Off and on scares me! Imagine wondering if your photos are going to be any good or not, no thanks! Enough things to stress about with weddings (especially when family is involved
Just for the purpose of sharing for those ladies who are deciding on photography at the moment (ooh speaking of photography, Alla just emailed me to confirm our photography, whohoo!), we emailed the following (only met with Alla though):
Before I post this list I should just say I liked all the following photographers photos which is why I contacted them, but I am BIG on good customer service and that was really what I was looking for along with costs!
Alla: Obviously she was great since we chose her! $1990 for 5 hours photography, hundreds of prints, all editing, all images on disc and a slideshow set to music. As well as a pre-wedding shoot with all those images on disc.
Zita Kiss: $1340 for 5 hours and all images on a disc. However they took agesss (in my opinion) to get back to my query so I was immediately put off and therefore never looked anymore into them.
Clare: Very well priced and we would have met with her next had we not liked Alla.
Alex Road Photography: I have had my eye on her just in general for a long time, something about her work that I really like. Unfortunately though she was a little more than we wanted to spend (about $2500 without a prewedding shoot I think?). If I hadn't found someone closer to our budget I would definitely have contacted her.
Kate Deagen (Ramsey) aka Studio Kate: I was immediately put off by the fact that her packages and prices she emailed through to me specially state that enlargements MUST be included in the package and she would not give any discounts in lieu. Don't get me wrong, I understand photographers want their work to be printed in the best quality, but I think wedding vendors should be flexible. Prices are reasonable (but a little more than we wanted to spend).
I think that's all! Obviously this is just purely my opinion, everyone is completely different, just thought I'd share.
