So, you’ve decided to get married. Congratulations! Now that that’s out of the way, I would strongly recommend you do yourselves a favor and hire Jared Beasley to be your photographer. Our initial consultation was very friendly and laid-back. It felt more like catching up with an old friend than organizing the meticulous documentation of one of the raddest days of your life. Did I mention that my then fiancée and I had given almost no consideration to any of the logistics of coordinating a wedding? We hadn’t; and it’s a lot. You’ll see. . . Anyway, Jared was a huge help with deciding which pics we wanted taken and where and with whom. Then he helped us work out a timeline for the actual wedding. Usually, you have to pay a different person to do this; and they’re usually mean. Jared is not mean.
We agreed to two sessions—one “engagement” session in addition to the actual wedding. For our engagement shoot, Jared met us at our house and took pics of us walking around being adorable. I thought it would be weird and uncomfortable but it wasn’t. Jared made us feel very comfortable. We laughed; we joked around. A good time was had by all. I’m not just saying that. I’m one of those dorks who hates taking pictures, and I had a blast that day. We all did a lot of laughing and you can really see that in the pics. The dog loved him too, and she can be a tough lady to please.
I’m writing this review 10 days after our wedding, but I could have written it FIVE days after our wedding because that’s when we saw our finished product. You read that right. We had our beautifully staged and edited wedding pics less than one week later. I’ve heard of people waiting months for wedding pics. This was the icing on the cake (pun very much intended). He’s cool, he’s talented, he’s flexible, and he works almost suspiciously quickly. We can’t say enough good things about Jared or recommend him more highly. Weddings are wonderful, but they’re also crazy stressful. Do yourselves a favor and eliminate a few sources of stress by hiring Jared.
