Photographer for e-pics

Hi everyone!  I'm new...just got engaged on October 29 :)  My fi and I are looking around for good photogs in the Bloomsburg/hazelton/wilkes barre area to take our e-pics.  We are on a bit of a budget, so reasonably priced photogs who still take gorgeous pics is what I'm looking for.  Any help would be appreciated!

    I didn't do e-pics, but maybe something to think about is going to the campus at Bloomsburg and getting a photography student -- there are some amazing artists there who would be cheap and maybe even free if you allow them to use your pics in their portfolio. Or, if nothing else, a photography professor might be able to point the way to someone who isn't super expensive.

    Welcome and congrats on your engagement!!!If you are looking for a photographer who's reasonably priced for 9 hrs, contact Matt Wright from Fig Tree Photography.  I discovered him after booking with a pricier photographer, and he did my friend's wedding and was amazing.  Good luck1Matthew Wright Fig Tree Photography www.figtreephotography.com 267-243-9150

    (I wouldn't recommend doing the student thing for your wedding, but for posed-only pics for like 2-3 hours, I'd try it out)

    Oops--I'm an idiot.  I didn't see the note about it being for e-pics only.  Sorry!  But don't a lot of wedding photographers include an e-session?

    I used Sandor Welsh and he included the engagement shoot in our package.  He wasn't the cheapest, but I felt with him I was getting very good pictures for the money.  His contact information can be found here on his website www.sandorwelsh.com.  Some of my engagement photos can be found on the Photo Album page of my wedding website www.mollysbigday.com if you want to take a look at his work.  If you speak with him, feel free to say that I recommended him to you.  He's very nice, and came all the way out to Long Beach Island, NJ for our engagement shoot!
