@LadyMonster: Personally, for me anyway, I think that sounds really amazing… I did check out the website and it depends on what look you’re going for, but that’s exactly the kind of photographer I want. Beautiful color and editing, but still looks realistic and not like it was pulled out of a storybook.  Wish I could find something like that!

I think they’re very nice photos and that’s a great price.  They remind me of my photographers pictures, more natural and relying on use of good light rather than over editing.

@LadyMonster:  This photographer (assuming it’s just one photographer) has some underlying talent.  I can definitely see a lot of inexperience in their business.  Which isn’t necessarily an awful thing, just pretty symptomatic of a photographer starting out. Her max package is $3000 and she is doing workshops?  That’s a big giggle for me as a photographer.  I also don’t like that I don’t get a sense of her(?) personality at all by looking at her website.

Technically what would bother me is her processing is inconsistent.  She’s got certain tones or treatments for one set of photos, and right next to it is another treatment.  She also seems to struggle a bit with flash photography.

So overall for $1500 (not sure what that includes) you are getting a steal.  This photographer will probably get more expensive when she figures out one cannot make a living on $1500 weddings.  I would theorize that the overall experience may not be as organized as hiring a more established professional.  But if you’re willing to take a bit of a risk on a newer person she looks like a safer bet than a lot of the websites I’ve seen on here.

Good luck!
