Dear future Brides and Grooms,
Here’s the short version: Josh is amazing. Hire him.
The long version: We searched high and low for our wedding photographer. After viewing 80 billion portfolios on photographer websites, one gets rather bored with wedding pictures. But Josh’s photos stood out – they’re crisp, bright, and always interesting. His portrait shots never seem stiff (and that’s because he has no problem taking those bride/groom photos while you’re moving and he’s jogging backward on uneven ground), and his candids tell a story by capturing the most wonderful expressions on peoples’ faces. He really understands light too – one of the litmus tests we used when searching for a photographer was to look at whether their night shots looked natural and non-blurry. Well, Josh managed to get a clear photo of us out on our pitch-black deck after our wedding, after he was off the clock and sharing a drink with us and our late-partying guests. At the opposite extreme, our ceremony took place under blazing sun with erratic shade from nearby trees. While every single guest photo (and some of our guests are pretty good amateur photographers) was overexposed, Josh’s came out beautifully. And you can see TONS of great examples of his work on his website, where he’s posted entire weddings. Beware of photographers who only show you their fifty best pictures.
So, Josh has skillz. That doesn’t matter if your photographer is a jerk. Because, after all, your photog is going to be with you in your dressing room on your wedding day, and that could be awkward if they’re creepy. Not a problem with Josh – he’ll be non-intrusive on your wedding day, he’s super nice, and he really makes a genuine effort to get to know you. I’d be surprised if there’s any couple he’s photographed that he didn’t end up friends with. He got wind of the fact that I love board games, so we took a game to a local café and used that as a jumping off point for our 3 hour (!) long engagement shoot. So you really get an individualized experience with Josh. He’s also young, motivated, enthusiastic, and clearly loves his work. Which is a requirement when you’re individually editing 1100 photos from a wedding, or you’d presumably go crazy. That’s right, we got a whopping 1100 pictures on disc, with full rights. Discs, I should say, because Josh helpfully provided several copies, each individually packaged with Martha Stewart-wrapping prowess, so we could disperse them to our parents. And they arrived in a timely manner – none of this 4-6 months stuff you get from some photographers.
Josh is worth every penny we paid him. More, actually. He’s really reasonably priced for his level of talent. We definitely interviewed less expensive photographers, but their work just didn’t match up. Josh was also great with being flexible and accommodating our budget with ala carte pricing. After seeing his gorgeous work on previous wedding albums and salivating over the clean, modern look of them, we even ordered an album for ourselves, despite being cheapskates. Best. Decision. Ever. I just received the finished product, and we’re talking heirloom material here.
Right, so in conclusion: Josh is amazing. Hire him.
