Planning Your Wedding Part 2: Photographers

So. Last week we discussed our favorite spots in Austin for getting hitched - if you’re lucky enough to have decided on a location, it’s time to move on to choosing the team that will be documenting the big event: your wedding photographer(s). 

When it comes to weddings, the old saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" could not be more important or true.  With that, we believe that each couple should spend as much time as they can allot to looking at wedding photographers - photographers each have their own style of shooting and editing, so finding the right one - one that fits your wedding style, budget and personal vision -  is important to make sure your memories are preserved in the best possible way.

We at La Fleur Vintage know many of the photographers around town and are always happy to recommend those we've worked with and those who have a reputation for being the best of the best.  Austin is a haven for talent and while it would be impossible to name every photographer that we know, the following is a list of some of our favorites.  All of these people are gifted artists, and they each have their own distinct style, price points and wedding packages. Take a gander*, and get inspired!

  The Nichols

Yeah, I want to be them, too.

This husband and wife team has been featured on the Knot and well-known wedding blogs such as Style Me Pretty multiple times. Their photos are gorgeously soft and romantic, with a gauzy fairy-tale feel.

 Christina Carroll

Clean and stylish, Christina's photos capture those little quiet particularly well. She is based in Austin and has been featured in the Knot, Junebug Weddings and Austin Style Unveiled.

 Kristi Wright

Secret Garden?
Also based in Austin, Kristi's photos have a beautifully subtle and intimate feel to them. Make sure you check out the rockin' reception photos at Wild Onion Ranch now up on her blog - looks like she really captured the spirit of that party!

Paige Newton

That, ladies and gentlemen, is what a real mustache looks like.
Paige's photo skills will bring out the cool kid in you, and will capture every ounce of romance and fun to be had on your big day. She's been featured in Tribeza and just about every blog under the sun, so don't skip checking out her online gallery. 

Bill McCullough

Bill McCullough's work was quite a surprise the first time we saw it, and a very, very good surprise at that. His style is fairly unusual for wedding photography, and it makes an amazing statement, one described on his site as "mysterious, creative" and "film noir." 

Eric Hegwer

Eric's photos are clean and classic - if you're going for traditionally pretty, this is your man.

She and He.

Based out of Austin and New York, She and He were featured in the Knot's Best of Weddings 2010, for good reason! We couldn't resist adding in this shot of a cute couple in front of Austin's cutest wall as a bonus peek at She and He's work!

We love you too, Austin. 
Here's hoping this post helped out some of our newly engaged couples trying to figure it all out!
