I put out a search for a great, and affordable, photographer while back here.
There are some fabulous, amazing photogs out there in Chicago! After a long search, I decided to go with Ian Villaceran. He is just starting to rebuild his portfolio after a couple of years away attending to his first born. Here’a link to his previous website: <span style=”font-family: tahoma, verdana; font-size: 13px;”>(http://ianvillaceran.bigfolioblog.com/month/may08).

Ian was an absolute sweetheart. My FH is a bit camera shy and he totally put him at ease and let us just have fun. (BTW, did I mention he was also incredibly AFFORDABLE?!!) One unique feature is that he exclusively shoots with film. YES, films! No digital snaps. As much as I was glad to support the film art, I was a bit weary about this in the beginning – we’ve gotten so used to the convenience and immediate gratification for digital photos, I was a bit worried…what if the film gets over-exposed? What if it’s out of focus? But we forget, for many, many, many years, film successfully captured special moments and it really isn’t going to go away.
In the end, I was very happy with the results. (Ian somehow even uploaded the proofs within 24 hrs!) I also appreciated that he had this conviction for film art and that he was fully aware of the fact that he couldn’t mess up. 🙂
We have the pictures of lifetime that we will treasure forever and I just want to give GREAT KUDOS, TWO THUMBS UP to Ian.
Here’re some teaser pics. For my hubby’s privacy, I purposely chose the ones where you can’t really see his face, but if you want to see more and know more about Ian, PM me. 😉
