    I think that is a good price…8 hours is a long time…for TWO photographers.

    Plus all the hours of editing etc.

    Best of luck!!

    I like her style…and $1500 is a BARGAIN.

    @SweetHoneyBee:  I like! I’m like you, I don’t have a very detailed or technical eye for photography, and I think being happy with what you get and the price is way more important than if their technique is perfect. Maybe just ask to see a full set of photos from one wedding if/when you meet with her to make sure she gets the type of shots you want overall? I only say that because I’m not seeing a lot of photos in her wedding portfolio, but I didn’t do a lot of digging either.

    Her post processing is all over the place and way too heavy at times.  She’s about what I expect for $1500, and everyone get their start somewhere but she isn’t someone I’d want photographing me personally.

    There are some things that concern me – like someone else said, her editing style is really inconsistent. Many of the images are soft (not sharp focus) which often indicates lower quality gear that may not be able to handle the craziness of a wedding day. Other big red flag – when you click on the “Weddings” tab there is ONE wedding, posted in May. Most of what is on her blog is portrait work. I would be very careful about this because it seems she is very inexperienced shooting weddings. When you meet with her also make sure to check with her about whether she’s insured or not – most photographers literally could not afford to provide 2 shooters for 8 hours and everything else she included if they’re paying liability insurance/taxes/actually have a business license. Remember that the only thing you have after the wedding day are the photos to remember that – that’s pretty real and substantial. Good luck!

    Congrats on finding a great photographer in such a lower than average price range! So there’s hope for me yet!

    I think that’s an excellent price and picture quality looks good too. My photographer is charging us $2600 for the same, and she’s the lowest price one I could find.
