    I emailed three. Ours was friendly, available, and the best for the budget, so we emailed back and forth a few times before I booked her. She’s from about an hour away, so I based it all off blog, emails, and pic samples, and I couldn’t be happier. Our e-pics are phenomenal, and she’s so easy to work with. She is just starting out on her own after being a second shooter, and I would recommend her to anyone!

    we only met with one photographer and that was the one that was included in our wedding package from our venue… we felt that since their services were included we would meet with them and actually see the items included in our package and then have our engagement session and if that didnt work out we would still have time to decline their services and find another… but the meeting we had with the photographer worked out great and we got a very good vibe about them so we shall see what happens at the engagement session

    I may be photo neurotic but I e-mailed about 30, spoke with about 15 on the phone and have either met with or have appts to meet with about 5.  I have specific expectations and this is one of the most important aspects to me.

    I had been in a wedding before that our photographer shot, and Fiance had seen pictures from another friends wedding, and we loved her! actually, half the reason that we changed the date (before we had set any deposits down) was cuz she was available on our second choice date!

    This was a difficult decision for us to make too. We emailed lottttsss, but narrowed it down and met with the top 3 that fit our budget and our style. We narrowed it down to 2 after those meetings and eventually made a decision, but it was deff a tough one!

    I asked a lot of photog related questions here while trying to make that decision, so if you have any specific questions don’t be afraid to ask! It was really helpful for me to do that.

    Our photographer was recommended to us by two couples we know, so we were already 90% sure we would choose him before we even sat down with him to talk. We didn’t meet with any others.
