When I was looking for a photographer, I was toying with the idea of taking engagement photos. I didn’t want to pay extra for a simple session, so I was hoping to find a photographer that offered a free engagement session in their package. I felt extremely lucky to find a husband and wife photography team that were young, creative, and had affordable engagement photo rates. They were the second photographers that I had met, and I knew they were going to be just perfect.
Posed portraits aren’t really my fiance’s thing… heck, I don’t even know if they’re my “thing.” Yet, I really wanted some artistic pictures that we could use for our Save the Dates, our website, and just as a cute way to remember this time in our lives. I hired CSE Photography based on their amazing portfolio and their charming personalities. I knew it would be a good match!
Since photography is something that I value, I allotted more of my budget into this category. I have read way too many bridal blog horror stories of those who tried to skimp on pictures and ended up devastated. Since I am not sure if I will be having a videographer at our wedding, I knew that I had to ensure that I would have great pictures.
All in all, I’m quite glad we are working with these photographers. I think our pictures came out stunning. Their use of color and their creative ideas worked out well. I can’t wait to see what our wedding pictures will consist of!
