Mission: Finding a Photographer Part I

Photography has always been something I've loved. I think it's in my blood because my parents love photography too. Who else can say that their parents have at least 65 albums documenting their life and us kids growing up. Plus, I was the first born grandchild on both sides, so naturally there were even more photos taken. I was even voted "Most Photogenic" in my 8th grade class. I've never been shy in front of the camera.

I knew that for my wedding, I definitely wanted it documented. I wanted to be able to look back at an album or digital album and show my kids and grandkids our memories. Photography was definitely an area I was willing to spend more of my budget.

So how did I start? With so many awesome photographers out there, it was all about narrowing them down by style. I knew that I definitely wanted a more photojournalistic style. Someone who would be able to capture candids, but wouldn't be opposed to posed shots as well. I wasn't all about the traditional portraits. I wanted someone who could have some fun and would be able to work with what we wanted. In addition, I needed to find someone with a reasonable package.

I immediately asked a friend for her recommendations since she had her wedding in July 2007. I love the photos that her photographer, Junshien, captured. I quickly contacted him to find out what his rates were. For weddings, depending on the package you choose, he will shoot with the awesome Scott Robert. He also has excellent style and picks up on the little nuances that make the difference. As an up and coming photographer in the Bay Area and associate to Scott Robert, he's great and his prices are competitive for the San Francisco Bay Area. He's booking quickly!
