I just want opinions. The photographer I like is a little bit more money than we were originally wanting to spend. However, since doing the budget we picked a reception place that has centerpieces that we can use that is included in the cost, so I figure that I will just do that. Photography - important to me! Centerpieces - not so much! So I am thinking that not having to pay extra for centerpieces would make it okay to spend a little bit more in photography??? I guess I'm hoping for support in my rationalization haha
Another question - does anyone have experience or know people that have used a $700 photographer in comparison to say... $3000? A friend of mine says it is ridiculous to pay more than $1000 for pictures. I admit that her pictures look nice, but I guess it just makes me nervous using someone who is less established. Our orginial budget was going to allow about $2000, and the photographer I like (who was recommended by a friend and has really good reviews) is about $3000.
