I am on a really really tight budget and found a new photographer on craiglist that just started shotting wedding and engagement pictures. I hired for 40 dollars and got over 150 editted pictures. We have decieded to take a chance and also hire her to do our wedding. We went to a local amusement park to get the photos done (i wanted the look of a fair) and I think they came out great.
All photos are from Maelynn Photography

Very Cute! I was thinking of doing e-shots at an amusement park on the boardwalk of the beach where we are getting married. These definitely make me want to do that even more 🙂 Thanks for sharing

I love your photos! I think that deciding to use her as your wedding photographer is a great idea.

I am still a little nervous but she was so fun to be around plus she has a lot of experience as a studio photographer and takes great pictures of kids (FH has 3 kids so that is important to us)

I am sorry, but the truth needs to come out, I would be very skeptical to hire this person as your sole wedding photographer based on the content posted. Have you seen an entire wedding shoot start to finish to get an idea of what to expect and not just portfolio images?

@dinajean: I am still a little nervous
it looks like a really fun session and from what you said, the photog was really great to work with. however, given that you are still feeling nervous about it probably means your instinct is telling you something. i personally see have photos that were edited better by non-photog’s like friends and family. I feel like if you look around some more (in your budget), you can find someone who won’t make you feel nervous at all, but super excited! If anything, seeing what else is out there might give you more assurance you are making the choice.

- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
The concepts for the photos are great, but I don’t know if you are going to be happy with your wedding photos based on what you’ve posted here. The photographer is going for so much flash and uniqueness that she hasn’t managed to capture the both of you in a focused shot. The pictures of you two are blurry. Ignore everything else that is going on in the photos and focus on the two of you…you’ll see what I mean. I’d just hate for you to have blurry wedding photos 🙁

@sherryberry: I hate to say it, but I agree. Ignoring the backgrounds and other effects, you guys are not in focus in any of these shots. I wouldn’t risk it.

Photography is all about style and taste but I do agree with PPs that I’d be hesitant to book this photographer for your wedding based on some technical issues. Based on your current photog’s location I did a quick Google and came up with this photographer who seems to be a bit better technically. Not sure of your budget but perhaps some local Bees could help you find a photog to fit your budget?
