Beautiful, vintage, striking, clear yet faded and dreamy, wild, interesting: is it even possible to find it all in a wedding photographer? No, not really, unless I wanted my event to look like a million different styles, thus hiring several photographers and not liking anything, no. It took a while for this to set in.
I am a bit picky with photography. One of my main issues was that either something was expensive but not mind-blowingly so (let’s say $1,000) but the photography was just… they looked like stock photos. Then the prices jump like CRAZY to $3,000 and suddenly you just have to get a photo book included and an engagement session and two photographers included and it’s too much. It took a few months of searching and trying to find a transparent photographer; most of them don’t put their prices or even estimates on their sites, and I’m not really a fan of that.
Out of the list: beautiful, vintage, striking, faded, dreamy, romantic… I finally found what mattered to me.
All of these wonderful photos belong to Alisha Fenn Photography, and I’m so excited to have her photograph our wedding. The lady herself, Alisha, is super cute and colorful and seems like she will be fun to work with. After our phone call I found myself relieved- I mean this person is going to be there when I’m getting dressed, crying because I’m happy to be married, dancing like an idiot… I’m comforted that I found someone who is not only a great artist, but also an sweet human to be around.
Photography is actually the #1 expenditure for our wedding because, as I once said, “We aren’t going to be this hot in 20 years!” Someone else could probably phrase it more eloquently than I, but the point is I care a lot about it and can’t wait.
