Yeah, I know; All I post is about photographers. I feel like I will never find the right combo of style and budget fit. I am stressing about it especially since we are a dark-skinned African-American couple and I am afraid some one is gonna make us look jacked up. Please help with this round…Im sure I will be back posting some more 🙁
The package I want is around 5k
Package I want is 6k ( comparative items to the other photog’s package)
Do you guys like one over the other?
Thanks in advance!

They’re both lovely, but I happen to like the first one a little better…her photos just have this dreamy, romantic quality to them, and it seems like she works better with natural light (I might be totally off on this one, this is just what my amateur’s eye sees!).

Thanks hilsy! I see what you mean about the first photographer.

It’s a difficult choice but think i would probably choose Procopio though i really like both styles. There is something about the photo subjects in the first photographer’s blog that i don’t like. I can’t really tell you what exactly it is, i just think that a lot of the scenes of her wedding photos don’t say wedding to me, they look more like pictures she could have taken on any other day. If i paid 5k for a photographer i don’t want a photo of me holding an apple 😉 I pay for a wedding photographer and there are many photos that look lovely but i just can’t see and feel the emotions. But that’s just me and everyone has a different taste.

The difference I noticed between the two photographers was that L Hewitt’s photos are more photojournalistic, which is a more relaxed and minimally processed look. They also seemed to use more natural light. Procopio seems much more posed and stylized to me and seems to use a lot of studio lights. I think you just have to determine which style you prefer.

Procopio pictures seem a little blown out, which will not be a good fit with your darker skin. I think that you should go with Hewitt.

thanks Kate! what does blown out mean?

@Aubergold: You really can’t go wrong here. I agree, Hewitt is dreamier, less posed.
Procopio is more stylized and crisp.
It’s going to come down to listening to your heart on this one. Try this: email some of your closest friends and have them give you five adjectives to describe you/your style.
I’d say #1 is fun, quirky, unique, elegant, candid
#2 is elegant, style, hip, sophisticated, vogue
(I find both elegant, btw!)
ETA: I’m not seeing any blow-outs. Not to argue — as I’m not on a calibrated screen at the moment — but he does seem to handle white dresses well. Look at the seperation of the bride on the white background). Darker skin can handle blow-outs better usually — white skin goes Casper.

omg that is the best advice ever; I really like your approach. I am definitely more elegant (ahaha), stylish, hip, sophistcated, vogue and I’ll throw urban in there for good measure. I am not quirky and like a certain amount of control over how I look (i.e., posed). I love you 🙂

Love the first. The images look clean and crisp and they jumped off of the page. Love the first!

I prefer the 1st one because I dont like posed pictures I like the almost journalistic approach of the 1st one..
