would pick the first because of the photobooth, the album wouldn’t really matter to me cuz I could make my own. But the photobooth would sway me. It would also depend on the price between the two, for me. But I’m assuming that is already being considered, so my vote is for #1

    I like option 2. I just don’t really like the feel of the photographs from number one but I love number two’s photograph!

    i think they both look great.  Although, even though they are the same price, I would not just pick the first one because you get more stuff.  I would pick the one you are leaning towards – there has to be a reason (something you like about their photos more, you jived well with them in person….).  The stuff you get extra in #1 – photobooth, 2 hours, + album – are not really important IMO.  Like MrsSl82be said, you could do a nice album anywhere (and probably include more pic if you DIY).  

    Also, i would think that 2 photographers is better than 1 photographer & 1 assistant.

    I prefer #2. #1 just doesnt seem to capture the corect exact moments to me, and I dont really like the lighting in #1’s photos. #2 I think takes really beautiful photos.

    @MsBrooklynA:  i think one photographer is good too. I just thought that was the only true advantage between the two packages. I don’t think photobooths are a big deal, albums can be done anywhere, and 8 hours is plenty.  So in terms of “bang for your buck”, i thought the second package was better.  But if you are leaning towards #1, then i also think one photographer plus assistant will be awesome too. (that’s what i had and the only thing that went wrong was i didn’t budget enough time for bridal party  photos – which you are not going to do!)

    i REALLY like the pictures from #2 better. #1 looks like there wasnt much editing on many, looks too amature
