I have three appointments coming up with photographers. My original choice was scheduled for that day also, but just booked. I was pretty disappointed, but she referred me to two other photographers. The third is a friend of a friend. I like all of them and I think I have a favorite, but was hoping the hive could tell me YOUR favorite and what you think of the base packages listed (pro/con, reasonable?, etc.):
1. Billy Grubbs Photography
Listed price starts at $2650 – site says it includes: wedding day coverage, DVD of files, engagement session, and more (?)
2. Bella Grace Studios
No price listed on website
3. Redtree Photography
Listed price starts at $2995 – site says it includes: 6 hrs. coverage, around 500 proofs, 40 image album OR high-res images (not sure if this is only 40 high-res images, but I defintely want all/most of them if possible)
Thanks so, so much!

@Shiner: you should check out #2. Even though I get frustrated when prices are not listed on the website it could mean that there is more room for negotiation.
between 1 and 3…I like 1

I looked at all 3 blogs (I am at work so I didn’t get to see everything) But from what I saw I like # 1 and voted for it.

Thanks for the comments, but this poll is tied with three votes to each. GAH!! Aahaha. My brother is a photographer and agreed to come to one or two of the appointments with me to help me choose.

I can’t pick a favorite. Honestly, they are all beautiful! I love the candids that the third photographer got, but it depends on the style you’re going for. I *do* think, however, that you won’t be happy with 6 hours photography, not if you want getting ready, formals, ceremony, reception. How much are additional hours? I recommend meeting with the photographers and getting detailed information, also, figure out if you click with them. This REALLY helped us make our final decision!

All three are solid from what I can see (I didn’t stay long on #2 b/c it was a pain to navigate). So, it would come down to who you click with best, and who can give you the package that suits your needs.
