I have looked at many photographers and of course some cheaper than others I kept going back to the more expensive one of course. Although their packages were great and I was in love with their work I couldn't help but think I could find someone cheaper but still get the services and photos I wanted to get. On Oct 12 I had a photographer Tina Smith from Joplin, Missouri take senior pictures of my twin girls. When we arrived the first thing I noticed was her wedding photos. They were BREATH TAKING! Watching her interact and photograph my girls I had this feeling come over me that SHE was my wedding photographer. As my girls changed clothes I started talking to her and her husband. about shooting my wedding.
When we went backt o her home studio they had ordered pizza to eat while we viewed the photos and decided which ones we liked. The same day they were taken. I was beyond impressed. She showed me wedding albums as well as prices. I came home and did some more comparison and today I decided Tina Smith with Smith Photography is my photographer beyond a doubt.
