I just got back from a bridal show and now have a TON of business cards and brochures to sort through. I was wondering if anyone had opinions of the following vendors (they all located in the DC/Baltimore area):
– Pete Redel
– Lyndsay (or Lindsay) MacDonald
– Timmester Photography (I think the main photog is Tracy Timmester)
– Stephen de Leon
– Video Express Productions
– Electric Entertainment
– The Pros (they do photography, videography & DJ;s)
– Rev. Bill & Joyce Cochran
Any opinions you have would be helpful! Thanks in advance!!

Pete was the first photographer we looked at! I actually went to college with him and at least 4 girls I know used or are using him and are very happy. His work is beautiful but he was a little expensive for us. PM me if you have more questions!

We hired Lindsay MacDonald for our wedding. We haven’t worked with her yet (not married yet) but I have been following her blog and her work is AMAZING! She also seems super sweet and I am so excited to work with her. I also talked to my coordinator recently and when I told her who I had chosen for photography she said she has heard that Lindsay is the next “up and coming photographer” in the area and she was excited to work with her as well.
Here is her blog: http://lmacphotography.com/blog

We have booked the Pros for our DJ and our photography. We went to a wedding showcase where we got to see and meet the DJs and photographers, which was helpful. Some of the photographers were not my taste, but i LOVE the one we picked (Valerie U). A good friend of mine is a wedding planner and Scott Mitchell (who is the Baltimore area DJ coordinator) is her go-to guy for weddings. I have been to several weddings he has Djed and he does a great job and is SO nice. He wasn’t available for my date, but recommended another DJ for me based on my needs.
The customer service is excellent, they are very responsive. I highly recommend going to a showcase if you can. You get to see and meet the people, and they give discounts on your packages if you book at the showcase.
