@jbbs1222:  Hello!  I don’t know if you resolved this yet, but it’s been a month and no replies, so I thought I’d make a suggestion.  A person who’s only shot one wedding is not a professional.  A good rule to live by, is the more times someone uses the word “professional” to describe themselves, the less they probably are.  It can also be difficult to have a friend working with you during anything.  Someone who’s just doing it for fun, or “shot for friends”, may not take it seriously and could be too social and distracted.

It’s a difficult situation to be in.  I’d suggest looking for someone with actual experience who is maybe recommended by a friend, but who you don’t know.

@jbbs1222:  Same boat!  You have no idea how many times Fiance and I argue over who we want as our photographer.  FI looks at the price.  If it’s over our budget, he would veto it.  However, all of his picks I veto because I felt the quality isn’t up to par.

Then we’re arguing over who we somewhat considering!  I had one who was offering 8 hours for the price of 6 and he shut me down.  I was disappointed.  It’s still in the running but no final decision yet.

I’m sure you and your fiance can reach a compromise!  If anything, just show him this board!
