What was your favorite wedding photo?
There isn't just one...there are so many and everyone in the family has a different favorit. I'm partial to the one of my maid of honor unzipping the back of my dress on the beach so that I can slip out of it...with my bathing suit underneath.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
Ellin took most of the posed pictures in sequences so none of the events were disrupted. She asked for a list of people who needed to be photographed together and she did the rest.
Ellin's assistant took about half of the posed pictures which was fine with me. Everything was beautiful. Gorgeous. The photographs of us dancing and toasting were beautiful.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
Ellin's price included the engagement session if we ordered 2 albums which would be pre-paid. Both of our families wanted albums so it worked out. My mom thought the family pictures of everyone inside the chapel that she ordered a big one on canvas which she says she'll hang over the couch.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
No one knew what to do so she and Terry (her assistant) posed us. Very naturally though. They told us where to stand, wehre to put our hands, how to place our feet.
Ellin worked like a director which put us at ease becasue we felt she knew what she was doing. I loved her. She was easy to work with and the more I wanted, the more she threw in for free. Great photogapher.
