Ooooppps! I forgot to post that we’ve picked and booked our photographer. We’ve gone for Paul Pope. His work is wonderful and exactly what we wanted. He does the standard posed shots but the majority will be reportage style. He also gives us a high-res copy of the photos on a disk.
Before getting to this point we visited one other photographer. His work wasn’t great and the post production work was very 80’s. We had a call with a guy who’s work was good, but as opposed to giving us a price, he asked what we expected to pay and used that figure. Hmmmmmm. The last guy we saw was expensive …. REALLY expensive. Also, there were lot’s of artistic shots in his portfolio. Not what we wanted at all!
Now I’m on the hunt for a DJ. We looking into hiring a Singer and a band but both options would blow the budget. The DJ I’m after will play 60’s, mowtown, Indie, soul and old style R&B. Any mention of DJ Casper is an instant no.
