Choosing our wedding photographer | The Budget Savvy Bride
The Budget Savvy Bride

Meet Jessica, our lovely photographer, you can find her bio and her beautiful photography here.

Jessica’s sister was in my sorority at good old Saint Francis. Not long after I became engaged, L (Jessica’s sister), sent me a facebook message about her sisters photography business. I checked out Jessica’s facebook page and immediately contacted her.

We met Jessica the same day we found our venue and everything clicked. She was new to wedding photography and was offering a 50% discount to the first 5 couples who signed with her including a free engagement session. Jessica will be with me all day, from the time I’m getting ready until my last guest leaves all for $1000. I couldn’t believe our luck, not only was she a talented photographer and shared our same style, she was well within our price range. Everywhere else we had looked was between the $2500-$3500 range and it wasn’t feasible. I’m sure you can imagine my excitement!!

We wasted no time booking her for our wedding and planning our Engagement shoot.

Speaking of Engagement shoots… We had ours done at the end of last November at a local park where we frequently run. I really wanted to include my dog in the pictures, she is part of our family after all, and boy was that a bad idea. She chewed through two leashes, and walked through every mud puddle she could find. I love my engagement pictures because they are definitely the style we were going for, but I wish I had more and I wish I hadn’t taken my high strung pup with me. It was an experience I’ll never forget though, and I’m thankful that we have them.

Here are a few of my favorites…You can see more at Jessica’s site

    LOVE THEM! The dog pictures are definitely tricky… We went through the same exact thing with ours, and only got a few where he was even looking in the general direction of the camera.

      Thank you :) I’m glad we weren’t the only ones! Everyone’s always look so perfect, I was definitely fooled into thinking ours would too!
