Photographers

The next thing I'm trying to get done is booking a photographer.  We've already met with Figtree and Shelley&Keith and I was hoping that you girls (and guys) would be able to provide me some suggestions of a couple others to look into.  We loved the family team aspect of both photographers we met with, especially since we're really looking for more than one photographer.  We're trying to stay around $3000, but don't necessarily need albums (at least not right away).Thanks in advance for your help!Laura

    We're using Louis Schroder. He's a photojournalistic photographer and I think we're getting a great package for under 3K.

    there is a spreadsheet of photographers with prices and which knotties used them, I will try to post it, but I dont know how to make it clicky, plus I have some others that were suggested to me. http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pXpE3HK2N6G_EANWFc0GCIA&output=html http://www.jenrinaldiphotography.com/This is who did my engagement session. I believe she charges $1500. She is amazing!!! www.kathleenhertelweddings.comhttp://www.artbydna.com/aaron/ - I got a $2200 quote from him that included 7 hours of coverage, all images on CD, two "photographer's pick" CDs, a leather album and two coffee table books. There's also an additional $125 for events outside of NYC. http://www.nickcarterweddings.com/ - $2100 for 8 hours coverage, one album, one set of 4x6 proofs for all images and a CD of high-res files. For $2800, you get all that plus two parent albums, and 100 thank you cards. We didn't meet with them in person so this is more of an FYI than a "recommendation." I have a photographer and an assistant, our album, 2 parent albums, a proof book, and a DVD with all images to print from for $2,500.www.alkenphoto.com www.sharonsweddingart.com You can buy your albums ala carte at a later date. We're paying $2000 for 9 hours of coverage, a high res edited DVD w the rights to reprints, 3 month online allery, and gallery announcements Sonia at Saffron Studio... she was a blast to work with, and does have an assistant, but you might have to specify 2nd photographer. www.saffronstudio.com. I think her # on the site may need to be updated, so just email her info @safronstudio.com if you like her work. You can try www.nicolem.com She has her prices right on her site. try Chris jorda but I think he's more like $2500 too but he gets a lot of good recs on here. Sharon’s wedding art has ala carte packages that don't include albums for around there.There is also Erica Lynn, Jeri houseworth, elizabeth Millay,Chris Mastalia, nicole M, sarah postma, sharon curia

    I'm using Chris Jorda. He's super nice, very chill and takes beautiful photos. We did our engagement pics a couple weeks back (and got a second shooter, unexpectedly). I'm *dying* to see the photos =)www.chrisjorda.com/

    Marc Anthony Photography. He's based in South Jersey but I know he travels. I saw a wedding on his blog that he shot at The Aberdeen. His work is remarkable and starts at $2350 for all day coverage and two photographers, one being him. Oh and don't ask about my username. I'm mostly on the south jersey board an have been through it a million times. Lol. His website is www.premierweddings.tv/wordpress

    I am using Shelley & Keith! But, we also met with Romeo Creations. Their work was amazing, and was actually a little cheaper, just not quite what I was looking for.

    Try my photographer Matt with Matthew douglas photography, I believe his second photographer is his wife, since you like the "family team" aspect. www.mdgphotography.com -Stef
