Northern California and San Francisco Bay Area Wedding Photographer - Liz Edlund PHOTOGRAPHS

Leigh Miller gave me this photographers name, and I was thinking this is the one I like, but I don't feel like I can make this decision without you ladies taking a look before I go with her.

    she's got some great work. The most important thing about hiring a photographer is clicking with them. If you like their work but don't click with them, better the chances you won't like your pics. You have to be able to trust them. If you have any doubts... don't hire someone.

    Have you talked with her yet? If not, I would do that before making any decisions. Again, she's got great work so he's definitely someone I would recommend but ultimately you have to make the final decision.

    Thanks, we've only e-mailed so far, but I don't feel like I got some canned response from her. I will have to speak to her over the phone to really know, but before I take the next step I wanted all of you to see her work first...

      christine - i can tell you liz is just the kindest, most generous person! i know her through an online professional photography organization much like you know the gals on here.

      no doubt you need to click with your photographer and of course talk to her on the phone but about 70% of the weddings i have booked for next year are with people i havent met and most of them we just emailed. i cant remember - ann did we even talk on the phone before you booked me? this is not unusual on the photography business. you can tell a lot through email exchanges. and mostly i think my couples and i just email because they tend to be busy professionals without a lot of free time on their hands. also with my blog people tend to feel like they know me a bit and get to see some of my personality already.

      of course any of the photographers i sent you are really good. i always feel like a referral is a reflection on me so i only refer people whom i have the highest professional regard for.

      im not trying to convince you to hire liz. im just letting you know what my experience with my couples has been. good luck with your search! im glad everything is coming together for you :)

      Leigh that is what I told my mom, since I feel like I have gotten to know you and love your pics I feel like someone you recommended must be a great person, and she agreed. Thank you so much, I almost had a little breakdown about photography tonight (well okay I did shed some tears).

        just the stress of not finding a good photographer and everyone getting booked up before my parents who are super busy and take forever to get back to me. My mom sometimes makes me feel like what I feel is important is actually insignificant, but I explained to her why I feel this is the next big decision I need to make (after the guy, location, dress) because the pictures are the one thing I will for sure have forever!!!

          you have already helped by giving me some recommendations. I will contact Liz tomorrow.
          ps. I e-mailed my friend Courtney your info, she is looking at photographers this week for her wedding. She lives in Valencia, she is my sorority sister. Not sure when her date is, I believe they just got engaged but are trying to do something soon.
