I am getting married at the Hotel Marlowe next fall. I am beginning the daunting process of picking a photographer. I am completely SHOCKED by the prices I've seen so far! Does anyone have any recommendations for photographers that fall into the $2-4k range? This does not necessarily My wedding will most likely be very traditional as far as style, though I prefer having a photographer with a unique or independently-crafted style. I am also not really into corny wedding photography AT ALL. I want nice, realistic photos that simply capture the emotions of the day.
Let me know if you have any suggestions or positive/negative experiences with a particular photog!
