We met Kristian of KOFoto on Friday night as well (wow — we are exciting! Looks like we traded the bar scene to peruse other peoples’ wedding albums).
We met at his in-home studio and were impressed off the bat. But, who wouldn’t be if they were invited into a room with some key photographs displayed on the wall *hello gorgeous 3′x4′ gloss wedding photo* as well as a comfy, contemporary couch, yummy wall colors and a 42″ tv displaying a 1000+ image slideshow. It was all very welcome and inviting.
We spoke with Kristian for over an hour about ideas, thoughts, our ceremony/reception details and ourselves.
He was so easy to talk to, and was brimming with super-memorable ideas.
Right now, he’s on our short list. We’re estimating him to meet all our needs at around $3,400 for 6 hours (his basic package starts at $2,500).
For the quality of work he does (and the care he takes in his photography), I think the price is totally fair.
The question of whether we are comfortable spending that amount (really, about 1/5 of our attempted budget — remember we are trying to do this without incurring debt, but we are realisitic) is now being mulled over.
Who knows, Kristian may be our guy. We’ll let you know
