    I admit I like the more expensive Blue Pearl the most (love).  I do think that the photographer should know that your Fiance is the groom, because that’s going to be one hell of a shock for her if not; and I think I’d be a bit confused if he hadn’t said anything.

    Anyway.  My second choice would be Paul Routon Jr.

    I don’t like Randi Underwood (I don’t get a vibe from his photos) and I feel a bit “meh” about Megan Hile (although I think she’d be great for other things just not a wedding).

    That’s my opinion anyway. 🙂

    @SweetHoneyBee:  I’m all for photography.  And I do think it’s one of my “must-haves” but if it doesn’t work with your budget then perhaps it’s best to go with an alternative?

    BUT I think you should get an actual quote first (as opposed to just looking at her rates); she may give you a discount without you asking.  Since she’s a “friend” I it may be easier to be honest and say “you’re just a little out of our price range”, that way you’re not asking for a discount but if she realises you can’t afford her she might have a kind heart (since she knows you).

    Does that make sense?  I feel I’m just blabbing a lot these days.

    I like Blue Pearl and Paul Routon. Go with the one that is cheaper. IMO Underwood is too classic (boring) wedding, and I’m sorry to say, the photos are a bit like an amature with an expensive camera. Megan Hile looks like she focuses on family portraits and for a wedding you may want to have someone able to do photojournalism too (totally different skills sets). Good luck picking!

    The photographers definitely read as most expensive to least in their talent levels.

    Your friend is more expensive for a reason – i’d definitely pick her over the others. She is actually the only photog i’d let do my wedding out of the ones listed!!
