Not to be mean but neither.

1st photographer:

Really? Spot coloring still in this day and age? And what’s with the faded white borders and the images of bouquets on the ground with the couple in the background? That just kills me. I would go to this guy if I were looking to compile a list of clique photos I do NOT want to have in my wedding photos.

2nd photographer:

Seems she shoots more babies than weddings. Enough said.

What is your budget? Both for your wedding overall and for photography

ok @wanderer: that was really unnecessary.  There is a nice way to say anything and your approach is not it.  the OP specifically stated that it’s one or the other so if you don’t like either, don’t vote!

 

@MapleBecky:  I think these are a HUGE improvement over the previous ones you posted (i remember your last thread).  I would go with the 2nd one (with the facebook page).  She seems to understand lighting and composition better than the other photographer and her photos, (although few), seem to be more consistent.  They are also more natural and less cheesy and possy.

@MapleBecky: I voted on your last thread and didn’t realize it had gotten so out of hand. That being said, I feel like you should choose your photographer based on who you and Fiance like the most. It is a huge expense, so which do you feel you like the most?

Out of these I like number one.

For some reason I’m only seeing a few pics from number two…

@wanderer:And seriously, what wedding photos haven’t been done before?

Just noticed you are in Canada. That kind of limits my search. Where in Canada specifically are you in if you don’t mind me asking?

 

@meowkers: I wouldn’t go with 2nd ones unless I see more weddings. It is easy to be consistent if you are posing the shot, which engagement and newborns sessions are pretty much about. Unless you don’t mind the photographer telling you to put the ring on her finger on the altar three times until they get it right ( which I actually witness a photographer do during a wedding I attended ).

@Mrs.tobe: True, most of the “poses” out there are not new, but I guess it’s just my taste then when I say that I truely hate those shots that the #1 photographer does. If that is your style, then go for it. Photos are subjective after all. Just because I don’t like it doesn’t mean it’s bad.

@MapleBecky: Do you feel number two is reliable? Anyone you know used them before? Can you call and speak with photographer number two and voice concerns about wait time? (Would you like to answer 20 questions?? lol)

The added engagement shoot would definitely help sway my decision.

@wanderer: I didn’t say it was “my style” per say. Just kind of felt that you came off a little abrasive to the OP, especially considering she had a hard time on the last thread she had about photogs.

 

I’ll just agree with @Meowkers:

“There is a nice way to say anything and your approach is not it.”

@wanderer: please understand that MANY clients still request special effects that photographers might not LIKE, but we do them because the customer is always right. I had one bride ask me to selective color her bouquet-not my fave or my style, but she paid so she gets what she wants.

@MapleBecky: #1 is my preference. Sorry you’re having such a rough time with this.

@MapleBecky: You have lots of time yet. I went through weeks of crying trying to figure out who to pick. We skimped on some areas to get more $ for a photographer. Once I calmed down and focused, I was able to look at things with fresh eyes.

Remember that everything is negotiable. Anyone unwilling to negotiate isn’t living in today’s market.

You’ve got plenty of money to get someone who can do it the way you want. Skip the darn photo albums and extras so that you can focus your $ where it counts.

Lots of people take great photos but I’d like to suggest you meet with them in person. I met last week with two super professional photographers and we left their offices uninspired.

The last thing I’d like to suggest is if you are feeling vulnerable, don’t post on that day. Take a breather and come back. The bees can sting when you least need it 😉
