I used Sue Walden. She was really nice. Her photgraphy is very photo journalistic, less artsy. In the end we wound up with a ridiculous # of pictures (+2000). This was in part bc we are a hard to photograph couple.
We definately like the photojournalistic style that all 3 have. It is really coming down to who we feel will suit our personalities and style. My fiance's biggest concern is that they are familiar with the ggrand hotel, i feel that as a photographer, especially if you are a really good one you can adapt to any surroundings you are handed.
I used sue walden for the photography for my wedding and the pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I specifically hired sue walden because I felt her photography was artistic. I have received numerous compliments on how my wedding pictures look like they are from a bridal magazine. She is a local photographer and I am sure she has done weddings at the grand and I was also pleased with her ideas on locations in that area (my wedding was at congress hall) that would make for great photo oppportunities.
i used sue walden and my wedding reception was at the grand and since then i"ve seen her shoot 2 other weddings there as well. i would recommend her to anyone - she adapts her style to her clients' wishes without losing her own identity and creativity - tell her what you are looking for and she'll deliver. my best friend and i both used her and we had totally different perpectives on what we wanted. her work was amazing with both of us - our pictures are classic yet unique and honest not posed or set up and our album is one of a kind she put it together for me its awesome. she is so easy to work with i hope you still consider her - you will not be dissappointed
thank you for your reply. We are still considering her. We just recieved some disturbing news that Karen Bergman has left the Grand. We are hoping this does not affect anything as she was a big part of us using the Grand. Was the Grand everything that they said and did they deliver or fall back on any promises made?
