Need photographer rec and average cost!

Hello all!

I still have awhile yet until my wedding. (February 20, 2011) I am in the process of seeking out a photographer. Any recommendations you have, I would love! And what does the average cost seem to be?

Thanks a bunch!

    Hi Michelle welcome to the board. The average cost will depend on what you are looking for. If you need parent albums, extra portraits etc. We looked at a lot of photographers in the area and ended up going with AlimarioPhoto that was a referral from a fellow knottie. We had our engagement session with him and we are so happy that we chose him! He is great to work with and was willing to customize a package to fit within our budget. HTH

    Hello Michelle.
    Welcome to the board.
    I am using Tina Mckendry-Yocume - 609-320-7937, she is really flexible and what not. Like she is doing my package for about 700 dollars. I  am getting alot for that so I mean like it just depends on what you want done for your day. Hope you find someone that suits your needs! happy planning!!!!

    We used Meyer Photography in Williamstown, www.richmeyerphoto.com is their site and their prices are on there.  They were great and I cannot say enough great things about them.  GL!

    I heard so many horror stories about photographers.  One of my friends actually had to take her photographer to court! 
    Anyway, I am using Cindy Patrick (she's out of Moorestown).  I know someone who used her and loved her.
    Check out her site.  www.cpatrickphoto.com. She is updating it right now,but you can still see some pictures on her blog.  It's around $3000, but I'll pay the money to get a good photographer who will take good pictures and actually give me the album afterwards.

    Hi,
    I am using Marc Anthony Photography, and we LOVE him.  His packages start at $2000.  But he is great because he won't nickel and dime you to death.

    Welcome, we are using David Humphrey's.  He has a bunch of packages, most of all we get all our photos on disc with the rights to reproduce them.  I've done it already with my engagement photos.  Much cheaper to pick the ones you like and order them from snapfish or shutterfly.

    Welcome! We used Jean and Steve Photography for our e pics and our wedding and the pictures came out great! We already have our proof book full of about 400 pics that we get to keep and soon we will be ordering our bridal album and parent albums.   We also get a disc with all of our pics and few 8 x 10 prints and some bigger sizes too.  I think their packages run from $1000-$4000, all depending upon what package you want.  GL

    I used Sarah Schulte Photography and she is amazing!  Her packages started at $2500 but I think they may have gone up a bit since.  Review in bio.

    We're using Melissa Schmid and have been VERY happy so far (just had epics).  Her prices were very resonable and included 2 photographers (her & her husband), so that was a huge plus for us.

    We're using Inger from Keepsake Studios!  She did my bat-mitzvah and my brother's bar-mitzvah and she's fantastic!  She is totally willing to work with any budget, big or small and she takes wonderful pictures.  She is very easy to work with and is extremely accomodating!  Check her out at www.keepsakestudios.com 

    She does a practice run, no strings attached to see what she's like.  My FI and I are the 2nd couple featured on her website for the practice runs...at the University of Delaware (where we both went)
