there are a lot more posed photos than action shots. is that what you’re looking for?

i also think some of the photos are overprocessed, but some people prefer that kind of style.

I agree with the above.  It looks like this photographer is very accustomed to studio shots with a lot of backlighting and vignetting, which can be viewed as old fashioned.

I don’t see much wrong with the compositions and exposures.  There are some very nice shots, a few overprocessed, but the base shot is there.  For the money (1700) for full coverage and 1500-2000 photos on CD, I don’t think it’s bad at all.

(he could spend the extra 50 bucks a yr though on zenfolio and get his own domain!)  haha.

Personally I am not a fan. I agree it’s very posed and it seems like 90% of them are all posed. There are a couple cool shots and minimal detail shots it seems so if you’re the kind of bride with lots of DIY.

And the other thing I try to remember is photographers tend to post their best work on their site (you would think!). So if this is his best work…

I personally feel for his quality of work the price is high.

If I were you I would keep looking. In the Tri State Area there are SO many great photographers!

@Gerbera:  I don’t know, he did only choose to post most of the posed shots, but he claims to supply 1500+ images and I doubt all of them are posed.  Perhaps ask to see one of the CD’s to get an idea of what he actually gives to customers.  The photography isn’t bad for that price range IMO, compositions are strong, and exposures are accurate.  I’ve seen much worse in most of the engagement pictures posted on here by real “pros.”

I would also shop around so you can compare for yourself.

i wouldn’t say there is anything too special or unique about this photo.

they seem very posed and unnatural–like he/she has the most experience with shooting in front of a back drop. that’s not really the look i would want to have in my wedding photos!

i say keep looking!

@MamaHusky3:

Are you still at the looking online stage or have you start meeting with photographers face to face already? I must’ve looked at over 4-5 dozens photographers online, emailed extensively with probably 6-7 then finally meeting with 2. We live 8hrs away from NYC so vendor visit time was minimal.

The ones I emailed extensively with I def asked to see wedding albums from start to finish. I wanted to make sure I liked the whole package.And we needed to meet with them to make sure we clicked in person. We’re not photo people so it’s important that we were at ease with our photographer.

Anyway, I just feel like if you were sure this is the photographer you wouldn’t need to ask our opinion.

Photography style is very subjective. What I like might not be what you like and vice versa. I think what’s important is that it’s the right photographer for you & your Fiance.

GL!
