    Definitely not the 2nd photographer! Photogs should be fastest contacting you before you have a signed contract, same day or next day is most common. A week is pushing it (but maybe if something came up)… but 2 MONTHS?! That’s embarrassing (for them) to not have sent a simple email about prices. If this is how they treat potential clients, I’d want nothing to do with them. Go with the photographers you met with & loved their work.

    ETA: The 2nd photographer could be going out of business? They sound very shady if the number goes to VM every time & you’re not getting any responses. Very unprofessional! A real pro will not ignore anyone like that!

    the first one has everything you are looking for, the second one will leave you questioning whether you made the right choice if you sign with them

    Being on the same page as your photographer is super important. We chose our because she would skype with us and do whatever for us. I know we’ll get amazing pictures because we can communicate so well.

    Do you even know that the second photographer has your date available?  Could they be avoiding getting back to you because they’re already booked?

    Photography is a lot more than just the photos, it’s about the personal connection.  If you don’t feel like you’re a priority to this other photographer, then to me it doesn’t matter how amazing they are.

    If you LOVE the first photographers pictures, go with them.  But I wouldn’t sacrifice quality just because they’re nice.  If you’re not in LOVE with their pictures, I would keep searching :/
