"I used to be a wedding photographer...but that was in film era....IMO a sociable photographer is not an artist but a business man. U will see some photographer going around busy taking candid and loving moments while others go around chat, talk and pass namecards to potential customers trying to break ice producing politically correct wedding shots.
Nowadays if u go into digital, there are really no skills involved...they basically snap all the way then go back use PS to enhance everything. As long as they are good photo editor, I'm sure they can produce good results. For this kind of photographer u may want to hire those from bigger studios who can afford better macs and software.
U can also go clubsnap and look around for photographers...there are many of them there with works to reference from."
How would you feel, if you're a wedding professional?
I wonder about what could possibly make him/her pass judgement as such.
