    Ya, Fuller Edge jumped out at me. I just e-mailed them.

    I just got a quote back from someone else - $325 for the first hour $150 every hour after that, she hasn't told me how many prints are included. Is that a lot?

      hey courtney - also check out Wedding Photojournalist Association® | WPJA® | Wedding Photojournalism Photos and Wedding Photographers Resources | Reportage and Candid and [AG]WPJA: Artistic Wedding Photojournalism : Fine Art Wedding Photography

      if they are good it doesnt sound like a lot to me. whats included though? thats something you need to know. i have been really underpriced with my ES and am getting ready to raise them. mine will be a minimum of $500.

        Honestly I'd say that's about right. Well that's what I would have expected to pay. Did you see the pic in one of those links, where it showed the bottom of the grooms shoes that said "he/lp"

          Those prices sound very fair. If you want some really nice, candid shots - try to plan something that you normally do together - or something that you would like to do together. Then you can have your photographer be "paparazzi!"

          When I do a get to know you session, I send them a questionnaire to complete and I think of an idea and plan a "mini date" for them. If you want to email me, I will be happy to send you a copy of the questionnaire I use. It might help you think of some ideas for what you might want to do.

          :)

            What an awesome idea!! Why can't you be located in Calgary... it'd make my decision a lot easier! Ya - I'll send an e-mail your way. Thanks!

              I like to call this type of work Lifestyle sessions, so you may want to search for a photographer with that term. Also you may find photographers who can do this as an engagement session.

              Some nice places to go for your shoot may be the spot of your first kiss, your first date, or where he proposed. It's nice to be somewhere special where memories come back and you can re-live the special moments.

                This is getting really frustrating!!! I've gotten in contact with several photographers - all of whom responded quickly to my first e-mails or phone calls, but when I try to follow up I don't hear back anymore! Most recently, I contacted Fuller Edge Photography - the one that I found via this thread, and it's almost two weeks since the last time I've heard from them.

                1) Is this common not to hear back? I called or emailed and was enthusiastic, and mentioned that this would be something in the near future (hopefully even for our "pre-anniversary" on May 9th) - so I thought there was a slight sense of urgency

                2) Do I give off some bad vibe to people? lol. I don't get it.

                3) Maybe when I suggested May 9th, it was too soon? But wouldn't they say that and suggest a date they're available?


                AHH - Please help me! This is starting to piss me off!

                  Wow, does it always happen this way? Without a word of a lie I checked my e-mail before I posted this. Afterwards I checked again and bingo - a reply from Fuller Edge! This forum is magic!!

                      Alrighty - so I'm ready to book the photographer!! Do I ask to see a contract? She needs a deposit, which I expect and she's quoted me prices and told me whats included which I have all in an e-mail from her. Do I just go ahead with the deposit or do I ask for a contract?
