I had a CO photog!  His name is Steve Stanton and he is awesome!  Though I’m probably not helping by adding another one onto your list!

We checked out tons of photographer’s websites (recommended to us by friends, family, and our venue).  Most of them have an apparent style and if their style didn’t match up with what we were looking for, they got eliminated immediately. 

Before we met with most vendors (photographers included) I called or emailed and asked to for their price list.  I didn’t want to waste my time or theirs by meeting with them if they are way out of my price range. 

Those two steps elminated half our original list.  From there, we prioritized who we liked the best (based on their website, prices, and recommendations), and met with those people first. 

Hope this helps!

If you can narrow it down to your favorite 2 vendors or so, usually Bees will give you some great opinions!

@mtnshine – You will feel much better when you have a shorter list!  Its just so overwhelming. 

Photography was really hard for us.  We interviewd 10 photographers (FI was ready to kill me).  We just couldn’t find someone that had the right combination of fantastic pictures, a great personality (since they are stalking us all day this was important), in our price range, and responsible (will return pictures in a timely manner, etc). 

In the end, we hired someone that wasn’t even on our initial list, but she’s fantastic and we knew it immediately.

texasmeredith has some great advice here …


As for the comment by  caszos, I’d like to mention that many established photographers have never had a WeddingBee bride. To give great weight to that as a primary consideration may be somewhat limiting.
