I am looking for a photographer to do our ceremony only. I have several friends and family members who take good pictures for the reception, and I really only care about the ceremony pics.
So, we're out in Eastern Colorado. FAR east. Vona. It's past Limon. The wedding is in August this year, I've asked my FIFML to look into photographers, but no luck yet. Mostly people have family friends do it, and there's one or two people around who do, but the quote I've seen was anywhere from 700-2000$. We need a photographer for about three hours.
So I need to look into photographers who will travel out this far, for only a ceremony. Or someone in this area I don't know of or haven't heard of. I have a very small budget for the wedding, we're paying for it ourselves, so anywhere in the range of $500 is the ticket. We don't even need prints, just digital copies. (It's common to ask for the digital copies, isn't it?) I had 'roommate' pictures taken in college, and you would have thought we were asking him to give us his camera when we asked for the digital pictures.
I have also seen a lot of horror stories about Davids Bridal. I currently have an appointment, and I would like to find some other suggested places to go dress shopping while I'm going into Denver. Any suggestions would be awesome!
