When we first got engaged, we discussed the must-have, the must-not-have, and the we-don't-have-an-opinion items. We both come from big families, so a big-ish wedding was in the cards. We were both in our 30s and had been through plenty of wedd...
ings as bridal party members, family members, and guests, so we had a few ideas of what we wanted that day to look like. Videographer? Meh. Live band? Maybe. Cake? Whatever. But a quality photographer? Definite must-have. I have many friends and relatives that cite their biggest regret as not having at least a handful of quality pictures from their wedding day. They went the route of having a friend or cousin take photos- and they wish they hadn't. Everyone's intentions were good, but the final product fell way too short.
I asked around and looked online. I knew Glasser Images on their reputation already, but feared they would be out of our price range. After shopping around, I found they were the most reasonably priced photographer, of that quality and style, by leaps and bounds. Also, from what I could tell, there were no hidden costs or surprises.
Included with the wedding package was an engagement session, full day coverage, and access to all the photos they captured. The only optional extra cost/not included in the package cost was a wedding album, which was of the highest quality, and was far more beautiful than I expected. I highly recommend ordering an album through them. Sure, you can make a cheaper one yourself, but it's completely worth it to have them put it together and print it.
Also included with the standard package: their complete professionalism, familiarity with weddings, incredible work ethic, pre-planning detail work, and expertise. Holy crap- these people know their stuff. We met with Jack about two months prior to our wedding day to discuss the flow, the shots we wanted, timing, etc. He covered every base, every possible scenario, every everything. We didn't have all that much planned at that point, but working with him got many more things lined up and in place- which was great- way way way great (and needed!).
I've been part of weddings where the photographer added stress to the day; with Glasser Images, not only will your stress be lessened, but everything will be brighter and better. They are truly wonderful people who work VERY hard to get every shot you want and more. They made that day even more special and personalized, they stuck around the dance to get all the shots we wanted, and they gave us so many polished photos to choose from (but not a ridiculous amount to shuffle through), that we were spoiled for choice.
I cannot stress this enough: hiring Glasser Images to do our wedding photography was the absolute best wedding-planning decision we made. I can't think of one complaint or one thing I would change. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me (though I'm not certain how that's done through this site).
Best of luck with planning; set a budget and enjoy this fun time!
