Help!!!! wedding through the MANY photographer websites!!!!!
Posted 21 February 2010 - 07:59 PM
I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum!! We are planning a Maui wedding for May 2011 - I know it's a way's away yet but I thought I would at least start the process of narrowing down a photographer...... super important part of the day. There are so many out there and so many different packages I'm overwhelmed already LOL.
I'm trying to stay within a reasonable budget of around $500 or so (We are not having a formal reception and our thoughts at this point is to find a photographer to just do a 1 hr (maybe longer) photo shoot of us in our wedding attire on the beach we were just married on after the ceremony. I have found some great galleries but pricing seems to be in the $1000's and the packages very small. If the photographer is amazing and has some great reviews w/ a good package I am willing to budge on cost but at this point I know nothing of these photographers and afraid I could easily be "had" by booking something online.
Any feedback you have would be much appreciated.
Thanks a bunch!!!

and another tidbit of useful info would be that we are most likely staying in Kihei and are looking at Makena Cove as our destination

I'm hooked on Nathaniel Thompson's photos, but I'm not going to be able to afford him, so I'm still looking.
Many of the brides on this forum used AMAZING photogs and their pics look very professional as though they should be in a bridal magazine. I know I want that look for my wedding, so I'm just gonna have to bite the bullet and spend the money.

Blkrevpower - I agree, here I thought I was gonna save by going away for our wedding LOL. Photographer is turning out to be much more expensive than I originally planned for. I'm so afraid of getting something to save a little money and then end up with no photo's of my wedding day - that would be horrible. I think I too will end up paying the extra for someone with a good reputation.
