Do not go with magnolia pair. Nowadays everyone gives you the disc!

@IreneG:  I agree for wedding related things, including engagement sessions, the disk is typically offered at an option, and sometimes a cost adder, but it should be affordable.  Boutique portrait studios typically don’t give a digital option or price them really expensive because they focus on creating unique custom products and this is why people hire them.

Elizabeth Ray – I see some basic portraiture issues like cutting off limbs, fingers, elbows in the compositions.  Also, I don’t think she nailed the vintage editing style, even though I am sick of it, it doesn’t look natural to me in her versions.

 

Greer has like no portfolio on the website, like one image for each portrait heading.  Also, there is no about page filled out.  Sometimes tells me they are very new.

@louisianablue:  It will matter if you want to make prints in the future, or if you want to share them online, create a wedding website, or use them for Save the Dates.

They are not giving you the files because they want to sell prints.  Ask them how much they would sell the disk for, which would basically be what they would expect to sell in prints.  Is there upfront session fee lower than the other guys?

We used Elizabeth Ray for our engagement photos, and are 99% sure she will also do our wedding photos (we’ve only seen the sneak peek of our engagement so far and expect the rest in the next couple of weeks). She was fun to work with and went above and beyond our expectations for the photos (so far). She was also really flexible and accommodating…

Here’s the “sneak peek” of our engagement and wedding photos. She was phenomenal 🙂
