I looked at the photographer you posted, and without saying more, I think you should stick with your original choice.

Our photographer is from out of state and they’ve bent over backwards to create a good working relationship with us. Also, I’ll point out that photographers often see with “new eyes” when they go to an unfamiliar place; sometimes that’s when we do our best work.

Also, why isn’t your photographer making her own travel arrangements? Can you just give her a flat fee?

Crebre… I’m getting awfully familiar with you on these photo boards, haha, Anyway, based on the web site of the photog you posted the link to, I definitely advocate going with the first long-distance photographer you love 🙂

I don’t want to be harsh, but I think there’s really no contest.  Your first choice takes much, much better photos.

my dear crebre, my vote is work with fola. i’m sure she would be able to make it work. are you responsible for finding flights for her?

@crebre: I’m still curious why you (or your assistant) are the one dealing with the flight/car/transport for the photographer. What’s going on there?

Also, the wedding featured by that 2nd photographer is really pretty. Is it possible you’re reacting to what’s IN the photos as opposed to the photos themselves? I caught myself doing that a few times.

I’ve been there Lord only knows. Sometimes you just have too many options when you are actually IN the industry. Remember, you should always go with your first instinct 🙂

Good luck!

Girl, what the heck? How can you NOT go with FOLA!? You have been stalking her for how long? I’m not even going to look at the other site because I know who you need to stick with! You do too. And I know that you know it will be worth it!

I’m flying mine in so I feel your pain, but I know that with anyone else I wouldn’t feel as comfortable and I would always think, I wonder what Tim would have done. And by wedding time the extent of our relationship will be blog comments on each others blogs and the time before we were photogs we were stuck in the Amsterdam airport for 6 hrs with nothing to discuss, awkwardly waiting, sitting on the tile in a hallway. You’ll be OK… I’ve done quite a few every year where I don’t meet them until the wedding day. You do actually get to know each other a bit… and again, follow your heart. It knows. And you know how you shouldn’t do anything less than that in this section of wedding planning.

I think this is an easy decision, and that’s all I’m gonna say about that. :p

Ok, I’m from LA too.  What about Katy Marshall, Studio Tran, Mark Eric, or Matt Hudson?

Aww Crebre. You make me giggle. Ditto what KLP said, I thought the same exact thing – you’ve been stalking Fola forever, changing your mind now will only complicate things. I still stalk my Photog. crush. He’s booked for our day so I’ll have to book him seperately for a shoot after the wedding.

I remember what Randy said on SYTTD “Finding your gown is like meeting the right man. Once you’ve got the right one… that’s it”. Words to live by in my book. 😉
