    Honestly…I didn’t like any pics on his website…Besides, photographers usually put their best works to show to the public…and if those pics are his best..then ..no thank you…

    I dislike them because they flooded our wedding email account and also my Facebook newsfeed when I’m on a computer without AdBlock on it. Besides that though, I’m not thoroughly impressed with them, What really matters is if you like what you see, if you like the style of work they do, if they fit your budget and you get what you’re looking for from them, etc. etc.

    If the price is sub-$1500 for a day’s worth of photography (that seems to be what they have listed), I think they provide pretty fair quality for price.  If you have more to spend, then I think you can get better photography, but I totally get that it doesn’t always work that way.

    @ducky244:   I wasn’t impressed by the images on his web site.  He sure goes in for tilted horizon lines – which I find very hard to look at, as if I have to tilt my head all the time, and his black and white images were of far lesser quality than his color images.  Generally it is the other way ’round.   

    I really think that in the Chicago area you could do far better.  

    Are you having a videographer as well?

    @Atalanta:  “Anyone who is NOT going to hire me because the music on my website makes them angry is just an angry person, and not someone I want to work with anyway.” Jeff Newsom 😛

    However, not a fan of this person’s work at all. I think everything is flat, poorly composed, and shot at like F11.

    @PassionatePhotoLady:  I donno who Jeff is nor do I care, but no, not angry, you’re just tacky as hell.  

    There is no way I’d hire someone with music on their website casue they are obviously stuck in 1993, not cause it angers me, but becasue music = they don’t know what the hell they are doing.

    @PassionatePhotoLady:  Ditto!

    At $1200 for all day coverage, their quailty level is in line with their pricing. However, if you have the budget to go up some, I would definitely do it. I just don’t find the work to be of great quality.

    I don’t enjoy music on sites either but Jeff Newsom is one of the best wedding photographers in the world. bar none. If I had the chance to hire him I wouldn’t care if his website played What Does the Fox say on an endless loop.

    @Atalanta… Really? Cause you sure sound like a pretty angry person to me right now.
