    Hi and welcome to the board. Some photographers have a flat rate and there are some who will customize a package for you. You just have to shop around your area amd explain to them what you want. Are you not having a recpetion or dinner after the ceremony ?

    I agree with the PP; there are some that are willing to work with you. Especially if it's a slow month they would be willling to have an hour of business vs. none at all. Just ask!

    Do you want pics taken during dinner ? Or are you cell phone/regular camerain it for the dinner ? Just in case they say you need a minuim of 2 hours..put that in the back of your mind. Here in my area some of our photogs were charging 300 and up just for the ceremony alone. So consider having pics done during the dinner too.

    Welcome to the board. I would check wedding wire and crigslist for local photographers and ask if they would build a package based on your needs
