Thats very strange! They negotiated LOTS with me..... I called them up and said that "we would really love to book with them, but they are out of our budget" and immediately he replied with a "come on down, we may be able to work something out"

Who did you talk to? I was contacted on here bc I had said that I thought they were very expensive and told through a forum mail that they do not negotiate bc they want their work to speak for itself. Honestly I just wanted them to come down like $300-400 and I would've prolly booked bc their work was amazing, but they wouldn't budget a penny. And honestly after being told "we never negotiate anything" I was then wondering how flexible they would be later on in the process.

We ultimately went with Patken after meeting with everyone. Price was only one factor. Lighthouse did have beautiful offices, but felt like they were trying too hard and they were the most expensive (and in my opinion not worth the extra money). Felt very comfortable with Patken and am happy we chose them. I think you can't go wrong with any of the choices though.

we used Patken when we booked with them originally we did so because my top 2 choices were already booked for our date and they were the most affordable for everything we got. Looking back now, i dont think i would have booked with them. I think i would have spent the extra money and gone with a smaller co. Im just not 100% thrilled with my photos and photography was one of my most important aspects of our wedding and i was expecting a lot more.

JMO though! many past brides have had PHENOMINAL pics taken by patken. This is just my experiance.
