Take a Picture, It'll Last Longer...
I made too many phone calls & logged too many web hours trying to find the perfect photographer while we are in the Black Hills. Personally, I think photography is something that should be of excellent quality. These will be your memories so you should not skimp on a photographer.
With us getting married in South Dakota & then having a party a month later we need two different photographers. To ask the same photographer to travel 5 hrs is too costly. So the ideal situation is to find a photographer willing to give us reprint/copyrights. This way we can mesh the two sessions together & create our own wedding album.
I knew right away that I would ask a high school classmate of ours, Mandie Haman, to do our engagement, family & reception photos. She has kindly agreed to do our photography for a great price & I get reprint rights. It's a steal!

After many, many phone calls & emails I reached a deal with Angela Pierson Photography in the Black Hills. She will photograph the wedding day & ceremony (we are not having a reception that day). She also agreed to reprint rights.

Total price for photos & editing: $1,650 not too shabby since we maintain copyright.
