I am trying to find the perfect photographer and I was wondering if the hive might be able to help me. We love the style of Jessica Claire but we can’t afford her (as I am sure is the case for many of you!) We are getting married in Seattle and we would like to use someone local.
Can anyone clue me in to someone who has the crisp and colorful style that Jessica Claire does?

I haven’t seen Jessica Claire’s work, but I was married in October and we absolutely loved our photographer. He was the perfect mix of a few posed, but also a ton of candid shots. He was amazing to work with and his prices can’t be beat. Contact Michael Hassert at Luxar Studios http://www.luxarstudios.com. His office is in Kirkland.

Four letters: WPJA! Here’s a whole list of Washington-area, photojournalism-style photogs:
They’re not Jessica Claire, but you can get pretty darn close, and often for a fraction of the price. This is how we found our wonderful photographer.
Something else we’re doing to save money is to just have one photographer (we might miss some angles but I can live with that to stay within my budget) and not ordering an album from the photographer. He’ll give us all the digital files, and we’ll print our own. If we have the funds later on (maybe for our one-year anniversary or something), we can always go back and get one of those fancy flushmount albums. Good luck!
