- Wedding: July 2014
we’ve been going back and forth on a photographer. Basically, I never wanted to spend more than 1,000€ but now we’re considering spending twice that amount. With everything else going on at the moment, we really do need to think twice about spending that much more. However, photos are one of the few items that we would allow ourselves to splurge on if we’re really convinced. These are our favorites. What do you think? Any words of wisdom appreciated 🙂
1,900€ per day incl. photo booth (even though I’m not even sure we’d have space for that – it’s not done here, so people won’t miss it and we’re not that big of a fan of photo booths, so it’s def not a game changer for us)
He doesn’t have any restrictions within that fee, so basically stays the whole day (as in not leaving after 10hrs).
The agency has different master and some rookie photogs. I “know” one of the masters (not very well, but have followed her on facebook for years and therefore know her photos best and have liked them for a long time) and two of the rookies have shot the newborn pics of Dirty Delete (which you may or may not find on their blog ;)) and we really liked them on a personal level.
2,000€ for the master photog, or 30% less for the rookies. (I could sort the blog either to show wedding pics for all photogs or all photos by one photog, so you’ll need to scroll down whenever there are non-wedding pics on the blog.)
2.1 Master Melanie:
2.2 Rookie 1 Saskia:
2.3 Rookie 2 Silvia:
Only 800€ for the day (around 10 hrs). They’d only do 200 pics, but when I asked she said those are the one she edits and she would give us more unedited ones. (I know this is a no go for the pro bees on here, but I really think her pics look very nice and not “cheap” or unskilled and I wouldn’t mind a bunch of them not being edited). I’ll have to post her pics in separate links.
What do you think? Are the expensive ones worth the extra $$ (or € ;))?
Also, I just LOVE some of the pics here on the bee which I have saved for my inspiration. I could imagine that the expensive ones (that both get featured in magazines, etc.), so Darek and Melanie, would view this as insulting if I show them my inspiration board of pics because they could see it as not leaving them enough creative room or undermining their pro status and that that would be easier with the rookies or Julia. What do you think?
We finally need to take a decision, we’re getting married in less than 4 months eeek.
