So I spend almost a year looking at Photographers & finaly found a guy out of Raleigh NC to do our wedding & then he never got back in touch with us. So my now Hubby went searching around his home town of Jacksonville NC for some. we meet with a few & some were Ok & some were crappy But all were very over priced!!! I mean I understand it is a military town & weddings are well lets face it everyday there but come on!!! $2,000+ for 3 hours?! We meet with this one couple who did beautiful work just beautiful but they were so $$$$ & they were very under-prepared for our meeting & the husband who took the photos didn't even stay for our meeting! I was impressed with the photos but not the photographers!
Then My Hubby sugested a Couple out of Richlands NC right out side of Jacksonville. We met with them & it was instant Connection! They were friendly & very Professional. They had a building set up for just their photography not run out of a room in their house! like may we had met with in the past.
They had a very nice, clean & professional studio set up. they specialized in family & relationship photography. it was an instant connection to them they were so nice! & unlike many photographers that we had met with they wanted us to shop around & check out our opptions for photographers, they weren't all about the money$$$.
I don't photograph well at all & my Hubby hates having his picture taken & they put both of us @ easy during our engagement shoot, & they even included our dogs in some of the shoot for christmas cards no extra charge! lol (silly i know but they are our "girls").
Everyone @ our wedding kept complememting us on our photographers on how nice they were & easy to work with. How they were not pushy or demanding with anything. how they were never in the way & how they spoke with everyone!
& when i say the photos of the wedding! They made me cry all over again! so many things I didn't remember!
Not only did we get all 570 edited photos, a DVD for grandparents who don't have computers, but a thumbdrive with a photo video in both HD & low D for adding to phones. & we had print rights to everything! also they posted everything on line for fmaily & friends to see & even on face book!
The Chandlers of Chadlers-studios were so wonderful!!! http://www.chandler-studios.com/
We will be going back to them for years & many of my friends & family @ the wedding who are getting married soon said they are going to use them!!
Thank You Chandlers for such beautiful memories http://www.chandler-studios.com/
