If you're like me, the price of professional pictures for an event is down right depressing. Packages starting in the thousands, and extras adding up fast. Its one of those niches that you really can't get around. You can't go without pictures from your wedding or other event, but would like to feed your guests, too!
That is why I chose to go with Stuart Garfield, out of Lynn, MA. Stu is a nice guy who runs his business out of his home. He does a wonderful job, and his pictures are beautiful. He charges a standard fee for his services, and it included eight hours of his time at my wedding and 250 proofs in an album. After that, and this is the great part, everything is ordered by print. Buy as little or as much as you want. There is no set "pick 10 prints for your parent album". YOu choose. Pick 2 or pick 50. The prices are unbeatable, too. At the time, and this was April 2002, the cost of an 8x10 was $8. That meant that I could get every one of my 250 prints made into an 8x10 for the price of some of the other studios packages! Its truly an unbeatable value.
