Big Day Photography

so- I got an email saying that I can get a free e-pic session if I was 'one of the frist 15 to respond' I wasn't, but I got one anyway- thursday at 7.Anyone ever heard of them? Are they new or something? They said I would get a disk with all my pictures and 'no obligation to book'.  Is this a waste of time?

    take the free pics and run with it!! that's how i got my e-session! it was a great way to decide if we liked the photog or not, before booking her. i think big day might be one of those companies where you don't pick your photog-you get whoever shows up the day of your wedding. not sure though.have fun with your epics!

    Big Day is a company that basically acts as an employer for lots of photographers. My photog (Dino Bovo) is actually "employed" by them, even though I found him on my own. They've been around for a while. They're trustworthy, IMO.

    Yeah, I thought Dino booked with them!  But you can book him on his own too - my guess is that it is cheaper then.  Did you look into that at all, dvansky?I'd go for the pics Sara, but keep in mind that it is a good idea to get to know your photog that you'll be using for the wedding too.  Also, there might be some restrictions on where you can have them taken and such...I know you were thinking about the farm, barn etc.

    sweet! I'm doin it!  Its actually "in monroeville" and they will call me to tell me the location.  So I'm almost def going to get another set of e-pics, so I can do the farm.  But this will be good practice!  Hmm... now I have to think about what to wear...

    Yeah I actually booked with Dino directly and then he turned the contract into Big Day. I never talked with anyone at Big Day directly, only Dino.
