    I can't think of anyone off the top of my head who's used them recently.  Are they both based in Raleigh?

    i looked at one of these only because i kept running into their darn name everywhere i looked. they must spend all their money marketing. i found their samples to be about average and overpriced.

    i actually agree with andrea on this one. i looked in to them as well but you could get someone just as great for way less money. idk what your budget is check into evoke photography or cheyenne schultz. i'm pretty sure they travel and quality is the same but price is much less.

    Just out of curiosity, what is their price range?  Because looking at their portfolios I don't think they should be charging all that much to begin with.Have you looked at Martha Manning?  She's very flexible with her pricing and has amazing photos.  A friend of mine who does pro photography for the Hurricanes recommended her to me.  http://www.marthamanning.com/Also check out Cohen Studios.  He's a friend of my sister and his work is great.  He's just lazy about making a website haha.  I think his packages start at $1200 if I remember correctly.  Here's his Facebook but it's better to go down to his studio and look at his work.  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Raleigh-NC/Cohen-Studios/66315336912

    That's about starting w/my photog as well.  I think you can get a better photog for that much but that's just MO.

    Whoa are you serious?!  I could see 1500 for the one guy but no way would I have guessed 3k starting for the other guy!  You can get much better for 3k starting!
