We in Nashville are just in luck because a very talented photographer, Matthew Michaels is located in the area and is offering a killer photography deal on livingsocial. He is offering two separate deals. First is a $75 hour long photoshoot on location with a CD of 30 images and an 8X10 or 8X12 print. We will use this for our engagement photos. 30 images is plenty especially if we use them for a photobook and the 8x10 we can use for our guest book similar to the picture below.
The second offer is fantastic as well.For a $1000 investment, we can get six hours of photography, an online slideshow and gallery so that friends and family can view the pictures, full image processing and digital negatives of all files. I've email Matthew about whether these deals give us the copyright to print images independently of him and they do although he does recommend some printers. We will use this for our wedding day photography. If we pick a location that we can hold the wedding ceremony and reception then we can cut down on travel time having him for 2 hours before the ceremony, the ceremony itself and then the reception.
But photography for $1075 and a $100 tip bring us to $1175, an awesome deal!
