Review of Service

I was very pleased with the quality of this service. The photographer worked with us a lot. I enjoyed the pre-wedding photo sessions because it gave me an idea of what to expect from the photographer the day of the wedding. Also the photographer was very willing to work with us and took extensive notes on what people should be included in the photos, any group/family photos the needed to be taken. After the wedding the photographer worked with us to choose the best photos for the albums and the larger prints. I felt the service was great for the price paid.


I recommend meeting with several photographers to determine the style of the photographer and what they include in their package. Photographers have vastly different styles and it is best to get one that you agree with Be sure you know if you will need to pay extra for prints, extra albums etc. I recommend a photographer who is willing to meet with you multiple times and takes an effort to know what guests you think are important to have in your pictures. You definitely don't want to take a chance on the person you are paying to chronicle your special day!
