We had so much fun at Becky and Mike's wedding day, September 15.
They made me feel like family before the night was over.
One of the nicest couple's I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
Joe was an absolute JOY to work with! I had less than a year to plan our wedding myself. Everything that we picked was either from word of mouth or by reading reviews, so I wanted to help make things easier for all of you looking for the perfect photographer! Our wedding was in South County and the reception was in Columbia, IL. I was looking for someone local; not an hour or two away. My dad does some photography work, so whoever we picked had to meet his standards along with the budget. I started looking online and on wedding sites in search of a photographer. Our wedding coordinator at the church had mentioned a lady that did pretty good work, so she gave me her name and email address. When I emailed her asking for some info and to possibly meet up, she gave me a starting price (which was out of the price range I was thinking) and wanted to schedule a meeting. Her house/shop was fairly close to where I lived, so I said that sounded good. Instead, she insisted that we meet her one weekend evening at a Ruby Tuesday's even farther than her house! Mike and I weren’t a fan of that idea; we wanted to meet her and discuss our ideas and requests and see some of her work. So, that and other things was a deal breaker for me. Then I stumbled across Joe's site and loved his work! We scheduled a meeting with him at his studio/home. He is an EXTREMELY personable guy and really took our wants and requests to heart. He showed us his albums and went over all of the options with us. We NEVER felt any pressure from him to purchase anything we didn’t want just so that he could make more money off of us. It was nice because we knew that on our wedding day, Joe was going to be our photographer; not some random employee at the studio that we had never met or that didn’t know our personalities. He showed up at the time we agreed on, took excellent photos (that my dad raves about!), and was very quick to get our photos edited and online in just about a week. Also, he is great with kids!
