The search for a photographer started out bleak. (i.e. Expensive!)
Her planner wanted her to hire the best of the best, Ayres Photography.
And you have to admit, their photos are amazing...
But not their $4,000 price tag... o.0
To be fair, Miss Boa realized that the package her planner was suggesting to her was much more than she needed--12 hours of coverage and a (rather pricey) wedding album was not necessary! The engagement photo shoot, however, was going to stay!
Still, $3,000 for their 8 hour package wasn't exactly affordable either...so the search continued!
The pricing of Kaz Photography appealed to her instantly, and the photos were just as eye catching!
The Premier Plus package sounded perfect, 8 hours of wedding coverage, a DVD of all images with copyright release, $100 print credit, and an engagement shoot for $2,450!
Sadly, Kaz Photography was booked for the day of her wedding :( So Miss Boa went on to the next contenders...
Since I may oogle at wedding photos that show up on my facebook feed from time to time, :P , I suggested Tess Moran Photography because those photos really stuck out in my wedding-crazed mind!
...with packages that start at $3,000. Darn it! Nevermind then I told her, keep looking!
While finding photographs of the reception rooms in Templeton Landing, Miss Boa discovered Knight Studio Photography.
She liked their style of photography:
Their pricing was alright starting at $2,500, however to include the engagement photo shoot she wanted, the price would have to rise to $2,850.
Plus this company was also booked for her wedding date. XP
Needless to say she was starting to worry a bit about booking a photographer in time!
Determined to find someone who would fit their budget and schedule, Miss Boa did a very, very through search, considering eight other various photographers, all starting at $3K for what she wanted.
Till she found Robin Fox Photography!
*cue heavens parting*
Photographs that take your breath away, 10 hours of wedding coverage, DVD of images with copyright, 5-10 prints, an engagement session AND a wedding album for a grand total of $2,150.
I almost didn't want to tell you about this photographer so maybe Robin Fox would still be up-and-coming (and thus still affordable,) by the time I get married! XD
Being available for Miss Boa's special day, it was settled! The photographer was booked!
There still were some big elements still missing from Miss Boa's wedding, find out which next post!
