Who was your photographer? Why did you love them?

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies,

I am desperately trying to lock down a photographer but the $5500 plus bill that comes with them, is giving me anxiety. Please help.

If you had a photographer you loved in PV that was $5500 or under, please help. I would love your input before I spend the money without any feedback from you, the ones I trust the most to be honest.


Here is what I am looking for:

All day coverage day of

Night before coverage

trashing of the dress

High resolution CD of all photos

Photo enhancing


(am I asking for too much for that price?)


Any advise..... Cheers

I used Elizabeth Lloyd. I think you could all that from her in under $5500. I can't say if the pictures were great though. I have yet to see one since the wedding happened last week. She has a beautiful portfolio though.

For that price, I think you could definitely find someone great. I think it is reasonable to ask for complete day of coverage, and trash the dress session, and a disk of images. Coverage the day before might be asking for a little bit too much. Could you use photos from friends for the day before?

IMO spending money on your photographer is one of the most important budget decisions you have to make. I have seen weddings that were beautifully set up, but they didn't hire a good photographer and IMO their pictures didn't capture how great the wedding was.


I know prices for photography goes up all the time, but remember it's the memorys that last a life time, and it's worth it in the end to spend a little more money then you planned.

So sorry for the delayed response. I went with J. Cogliandro "Joe". He is out of Houston and does amazing work. He also does 4 full days of coverage.


We are so excited to have him.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
