Do you know how many editted images you would get with each?

I see limelight says a minimum of 350 w/ full printing rights, storybook just says “of all retouched proofs”.

I would contact them directly and ask specifically.

Have you met with them? You may or may not like/be comfortable with them.

Do you have the option to add a second shooter with Storybook? Do you think your wedding will benefit from two shooters?

Just looking at their websites I think I prefer the style of Storybook, however, the link to the blog from the Storybook site does not work.  I would say overall I’m not in love with either.

I haven’t looked at the sites, but the deciding factor in photography shouldn’t be the stuff, it should be their personalities.  Schedule meetings with them both, see who you click with more.

I’m concerned that neither of them know how to retouch/edit photos properly. At least the people in Storybook’s photos actually look happy though… make sure you meet the photogs and ask to see two FULL weddings, because based on their websites, I wouldn’t hire either.

@photogestelle:  Are you referring to the Limelight image where the bride looks miserable sitting on the steps? I really didn’t get that image…

@trizol:  I’m from your general area. I’ve seen Limelight’s work, and it’s really not that great. They showcase their best, and that’s as good as it gets. I don’t know much about Storybrook, but I’m also not impressed.

Check out Christine Procratsky Photography (Uniontown, PA). She is so great so work with and takes AWESOME photos!! She literally blogs every event she shoots so you can guarantee consistency. Two shooters. I can pm you prices if you’re interested!

She did my sister’s wedding, my engagement shoot, and she the first vendor I booked for my wedding!! (Plus she’s doing some college graduation shots, future pregnancies, infant photos.. I adore her shots. I will never ever pick another photographer)

Here’s a link! http://christinepocratskyphotography.com/blog/

@lauraminn:  There’s a couple where the couple doesn’t look happy. But even so, the editing is amature at best. I’d say it’s actually really awful. I’d be concerned.

Out of the two I would choose Storybrook

Bad editing consists of many things. Dull and flat photos, unnatural colors, colour washes that are often used to hide improper white balances, orange or over contrasty skin tones, photos that appear too dark or that the whites have no detail left. Lots of these things are results of bad shooting as well. Sometimes it’s hard to know where the problem starts. These are things that mark photographers who don’t know what they are doing.
