Any disney photographer recommendations?

I'm having a hard time choosing my photography package. We are having an escape wedding and feel that I should probably upgrade the package since the escape wedding only includes 20 5x7 prints. I was also hoping for a disney photographer referall. I asked my wedding planner but she said they are all very good. Not sure what to do!!! please help!

We had Regina for our vow renewal and she was great to work with. I was very happy with our pictures. I looked around at the photos people posted in their planning journals and really liked her work so I put in a request for her. Good luck!

Regina, Regina, Regina!!!! We had her for our MK and EPCOT shoots and she was fantastic!

We had Amy for our honeymoon shoot but was dissappointed really... though I know others really loved her.

If I was going to do any shoot again, i'd request Regina.

Do you have to get a Disney official photographer? Maybe you can hire outside of Disney and get a style you prefer that fits you better.

I requested Amy, Mike Strickland, and Regina for our VR in April because of seeing their work from brides that had them for their weddings. I did not get either of them (one was on vacation, one was getting married and one was the photog at that wedding)!

So we were assigned Stephanie. She was good and very easy to work with. We upgraded to the Cinderella "D" package (I think). We're getting 24 8x10s in an album, the DVD, and an 11x14 photo (plus 4x6 copies of every single picture). We LOVE the pictures, but the only thing I was disappointed in was the fact she only took 130 pictures (we got just over 150 pictures but some are the same shot only in black & white).

Here is a link to our photos online: http://www.collages.net/disneyweddings

DH & I talked about getting an outside photographer, but honestly because of the cost we went with the upgrade through Disney.

We had Ty and Mike Strickland and I think Amy on our list of likes! (I think), they had an edgier style so that's why we prefer them. I regularly read about brides that have used Amy or Regina, so I think they are more common and seem to be great! I think it boils down to what you are looking for in terms of style. Then, search their names through reviews on here to see what brides say about their experiences with that particular photographer!

Thank you so much for the great info everyone. I love the pictures they are beautiful. I will have to do some more research since I have been thinking about an outside photographer, mostly because of the time frame of the escape wedding. I really want to take advantage of the boardwalk location. Thanks everyone, happy weddings!!

Regina!!! We had her for our engagement shoot and loved both her and the pictures. We had her again for our wedding this past Saturday and she showed us some pictures she shot and they were just amazing! I can't wait to see all of them! And we have her booked for our MK bridal shoot in August!

So I'm still undecided. So far i've been looking at Randy CHapman, the roots, and Amy Alexander from disney photography. So if any of you fabulous disney brides out there want to post some of your pics from these photographers,it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks ladies!!

There are loads of great albums on Randy Chapman's facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!...hy/59588386276

That is what made us take the plunge and choose him for our wedding

Did they change the basic Escape photography?? I thought it only came with a 20 print 4x6 album not 5x7?

Randy was our main photographer on our wedding day and i highly recommend him and yes its true what every disbride says about him. I deal with photographers all the time and must say hes one of the best i've worked with. He's really lovely and his pics are fantastic. I've yet to hear a bride whos had him and not been satisified (if there is one).

Personally i think Randy under prices himself if you look at all the other photographers prices who are mentioned on here, which is a bonus for all us disbrides. Randy also never clock watches so your more than likely get a lot longer photography time than what you have paid for.

You wont be sorry if you book him.
