Vendor selections...

Soooooo we found a photographer who's prices are GREAT but her pics doesn't let us feel warm inside. They look nice and all but we haven't booked her yet and its been over 2mo since meeting with her.

The other thing is she only did 1 wedding before and there aren't a lot of pics online to showcase that. When we met w/ her, she showed us all the photos but at times, I want to go back and view etc and can't do that.

We found another photographer who's work is phenomenal but his prices are like WOAH and the initial prices dont include a 2nd shooter, which we'd like to have.

 

How'd you choose your photographer?

 oh i hate you are having problems.  i had my photographer picked out a long time ago.  my friend from high school is now a professional photographer.  she posts tons of pics from weddings, engagement, maternity, baby, and family shoots on her facebook page for her business.  after seeing so much of her work i knew i wanted her to do my wedding.

 aww, that's awesome. some of my FI friends are photographers but dont think they do weddings or haven't done anything on that scale.

Our wedding is in Sept, but I'd like to have photographer and videographer secured by Feb/March the latest.

My photographer is 2500 and I know I could find one cheaper but this includes all our pribted, albums and so much more. The saying...you get what you pay for is so true. Your wedding photos are irreplaceable. That is a day that you cant repeat so I would weigh the pros and cons of each one not counting the price. What is included? How many shooters? How many hours? Do you like their work? If the more expensive one is the one you like and its in your budget I would book it.

 Thanks but I'm not interested in having a wedding planner.

I will continue to look for a photographer though.

 It sounds like neither one is right for you. With certain vendors, you have to do a TON of research! Unless u are willing to stretch your budget and book the one you mentioned, I would keep looking. The first one you mentioned doesn't sound like a good idea based on what you said-if you're not thrilled then go with your gut. What area are you located? Do you mind me asking your photog budget? We can help you possibly find one? :)

I agree with Uhlease! If your gut is not comfortable with the first photographer, don't do it.  Have you gone to any bridal shows and seen any photographers there?  Just like she asked if you can let us know where you are located and your budget we may be able to help you find someone that is reasonable and takes great pics.

 Thanks Ladies! appreciate the help. I'm located New York City.

We'd like to have a photobooth, and got pricing for about $1000...so we'd roughly have about $4000-$4500 for  photographer and videographer.

 I kind of forgot that a lot of vendors don't put prices on their websites anymore so it's kind of hard for me to look around for you. lol. Dang it. Just quickly I found this website: http://www.chellisemichaelphotography.com/

Pictures look gorgeous but I couldn't tell you how much they charge. Sorry!

 Thanks! I will take a look and send an inquiry.

 

We met w/ a potential videographer today and the meeting went well. Quality was pretty good too.

We'd like to meet with at least 2 more before the month is over and come to a decision.
