Our friend Blair did our engagement pics and they turned out great!

Here’s the link to our pics…. http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/12/11/engagement-photos-pt-2-%E2%80%93-the-good-pics/

And here’s a sample of some other pictures that he’s taken…. http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/01/13/blair%E2%80%99s-eye-view/

He’s definitely looking to build his portfolio, send me a PM if you want his info. He really is fantastic and is so much fun!

Oh, I HAD to reply to your post. Our engagement / wedding photographer, Tasha Schalk, is so wonderful. She’s got great prices, she’s a true professional, and we were so happy with our photos. 

Here’s the link to her engagement portfolio:


Let me know if you have any questions!

Peter Coombs is doing our pics — he has done the wedding of a few friends too.  Funny thing is that we booked him without talking to each other.

Our photog, Alix Klingenberg, has done some really, really fun Chicago engagement shoots:


I wish we could have a dozen shoots with her. 🙂

My photographer Kurt Gerber from Gerber + Scarpelli had in his contract the engagement session included in his overall price.  Both of us hate taking pictures so even though it was “complimentary” we declined. 

We were happy with our wedding pictures, we had some obligatory “posed” pictures even though we had originally said no posed pictures (Kurt said that for family’s sake we would regret not having them and in hindsight I would agree) – you can check out our slideshow at:

Elle at Gracefuleye Studios did ours last summer. I had found her on CL when she was looking to build her portfolio, and she did the shoot for free, and only had us pay for the DVD of images.

I’m assuming that she’s more established now, so she probably won’t be free, but she might still be offering deals. Good luck!

We loved our engagement/wedding photographer – Michael Rastall. You can check out his work/prices on his website. I think I will have my pro photos back in a few days and then I will post a ton/do my official review of Michael.

Great! I’m so glad you like it. He has more styles he can show you at his studio too.

My photographer for our e-session was awesome! His name is Steve Tabaluyan, and his website is http://www.stphotogallery.com/. He is just starting off, but he did a great job for our session at a very very reasonable price. A few of our pics are on his website.
