Best Value in Hampton Roads
Everyone knows planning a wedding can be expensive. Good photographers cost $3K, $4K, and sometimes $7,000 - YIKES!!!
And while those photographers have a ton of experience, great reviews, expensive equipment, and are probably worth every penny, that is simply too much money for some couples. Since Heather started her studio over 10 years ago, she has heard COUNTLESS stories about cheaper photographers canceling at the last minute, never delivering the photos, not having backup equipment, or generally acting or dressing unprofessionally.
And she wanted to help.
So Heather and her husband Rob founded 757 Studios and collaborate with local studios and professional photographers to get an AMAZING rate for couples - connecting clients with reliable, trustworthy, and experienced wedding photographers they can trust.
"I want to help every couple get good pictures on their wedding day, without going into debt to do it," explained Heather. "So the mission of 757 Studios is simple - to provide each couple with an experienced photographer who will be reliable, professional, and capture the important moments. Simple as that."
How does it work?
The standards are very high for photographers at 757 Studios. With a MINIMUM of 10 years of professional experience, our photographers have degrees in photography or own their own photography studios (and some have both). ALL are award-winning with The Knot Best of Award, Wedding Wire's Couple's Choice Award, or are professional newspaper photographers who have been published worldwide. Several have been VA Photographer of the Year, won a Pulitzer Prize, and most have won national awards. Most importantly, EVERY photographer has a similar candid style with a focus on capturing the moments & story of your day.
As amazing as all of our photographers are, everyone can use an extra job or two, which is where we come in.
We reach out to only the very best, and hire them for a HUGE discount because we handle all the extras like editing & toning. The photographers love us because they save time and can fill in holes in their calendars. And couples love us because they get AMAZING photographers for a fraction of the price.
Are we Right for you?
We are right for you if you are looking for ONE great photographer and are willing to give up some of the frills and extras like two photographers, professional albums, or advanced retouching (that random guy wandering past your beach ceremony is part of your story after all). Our couples get the rights to the photos so they can print their own album and have the freedom to do what they want with the photos instead of paying us to do it for them. They want their story captured by someone reliable, friendly, and experienced.
Finally, we are a good fit if you prefer a natural, candid style of photography that focuses on moments instead of details. And if you LOVE the idea that you can hire us to do the hard work of calling around and finding someone amazing for you.
About Our Photographers
Since many of our photographers are charging premium prices for their services, they are not hired by us until 3-6 months before the wedding day. We do recommend you book at least 6 months in advance however, since we can only accept 1 wedding for popular Saturday dates. Photographers have 2-3 professional camera bodies, 2-3 flashes or lights, 3-5 professional lenses, and adhere to our strict professional code of ethics (no jeans or t-shirts allowed).
