Photography?

I have a VERY tight budget for my wedding, and many people have posted not to have family members take photos because you don't always get the best ones. I was wondering if anyone knows of any photographers who are really affordable but still take fairly decent pictures? So far the only place I have found that's even near my budget is Ayres Photography, and that's using the hourly rate. I don't really need any pics of the reception, so I only need someone for about 1 or 2 hours. TIA!!!

    I don't know about hourly rates, so I'm no help with that.  Have you thought about contacting the local colleges to see if any photography students would like to take pictures in exchange for a reference??

    My friend is using Ayres and she loves them.

    Hi Kristen! ;)

    You could also try Tess Moran, who is the photographer that my fiance and I are having photograph our wedding. She customizes everything to your liking, so there is no set package. Shes been really great so far!

    www.tessmoran.com

    Best of luck!

    Where are you located?  We used Dana Marie Photography out of Niagara Falls for our Buffalo wedding.  We love love love how the pictures came out.

    My friend is a photographer who just graduated last month. He has already offered to do mine and he has many friends who are fresh out of college and willing to do events at a fraction of other photographers to build their portfolios. He just got a job as a photographer with the Buffalo Bills, too. 

    [email protected] if you would like to get more info. 

    Good luck!

    I would contact some photographers you like and see if they offer an hourly rate or what they can do within your budget. Many times they will be able to accommodate you even if it isn't listed on their website. Good luck.

    Awesome!  We had such a good time with her and the album is being worked on now, I can't wait to have it in my hands.  It was so hard to narrow down those images because they were all so good.

    Check out Photography by LIz, her prices were lower than competition but she's a solo worker out of her house so you may wait a lil bit till you get the final ones done as she's doing it all herself.

    We're using Wendy Mitchell and she's fabulous!  I know she offers "by the hour" rates and she's very reasonable so I would check her out.  www.wendymitchellphotography.com
