Photography/Videography

Hi ladies! :)  I'm so excited  -  after a few months of up-in-air planning & looking at EVERY. SINGLE. VENUE....we finally found the place & signed the contract!  Whew!  Laughing

So, anyway, we are getting married at the Stroudsmoor (Ridgecrest) in Stroudsburg.  I am looking to see if anyone can offer up any recommendations on a photographer/videographer in that area?  I am looking for a more photojournalistic style, & someone who is a decent price.  I hope to hire someone who can handle both the photos and video.  I'd also like someone who will just give me the photos on a disc & let me print them myself or make my own albums.  Any personal recommendations would be lovely! 

Thanks in advance.

    One of my friends got married at the Stroudsmoor almost 3 years ago and had a GREAT wedding.  I think they had one of the smaller venues there (can't remember the name).  They used Fahey Photography who traveled from the Pittston area.  My friend was really happy with her album and since I have gotten engaged I have booked them as well (Fahey also did another friends wedding last year).

    Good luck with your planning!

    I'd highly recommend Melanie Rose Photography. I know her from High School and she does amazing work! She's from NYC area but travels all over and doesn't charge a huge fee for travel. I am actually doing a mini session with her for our 1st anniversary. Check her out.

    Here's her website: http://www.melanierosephotos.com/

    Here's her facebook page with another photog she does weddings with:

    We are also getting married at Ridgecrest in July and are using Josh Finsel & Amber Breiner Photography... unfortunately this may not be of 100% help because they don't do the videography... but the experience is super personal.
    We recently received our engagement photos and they were spectacular and are so so excited to work with them again for our wedding. My favorite things: they're a husband and wife team so essentially you get 2 for the price of one, they're local-ish to the stroudsmoor, you have the rights to own all of your photos and print them wherever you please and do with them what you please, and they are just the nicest couple and so easy to work with. Find them at www.jfabphotography.com

    Good luck!!

    I just got married a few weeks ago and used Steve Klaver. He was AMAZING and had such great ideas. He's more of a photojournalistic approach though if you like that. He was very easy to work with and took some beautiful shots (he showed us some that he took at the wedding and sent little sneak peeks here and there)

    I shot a wedding at the Stroudsmoor in August.  It is a BEAUTIFUL location, you made a fantastic choice!

    I worked in TV news for a number of years so the journalistic approach plays a big part in my videos.  Check us out and if you have any questions about us or videography in general feel free to ask!
