Looking for amateur photographer

Hello Chicago ladies!  Former Detroit knottie here.  I have a friend getting married this fall in Chicago.  They are having a very low key, informal ceremony/reception and they have a small budget.  They were hoping to find an experienced amateur photographer to photograph their event.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  Thanks!

    I've seen ads (and knotties) talk about Jolie Images, and their ads are pretty cheap.

    I'm using Lilly Photography, very reasonably priced and does fantastic work!! We are SO excited to use him, he's very personable too!

    Good luck, and such a nice friend you are for helping her out with this :)

    Kathleen (kthame) on the boards is really into photography and has done a few different shoots (kids, trash the dress, etc). You could page her, but she's not on the board as much I don't think. If you PM me your friends info I could pass it along :)

    I am using Moments In Time Chicago.  He works with my fiance, he has a great inexpensive package, however he is not an amateur.  We went to several before  we decided on him. We just wanted to check prices, not work, he is very professional.  He offers all photos, an upscale album with case, for $1500.  This particular album is about $2300 elsewhere and that doesn't include the pictures.  Check out his website:
