Michigan-Lansing

Great Photographer checked off my list

I don't post in Lansing really because I live in the Detroit area and my wedding is in GR but I want send a rave about the photographer I chose from the Lansing area.
I posted about this a while back because I felt I found someone I really liked but decided to keep my other appointments then even looked at a few more before booking.
After all the time I spent it turns out I should have gone with my first reaction because I signed a contract with Town Square Photo this morning.
http://www.townsquarephoto.com 
Had I signed earlier I could have received a free oval metal print (has anyone seen these they are beautiful !!) but I still feel I am getting a great deal with high-end quality.
I get 2 photographers up to 9 hours, an 11x14 album, all photos on a disk with printing rights, engagement session, slideshow set to music, enlargements for $1850.
Not to mention Jeff and Alicia are so friendly, very detailed and helpful with organizing my timeline.

  • Yikes, I don't know about their pictures, but this is one of the ugliest websites I've ever seen for a photographer. I wouldn't have gotten past the first page.

    Wow.
    I would say the first page was simple with a beautiful sunset photo that I really like but everybody's different I guess.
    But I like the picture on the second page even more. The moon behind them with all the boats on the water.
    I thought this was amazing. 
    My FI and I are both IT geeks so it's easy for us to be critical.
    It's a simple site with a lot of info but easy to navigate through.
    Templates mostly without a lot of bells and whistles.
    I haven't really started to look for a photographer yet though.
    I do like that they list their package prices and that I can customize the package.
    I hope you have a great day and get a lot of beautiful pics.

  • Ummm...are you a vendor??  If so, not allowed.

    I read your previous posts and know what you mean about agonizing over picking a photographer.
    You will be very happy with your choice because Alicia & Jeff did my wedding.
    They also did my maternity photos just about 3 weeks ago and will be doing my newborn pics as well.
    I know they have been doing fewer weddings to allow more time for senior photos and some out of state events.
    That being said. I know you are in Detroit with wedding in GR but when you post the same thing on all 3 boards it is a little tiresome. Please don't take offense.
    As for being a vendor I don't think so because I know they were on their way to North Carolina and Atlanta for a couple events after my maternity session. Besides that they have been around longer than most of the other advertisers and their schedule is unbelievable.

    Point Taken. Thank you Farmers daughter for your response.
    It's just that I was so excited to have this taken care of. When I joined the knot most of my vendor choices were already in place. It was so hard choosing the right photographer.
    As for the website, well first of all I am not buying a website but I like it.
    It's not filled with a bunch of fluffy flash that takes forever to load on my computer.
    Beautiful pictures, good info and PRICES!! that can be customized.
    Wealthy brides may not care about seeing prices but I want to see specific pricing.
