Help me choose a photographer!
Aaah so torn between 2! I love the style of the second one more but I think we get more for our money with the first? I love that the first one includes a video. Something I never ever considered until she sent me a video of a couple she'd shot at our venue last year and it was amazing and I'd love to have one! If I could combine the two so the style of the second one with the video and all day coverage of the first I'd be rubbing my hands together but it's not an option obviously. Our budget is 1500 so they both come in under, but my fiance still begrudges paying this much.
Claire has worked in our venue before and is generally a really lovely person from what I can tell through our emails. It's obvious that she does it because she loves it and not for money, and she really loves getting to know her couples. Here's what we'd go for:
all day coverage
USB presentation box
slideshow of images
selection of 6×4 prints (my faves)
phone app featuring your images
alternative wedding video
She's said she can come down on the price a little as well to make my fiancé more comfortable!
Zoe is also really friendly, and seems to really like the sound of our wedding. I love love love her style so much! And she fits in budget as well! The only downside is no video like with Claire. Update - I asked her if she'd be able to do any video work at all and she said she can't but she would offer us an engagement shoot included in the price to "sweeten the deal" in her own words!
