We loved the picture of everyone. The girls were standing randomly, some with flowers and some with their hands on their hips while the guys were relaxing against the building, some sitting. We were standing off to the side cuddled while the guys and girls looked at us.
Both photographers were awesome! Tanisha worked with me and Vancey captured the guys. They didn't do much talking but rather a lot of shooting without telling us what to do and how to pose. When it was time to get pictures with the family, the shots were still taken while we talked and laughed about the day.
Our package was the best we found out of 4 photographers in our area. We got 2 photographers, all day coverage, all capture on DVD with a release statement, and my makeup was flawlessly applied by Tanisha. We were amazed at how many shots they captured (over 2000) but it was great to go through them. This was all we needed and we've already done the prints ourselves.
Both Tanisha and Vancey received rave reviews from our families. They were not rude or "too seen". We refer them to everyone who wants great photographers with great images.

What was your favorite wedding photo? IGI was able to capture a moment my husband and I were not looking and we did not think that anyone else was looking. It's a portrait of him wrapping his arms around my waist- with my back towards him (and he was telling me how much he loves me) while he is kiss my neck. I love that shot! It was a private moment-but one I am glad they captured, so I never forget.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? We had both photographers at our wedding and Tanisha was able to capture my portraits along with the entire bridal party before the ceremony. Vancey was also able to do the same for the guys. By the time the ceremony was over- most of the portraits had been captured which made easy flow to the reception. With our time investment we were supposed to receive 500 images. The photographers ended up capturing 1700 images and most of them were wonderful candids which told the story about our day. My husband and I wanted a ton of shots with family and friends dancing. My family had so much fun dancing for the camera- and will be surprised to see what was captured when they thought no one was looking. We did not want the traditional posed portraits, so Tanisha came up with creative ways to incorporate the wedding party without doing the simple stand and snap we'd heard about. They turned out amazing!
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Our investment included 2 photographers, 5 hours of coverage, 500 images, copyright released DVD, bridal makeup by Tanisha, and 2 hours travel for $1125. I had heard that IGI always give extra shots to easy going clients and we had fun with them, so we ended up getting 100 additional shots on our DVD.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Oh my goodness-where do I start? We initially met at their home where we felt extremely comfortable with snacks and candles with jazz playing in the background. Our wedding day, they arrived dressed more professional than most of the guests. The two of them were everywhere capturing everything as we have pictures of every detail and everyone- but we don't remember seeing them capture the moment. By the end of the night, everyone was having fun and in the end we can revisit our wedding over and over forever.
