I've been looking photographers for months, and now I've finally narrowed it down to two. Who knew making the actual decision would be sooo hard?! Lol.
I'm hoping someone might have some advice from experience, etc. Or maybe you or someone you know has used either one of these photographers and you can give some feedback. I don't know. I'm just looking for any help I can get.
The two I've narrowed it down to are:
Kristi Wright kristiwrightphotography.com
Mint Photography mymintphotography.com
Both have shot weddings at our venue. Both have gorgeous photos, specifically of weddings at our venue.
Kristi is sooo sweet. I feel like she would be great to work with. She is eager to help, answer any questions and even hear about our planning in general, not just photography wise. She genuinely seems to be excited about the chance to be our photographer and work with us throughout the whole process. Her photos are fantastic and I feel like she would be a great fit for what we are looking for. I love her photos. I love her perspective. I feel like the photos I would get from her would tell "our story" so well. They would be something I would look back on no matter how many years have gone by and be able to relive our day over and over. Which is what I'm looking for!
Mint Photography has gooorgeous photos also. I would almost say if it came down to PHOTOS only, I would say I like Mint's slightly more. Emails with them have been friendly enough and they always answer my questions well. But as far as being as personable as Kristi is, that's where I feel they lack.
Response times from both are great. No complaints there. Their prices are very close. Varying about a couple hundred dollars. Maybe I'm not feeling such a personable touch from Mint yet because I haven't officially hired them? But with Kristi, the interest alone in hiring her perks her up. And I think that speaks volumes.
I just, ah! I'm having such a hard time choosing. Do I choose solely based on photos? Or do I choose a photographer who I think will be a strong asset in not only taking great photos but in the day of the wedding and the planning up to that point?
I appreciate any feedback anyone has. Thank you!
