New Knottie!!

Hello all!  I am new to the board.  I have been lurking for awhile however.  I currently live out of town, but I am having my wedding in my fiance's home town......Toledo!!!  We picked our date, got the venue we wanted, now I just need some help with photogs.  Does anyone have any suggestions??  We are looking for an artsy type, I don't want traditional at all.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

    If you want an artsy type I definitely recommend Everlasting Images.  They love taking artistic photos.  They are our photographers, we have only used them for our engagement session so far, but they did my sister's wedding three years ago and her pics were amazing.  They just have a different point of view and you will get some amazing pictures that you would have never thought of taking yourself.

    And welcome to the boards!!!!  In addition to your local board, check out your wedding month board.  It is really nice to communicate with girls going through the same things at the same time, a little support group of sorts.

    Everlasting Images did my brother's wedding, and the pictures turned out pretty good.  Their shots of the bride and groom alone were very artsy, but I don't think that the rest of the pictures were artsy (IMO).  It's possible that my brother chose it that way though. Ty Photography does some artsy stuff.  Not my style though.  However, my friends who hired them and they loved their pictures.  Too many canted angles for me though personally.  I know Love Is Greater Photography is pretty artsy too.  I saw some engagement photos he did and they were really artsy and really good, too.

    I'm going with New Image Photography.  What I saw of the pictures seemed more like the style I was looking for.

    We used Sarah J Photography in Nov. 2008 - www.sarahjphoto.net.  At the time, Mary Wyar was her associate photog, but she has her own business now - http://www.marywyar.com.  Her style is pretty "artsy."  I'd also recommend ShutterLove Studio: http://www.shutterlovestudio.com.

    I used Jennifer from JEM photography.  Her website is www.momentsbyjem.com We loved her.  If you scroll through a few weddings, ours is labelled "Abbey and Shawn'

    We booked Sarah J for our wedding next year and can't wait! Here's a link to her blog: http://sarahjphoto.net/guesswhat/

    We looked into Mary Wyar but the prices were more than we wanted to spend.

    Ditto to Sarah J.  She's amazing and so much fun to work with.  She books up really fast.  She does an amazing job.

    Congratulations and welcome to the board!!

    All of the recommendations in this post are good ones.  I have personal experience with both Everlasting Images and New Image and would recommend them both.  New Image has multiple photographers, so if you go with them, be sure to explain your style preferences so that they can match you up with the best photographer for your style. :) :)

    Also, I'm not sure what your budget is, but if you're interested in a slightly higher-end photographer, Decisive Moment is awesome, and they have a very artsy/photojournalistic style.  (www.dmoment.com)
