Lansing area photogs

yes i'll post this on lansing board as well, but it's not a very busy board & know there are a few lansing brides on here. helping a friend w/her wedding - she's looking for a good but inexpensive photog in the lansing area. i've given her info for the popular local ones as most will travel, but also looking for lansing recommendations. under $1500 but would rather spend closer to $1000. TIA

    We met with this woman when we were looking for a photographer in the Lansing area.  She was really nice, but we decided to go with someone else.  I think she was in that price range, but it's been a long time since i met with her. www.jessicacornmanphotography.com

    We are using Save the Moments Photography.  You can go on their website to see the packages.  It's nice now because you can pick and choose what you want to create a package or can choose a package.  This husband/wife team have been wonderful to work with.PS Their studio is in Mason. HTH! :)

    Late answering here, I don't get to the board too often. We used Matthew Dae Smith. [url]http://tinyurl.com/mg89pl[/url] He is a photojournalist. Really beautiful work. We paid a bit more than your friend's range -- for the entire day, and he traveled for us -- but he has several packages at various prices. Also he not only didn't mind the other guests taking snaps, he helped us to pose for some of them!
