- Wedding: July 2013
We’re living too far from the wedding location, so we’re thinking to get an engagement photo nearby.
The main purpose is to take pics to use for STD and just have fun. We don’t have many pics together and I think it’s a great execuse to take bunch of pics.
But, as we’re not going to use the same photographer.. I wonder if it’s really worth to spend a lot. We’re not terribly limited in budget but we want to be frugal as much as possible, that’s just us. I found a very affordable photographer ($150) where her pics seem nice, a reasonably expensive photographer ($400), a terribly expensive photographer (I don’t know her price but her wedding package starts at $5000 – I don’t want to spend that much).
One of the problem in general (e-session, wedding session) I have is, so far, there are many photographers I dislike no matter what their price ranges are. And I see reasonably good looking proofs for all sort of price range too. But those ones I really like start their wedding package from $4000 and I don’t want to spend that much for photos. When it’s under $4000, I don’t see terrible co-relation between prices and photos. Can this be because I am looking websites not the real photos?
Will getting a $150 photographer for e-session be worse than getting one from a friend? We’re far from good photographer friends, so that’s not an option but curious how the quality was if anyone had a similar thing.
Please share your experiences! Thanks!
