So the person who didn’t want to pay $600 for wedding photos ended up going with this person I believe:
I’m not sure what’s going on with some of those senior portraits. The one kid on the purple background has an OOF mouth in some shots and harsh shadows galore. Those also seem to appear in a lot of indoor wedding photos (harsh shadows). Seems like this person has nice equipment (good DOF and crisp shots) but not the experience or know-how to make it really pop. Seems just kinda average.
