    I much prefer juxta.

    To me it seems these two photographers have very different styles. Chantra is very photojournalistic. Just capturing moments throughout the day. Whereas Juxta is much more artistic style. So that’s really your personal choice as to which style you want your wedding to be photographed in.

    Also, personally I don’t like the editing style of the Chantra photographer. Too many washed out pictures.

    I like JuxtaPhotos better because they seem to be more my style..a little bit more artistic, plays around with cool angles, etc. I also don’t like how Photog #1 sets a limit on how many photos you get..

    @missmess:  Both seem to use a heavily edited style – that yellowing, soft vintage-y look.  If you like that, that’s totally fine!  I personally do not. From what I saw, it appears that Juxta uses less overediting so that would be my preference.  But I don’t think either photog is bad… it just depends on what style you’re going for.

    Also I didn’t compare price at all.  That might help me answer the question.

    ETA: since you know you want awesome photos and are presumably ok with spending the money on them…. I’d keep looking for more options.

    @missmess:  If he’s a pro photog, he’s used to many brides considering him and then ultimately choosing someone else, and trust me, he doesn’t want you to pick him just because you feel pressure to do so… he’d much rather work with brides that LOVE his work and his style.  So please don’t feel bad choosing someone that YOU love.

    @missmess:  Oh just wanted to add…. since you’re looking in Minnesota….

    I have never met her and know nothing about her other than that I love blog-stalking her… I think she does amazing work in the natural, bright light style that I love to use as well.  Minnesota is sadly nowhere near me…. but when I heard that I did think of this photog.  I don’t think you could go wrong with her!

    Agree with others its personal style. 

    Personally I like Chantar because I like more lifestyle type photos; also more saturated/bright colors; whereas Juxta is much more artistic and colors are more dramatic/vampy.

    Juxtaphotos seems to have lightly crisper images. That’s my style. They just seem a little bit better than the other choice.

    # 1 is okay but the VSCO filter overuse is killing me. You can’t just take a so so photo then throw a filter on it. Ugh

    # 2 I can’t even see because their site is flash based and I’m on an Ipad. One of my big pet peeves haha!:)

    Both are good just down to personal style. I prefer Juxta but I personally wouldnt choose him cos id want more natural light less artsy. To each him own
