Monica Hunter Photography

http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/monica-hunter-photography-arlington/0f8a296be0834449.html

She and Terry are GREAT

 

(I used Wedding Wire and bridal shows to compile my list)

These are the photographers I interviewed that I’d recommend:

(I have a few more but I wouldn’t recommend them!)

 

Our budget was so small that we had to either live with subpar photos are bump it up.  We ended up with a budget of $3000 which goes a long way with Monica and Terry because they do an “All day” rate.  Please do talk to them.  Also, keep in mind that Monica is a nut at the first meeting and is always too nervous, ha!

 

Hope this helps!  Let me know if you have other questions!

I believe I still have my “Photographer” questionaire if you need it.  I pretty much derived it from this wedding planning book:

We’re using Epic Photos Dallas (but the photographers we are using are from Tulsa I belive)

http://www.epicphotosdallas.com/(their old website read as much more professional but they still are fine to work with)

Ours are 50% off so I believe the package we got was originally around 4500.With that we got: 1 or 2 hr engagement session, 2 shooters day of, CD of all photos, Editing on most photos (I believe), shooters from the time we get to the venue till we leave, rights to the photos

 

To be honest we didn’t even really look at others. We went to the Dallas Bridal show the spring before we got engaged and were runners up in the big drawing and got 50% of DJ and photography (already had a DJ) and we liked the portfolio they had up so we went with them. We like the guys shooting our wedding (they were/are dancers so that helped that they know what to expect with our reception) so that helped.

I loved our photographers! Chavvon & Larissa Photography

We spent $3000, got two shooters all day, plus an album credit (for a really nice size album).

I am a bit late on this but I don’t care. They are awesome enough to share any time! I used James Brandon Photography. His wife is really the one that orchestrates all the wedding stuff though. She is Kristin Brandon Photography. They aren’t the cheapest or the most expensive but they are worth every single penny if not more. Seriously! These guys made it okay that we didn’t have a videographer and I haven’t even seen al the pictures!!!

Photography was our biggest priority, so we splurged here.  We’re using Albertex Photography, and we absolutely love them.  Not only do they take spectacular photos, but they are also just fun to hang out with.  It’s a husband/wife team, and I can’t recommend them enough.

We also interviewed Leslie Spurlock Photography, and it was a very very VERY close match between her and Albertex.  I would recommend her, too.

Matt and Ivy Photography and McGowan Images were our other two options.  My Maid/Matron of Honor actually did her engagement photos with Matt and Ivy, and they turned out great.  The only reason they didn’t use them for the wedding was that her dad wanted someone more traditional, and he was footing the bill.  Though we decided against them, we liked both options a whole lot, and I don’t think you could go wrong by choosing either of them.
