so i have a small dilemma. we fell in love with this photographer from day 1. i stalked his blog and website, and we met with him. we clicked right away and i think we will be fabulous for our wedding day. his style is very unique and i am so drawn to it. his photos are the only ones that have made me cry so far. i've looked at countless other photographers in our area, even some who do similar styles to him. but i keep coming back to this guy. no one else seems to be as good as he is and can capture the mood/feeling we want.
and the problem... that "special feeling" comes with a hefty price tag. he is nearly double what other photographers are quoting me. we are at the point where i need to decide within a week or two to go with him or just part ways. i could always get his very base package, which does not include much. the same price for his base package is what other photogs would charge us for the ENTIRE package/day with everything included.
do i suck it up and just pay the money and trim from other parts of our budget? i am so torn and keep going back and forth. i know he is worth the money, but don't know if i can really afford him. but then i feel like i'll regret not booking him and be disappointed with my pictures.
