I think your best bet is to hire someone with the shooting/editing style you love, rather than asking a photographer to change the way they do things. This is coming from the perspective of a photographer – we all edit the way we do for different reasons and consider that our signature. Of course I wouldn’t say 100% no to someone who wanted me to shoot/edit differently, but I might think twice about working with them if it sounded like they were looking for something that wasn’t my style at all.

Have you looked at the Wedding Photojournalist Association database? You might find someone more your style there – http://www.wpja.com/

 

Good luck!

@aquaoracledos: If she has a lot of examples of pictures that you do like, then I would be less concerned. Maybe sit down with her and show her editing that you like and don’t like. See what she says. If she gets defensive, then move on. If you’re on the same page, then you’re good to go. I think this becomes a bigger problem when there are very few examples of what you DO like, so you’re asking her to shoot in a different style.
