I knew I wanted the best photography I could find, and I had very high expectations. I chose Jean Kallina for her references and her extensive photography experience. I also wanted very artistic photos and the style of those in her display albums seemed a good match. The price for her services is a bit steep, but I definitely was willing to pay for quality. There are many great photos and Jean caught a lot of great moments. Some shots are bit off centered or have the heads cut off or are very shadowy. However, there are so many that in most cases this is okay, but I found it surprising. Also there are some things I wished she would have captured-- she missed the rice throwing, and didn't take any of our bridal party during the first dance, and didn't take a photo of every table. In addition, there is only one shot of the whole bridal party, which would have been fine because I didn't want a whole lot of posed shots, but one of the groomsman is not standing in the right place and it is extremely noticable. I would suggest if you are very traditional, this may not be the best choice, but I wanted more candid shots so it was a good fit.
The packages are great because you get everything on disc, and a certain amount of free enlargements. We had a problem with one enlargement but when we contacted her, she did fix it right away, and was always very responsive by email.
Overall, she did a good job, and we have some awesome shots. Also you get a lot of pictures, and Jean is very discreet which is nice. Many guests said they never even noticed her in the church or reception. Our church shots are really great and I was happy with them, the reception could have been a bit better. Jean is easy to work with, and very professional. I am happy with our photos.
