I didn't meet with her before signing a contract with her, but I have since. I can't remember where I got her name, either this forum or The Knot, then looked at a ton of different photographer's websites and sample work - and sat down w/my FI to "rank" the different photographers. We first did this w/o looking at pricing. Then we sat down and figured out 1) who was even available for our date (I had already contacted most of the photographers), and 2) what they charge. I will say Leigh was on teh high end of what I wanted to spend, but I am so happy it worked out in the end! It will be well worth it - for sure!
Then it just turned out that she was going to be in Chicago, where I live, and we arranged to get the engagement and boudoir photos done. It's great that I was able to meet her before the wedding day. Paul and I are NOT camera people - so hopefully we'll be more "relaxed" on the wedding day now that we know Leigh a little.
