    I prefer Summer Lily, but it’s your wedding! But they both look great.

    I only had a quick scan but I prefer sung blue. The pictures are nice and crisp with good colour. I think the other one looks a little wishy washy.

     Really like sung blue. Photos are clear and detailed, nice angles. The other looks…idk what would be the correct description. Faded? Washed out seems accurate. Not really a fan of photos where it looks like some of the color has been drained.

    I voted Sung Blue as they’re brighter and more crisp. I do however like the Summer Lilly ones too, just not as much. Which is the most expensive one?

    handbaglover222 :  I’m a wedding photographer, and I prefer Sung Blue. Their editing is more consistant (although a little cool for my taste). I’m a bright/clean editor myself, but Summer Lily continually blows out her white’s and there’s a loss of detail.

    handbaglover222 :  Sung Blue. Better lighting and editing. Summer Lily looks washed out.

     The first one does look a little washed out and the images hurt my eyes a little. Sung Blue has beautiful photos!

    handbaglover222 :  The “out of focus” background is the style, it’s refferred to as “depth of field”. It’s the style and the sign of a skilled photographer. We call that shooting “wide open” and takes skill to photograph at those settings and have your subject (the bride/groom, couple, etc) propely in focus. You get that more with close up photos vs photos farther away. I’m sure you could ask your photographer to get a few more photos of the manor house with a higher aperature so that it’s all tack sharp – but honestly that’s a really old school and traditional way of photographing. It’s also the least flattering settings, especially with skin tones.

    Snug blue! The photos are a bit softer and I like the angles they use better 🙂
