Advice for picking photographers?

So today I went to a bridal show and was on the hunt for photographers. The prices are overwhelming and so are the options. Any advice on how better to narrow the selections after you've weeded out the photographers you do and don't like the looks of? Anything I should be aware of in those bundled package deals? Wary of multiple photographers or video/photography packages? I saw lots of awesome people and also lots of image editing heavy photographers (to my dismay) so I'm hoping to get more education and figured I'd ask you experienced ladies your opinions. :)

 There is so much good advice in this thread!!! I think you will be able to make an easier decision after you meet with each photographer - a photographers style can be linked with their personality! You could also try to get an engagement session thrown in or discounted so you can see what the chemistry is like with that peticular photographer!

I hope your search goes well and you find someone you are comfortable with!

 Wow Kim! Your package sounds amazing!! I have an interview with someone next Sunday I think for a similar package but it is still sadly out of budget for me. I know this is important but... I just don't know. :/ I'm having an off day.

 So today was day 3 of meeting with photographers and I have to say this photog has been our favorite. She was super nice, and we seemed to mesh very well. She's giving us a great deal if we book with her but is allowing us to finish up all our appointments before making a final descion. Her photos are beautiful and seem really pro, she's been doing weddings since 02. My one and only concern is her 6 hours, we can add on another hour for a little more. But both FI and I got the "she's the one" feeling. We know not to jump to conclusions yet but I can't help but feel giddy. :P what do you guys think? I'm still going to meet up with my other options.
