Yesterday my FI and I narrowed our photographer list down to three! BUT, I absolutely can NOT decide which one to choose. I know everyone’s opinion is going to be different, but I am hoping some of you ladies can give me some insight/advice that I might not be considering.
As a note before you look at these, we are thinking we need at least 7-8hrs (pref. 8) for the wedding day, we are doing a first look and our ceremony starts at 6 with the reception ending at 1130. Each of these will be in three different locations.
My question is, do you think I will need 8hrs or will I be able to get to all these places and do a first look/have them photograph us both getting ready within 7hrs? I dont want to feel rushed!
First Look – Downtown Houston
Reception – (They have a smaller room which we will be using, but it looks the same and it will be the same colors)
#1. Nicole Chatham – She starts at about $2300 for 6hrs, no extras included like Bridals/etc, and is $250 per extra hour. (So approx. 2800 for 8hrs)
#2. Amy Watson Photography – $2500 for 8hrs, two photographers, Bridal OR Engagement shoot.
#3. Alyse French – I havent e-mailed her yet, but her info states 8hrs and $2800, No Bridal/Eng Shoot Included.
Is having two photographers, so that someone could be with FI to take pics and me to take pics, and get two different angles for the ceremony and first look something I should consider when making a choice. For those of you who had one photog. was this even a big deal?
I honestly cant decide. They are all within my price range. Who would you choose? Why?
