I heart the Hive and I am once more in need of its fabulous advice! We have a deposit down on our photographer already (200 for a 1200 package) BUT we had a e-shoot with her last summer that did not go so well (pictures were poopy looking, I blame some of it on the wet weather moments beforehand, but the rest was just eh). She is a sweetheart, but recently I’ve been looking into another photographer since I really crave the great, well-lit and modern pics that I see online all the time! Here is my options.
Photog A (Original)
Already paid 200 for this person
Hasn’t impressed me so far with pics
Very very nice and would def be unobstrusive on wedding day
Didn’t give much direction on E-pics (we are smiling at the camera in every one)
Would hate to fire
Deal includes 300 dollar album credit, 100 pic proof book, 6 hours of coverage, two photographers (the other is her hubs though, who is not a professional photog), and a combination of 2 8x10s or 4 5x7s or 6 wallets.
Photog B (Prospect)
Have only spoken on phone with
Fantastic website. Gorgeous proofs (sent me a full album link)
Have not met in person, thus don’t know if we will clash or not
Slightly cheaper so losing deposit on photog A would not affect much
Deal includes wedding album on dvd (300-600 pics), copyright, 6 hours, her and an assistant, plus 2 8x10s
What do I do?!!? Should I go with someone I never met? Has anyone had to (nicely) fire their vendors before?
