- Wedding: June 2012
I have read a lot of posts from people worrying about finding a photographer on a limited budget, so I thought I would share….I decided to see if I could do a bridal session after my hair and makeup trial on Friday but I really didn’t want to invest a lot of money. I googled photographers in the area and just started sending emails to see how much it would cost — they are not a normal thing around here and I only had the idea from reading about them on here 🙂 Most of the quotes I got were along the same lines of our engagement session – about $300 for an hour. But, I got one guy who said unlimited time, unlimited pictures, unlimited locations….for $120!! I figured for that amount, it was worth a chance! Most of the pictures in his online portfolio are family pictures, some engagement sessions and a few weddings, so I think this is one of those situations where he wanted to add some TTD kind of pics to his gallery and I benefited!
He asked me to pin pictures that I liked in Pinterest and I can tell he really looked at them as many of the locations were inspired by those pics and the style he was going for. We shot at more locations than I can count and it took 4 HOURS! But it was soooo much fun! So, I guess I would say…send the emails! You may be surprised!
The horrible faces are all my fault! Can’t blame the photographer for that! And I kindof don’t like my hair from the front….also not his fault 🙂
