    I booked Misti Abner. She's located in TN and I'm flying her in for the wedding. She's really nice and her prices are reasonable. She was referred to me by another bride on the knot. Here's her website Expressions By Misti - Professional Photography - Nashville, TN

        Im starting to wonder, should I fly in my photographer or just have the one the WC has? I just wonder how more expensive it is to fly someone in? A few thousand is ok, but I only get $1000 off my package if I use who the WC has..to me pics are VERY important.

          have you seen who your WC would hire? See if you like their work first. My hotel's photographer was bad.

              i'll put in my two cents for anyone wondering how much time is enough... from my experience, at least 6 hours is good to tell the more complete story of your day, for the average wedding anyway:)

                yeah I totally agree with Kristie. The more coverage you have the better you will be at preserving the day, but 6-7 hours is (to me) ample time. You'll have time for your getting ready shots (EXTREMELY important in my opinion), ceremony coverage, formals (or informals as I like to call em), and a few hours at the reception. By this time, there will be several people with a drink in one hand and a point-and-shoot in the other... lots of coverage at the reception, but its always good to know there is one sober one in the crowd taking the spontaneous photos, rather than the 'posed-fun' photos...

                my 2 cents (but they are canadian cents so they are pretty strong at the moment lol)

                  Canadians say "my 2 cents?" I thought they said "my 2 loonies."
