    Both Majestic Studios and Digital Weddings (Dutchess County) do both photo and video. Lots of times the video is a different company than the photographer. We used Majestic, Digital was our second choice.

    Just checked your date - you have plenty of time!

    Best thing I can suggest - go to bridal shows. There will be ton coming up the beginning of the year. Pok Grand, Villa Borghese, The Links, Villa Barone.

    Best way to meet a bunch without pressure. Good luck!

    When we got engaged, I went to a lot of bridal shows and met and talked with the photo/ /veideo / DJ people. It was a great way to gage their personality and see their work. (And when it came down to deciding, it was great to have had the option of (briefly) meeting with so many of them.

    I am using Nick Carter. His website is www.nickcarterweddings.com. You can email him for a price list, he has very affordable packages and is really sweet. I love his work, and if it wasn't for this board I wouldn't have found him and been so happy with our choice! 
    Ricky Restiano does amazing work. I don't know his prices because I never met with him but I know many people who have used him and he's great. Nick told us of the videographer he works with usually but for us the company was too pricey so we went with another company. Ricky works with a company called Moving Pictures for video I believe, and I've seen videos from there and they are really nice. Again, not sure of the prices though.

    Good Luck!

    Check out Alexa Miller of Bright Bird Photography - You will not be disapointed! Amazing photographer and very reasonable.  I have seen lots of "wedding photographers" in the area who charge ridiculous prices and arent even close to as talented.

    I'm jusing Michael Tomassi from "Picture This" in Danbury CT ... he also works in conjunction w/ Carlos from CMV (Custom Made Video) I found Carlos' prices to be really reasonable and his style is unobtrusive which I like - I don't want a camera in everyone's face I just want him to capture the moments I inevitablly will mis....if you use Carlos Mike give you a break. I loved Mike's work. he's traditional and journalistic and has different packages.  Good luck.
