If you want beautiful photography, call Mr. Coates. He does some unbelievable shots and they are just amazing. There are several things that they do, just to make your wedding imaginable. I don't know if they are reasonably priced, because I did not shoop around, I was referred to this company after I saw his work. You need to book him in advance.

Bob Coates is an award winning photographer. His at-home studio is testament to his talent.
We were happy with the pictures he took of our wedding in 2007.
His fee was $400 for 2 hours, this does not include any prints or an album, they are extra, which is not made clear at all, so don't assume anything is. He had an assistant who also took pictures, so we got two perspectives.

We did run into problems: We got our pictures on a DVD but they were thumbnail versions which did not print, as they are too small and pixelated. He did not offer prints to us and after asking twice by email, we didn't receive any follow up. Bob Coates offers wedding albums with his work in them, but they were too expensive for our budget, a small wallet size album was $300 and for a regular sized album, leather bound it was $5000. We therefore do not have any prints of our wedding pictures. We do have them on a disc and we can show our family the disc, but it is sad to have no prints, the files are in an unchangeable format. As a young couple, we just couldn't afford even the lowest album fee of $300, after we had paid for our wedding and all the other things that come with merging two lives. We didn't think it was fair to not offer any prints with the deal or tell us before hand that they were not included or offered.

We were happy with Bob Coats' professionalism and work, but we are so sad and disappointed to have no prints of our wedding. I assumed they would be included in the $400 fee or at least offered to us at a per print cost but no such offer was made, after we requested prints and costs of prints by email, it seemed Bob was not interested in that aspect of it. (Maybe he made no money off of that) as he never replied to the emails we sent.
So it was a bittersweet experience, the work and person were great, but no prints of our wedding day made it sad. Had we been made aware before hand that no prints were going to be included (or the DVD prints would be thumbnail size and therefore not printable at home or at a CVS etc,) we may have found someone else to be our photographer on the day. We feel duped.
