Default Ways to groom a Yorkie?

Mike and I are butting heads about how we would like Cooper to be groomed. He doesn't like long hair and wants Cooper to be shaved naked. Mike hates the long hair on the side of the face and the beard. When Cooper drinks it soaks up into his beard and then he drips on Mike, which Mike is not fond of.

I refuse to shave his face down because I don't want him to look ugly. LOL So I'm trying to find a cut that would be a compromise for us both. It doesn't have to be the traditional Yorkie cut, but I'd like to get as much hair off of his face while not making him look like a little ugly rat dog.

Any suggestions?

What I did last time was clip his body with a #7, scissor his face, and put a #10 on his ears. Basically, this (only these pictures were taken after he had grown out some, not right after his groom):

Mike wants this:

I refuse. LOL

I was thinking maybe something like this modified Schnauzer cut? Only with the legs shaved, too.
