    I also like the second photographer’s editing better.  Ultimately you will need to go with the photographer you feel most comfortable with.  Choosing a photographer was easily the most difficult choice I had to make throughout the entire planning process.  I think they are very similar in style and you would be happy with either one.  🙂

    I think that the second photographer has a lot better quality pictures.  Their editing is actually more minimal than the first.  The first is giving their pictures a more vintage look – which I think most of the bees here agree will probably look dated in a couple of years.

    However, the fact that the second photographer won’t give you the images is a big downfall.  So although I think that the second photographer has better quality, I might be inclined to say to go with the photographer that will hand over the images.

    I would ask the second photographer if he would be willing to make sure he definitely includes photos of all of the important moments. Say that he can have final cut as long as you get at least one of each of the following shots. And then hand him a list. See how he reacts. If he knows he can produce all of the shots you want, then I don’t see a problem. I would only be upset if I got the photos back and realized I didn’t have a particular photo I wanted. Especially if he had taken it and it just wasn’t up to his standards.

    Honestly the norm in wedding photography is not to give your clients free reign on selecting their own images.  You hire a photographer who you trust to capture the essential moments.  If you need to look through their images to feel confident you are getting a quality product then I firmly think you haven’t found the right photographer yet.  Furthermore if a photographer is willing to show anything less than their best work I think there is something wrong.
