    I think it would help people give you advice if they know what your budget is (which I assume both of these will fit into).  It is really difficult to gauge someone by looking at a dozen pictures.

    Beyond that, I think the best advice (for all these threads) is as follows:

    1.  Ask to see a wedding shot from start to finish (not just the 20 best images).  Get an idea of the coverage you will be getting.  Are there any missed shots?  Are the images edited cleanly in a style that you like?  Are there any segments that appear to be missing?  Are the images pleasing to eye?  Are the colors accurate?  Are they crisp and sharp?

    2.  Meet the photographer, see how you click with them

    3.  Discuss backups, both for the photographer and their equipment.  Make sure your day is covered in case something happens to the photographer or their gear.  See what each offers

    4.  Compare the deliverables vs price for both.  See what more closely matches your needs

    5.  Read the contract, make sure you are comfortable with everything in there and it is complete.

    I voted for #1. I’m not a pro, but #2 looks a bit overly photoshopped for my taste.

    I’m a pro wedding photographer, and I would go with 1. I love the stuff she has posted. I’d ask to see a full wedding though, just to make sure! 🙂
