The hunt for a photographer is officially winding down. I have appointments to meet with the two finalists. Both have great reviews online and seem to have decent portfolios. I know there are hundreds of photographers out there, but these two caught my eye. I would love your feedback.
Molly Conner – http://www.mollyconnor.com
She seems to have a fun personality based on the emails we have swapped. She has a very distinct style/brand and I dig that!
According to her blog, she quit her job in Feb 2011 to do photography full time. So she is still slightly new, but not brand new.
M.E.G. – http://www.megweddingphotography.com/
She and her husband shot my best friend’s wedding. I know for a fact that she does good work and that she is personable and professional.
My only concern with using her is that I don’t want my wedding pictures to be too similar to my best friend’s pics. Obviously our weddings are completely different, but I kind of like the idea of a fresh eye. But that is also more risky!

@MelBel: I think I like Molly Connor’s style better. Her images were sharp, classic but also a touch of photojournalistic. I also went through her boudoir pics and they are fantastic.
M.E.G. had some beautiful shots as well, but I wasn’t blown away but their wedding photos. They did something I loathe ( so this is purely personal taste), but I do not like the angled camera shot.. where you have to slightly turn your head to see the image straight on.
Either way– I think you will get gorgeous photos, but I would choose Molly Connor over M.E.G.

Molly Conner seems to have an eye for the “story” shots, if you get what I mean. For that, I would prefer hers. Other than that on the technical aspects of the shots I would call them equally competent.

I like Molly better. I hate when photographers have the b&w picture then they isolate a color and have it stick out…M.E.G. did this and I just dislike it.

I think you won’t go wrong with either one. Just based on the images on the websites I like Molly better. You might want to meet with both photographers in person to see if one personality fits better than the other.
