I thought I had found photographer and was hoping to book in the next week or two. Well I emailed one more because I loved her photographs as well, but thought she’d be out of my price range. Well turns out both photographers cost the same and I’m completely torn. I was happy with #1 but now I’m second guessing myself.
Any help? Here’s the links
(sorry she doesn’t have many wedding photos on her website, she has a lot more on facebook so I know she’s done them! lol)

It depends on which style you prefer, as well as whether you think you’d get along with them, but for me, it’s #2 all the way.
Also if you thought she would be out of your price range, maybe you think that she is better/more experienced?

I think #2 is a far better photographer than photographer #1. I looked at her FB photos and they don’t seem to be anything special. They seem to lack artistic style. My eye is drawn more to photographer #2, and personally I think you’d be happier with her photographs than #1.
#1 also seems to be heavily photoshopped, and it doesn’t appear that she really has a good grasp on the technical side of photography. The pictures on her website (which I think should be the best of the best to really showcase her work) seem lackluster, and many of them are on par with something I could take with a non-DSLR camera. Plus… I absolutely hate when websites have music (but that has nothing to do with the photographer’s pictures, just a side note of something that rubs me the wrong way).
Honestly, if these photographers are the same price, I’d go with #2. However, I would still meet with both of them, view samples of complete weddings, engagements, etc. and see which one you vibe with better. If you ask to see many samples of full work you’re going to get a better idea of the ability and quality of the photographer.

Thanks you guys! I was learning towards #2. I felt that I had a bond with #1 just from speaking with her a lot, but of course that isn’t the best way to choose a photographer! lol #1 had a little more included (guest book, collage thing), but those really aren’t important to me. #2 sent me a link to a full wedding and engagement session and I really liked them, I just don’t know how to judge photography lol I plan to show them both to my mom next weekend since she is paying for it, and make sure she agrees with my choice. Thanks!
