    I have no idea who my favorite photojournalist photographer is, but I like Anne Constance who Dddelo used and Josh Lynn I believe a few girls have used him.

    I used John Arcara and was very happy with my pictures.  He is in Red Bank.

    We're using Matt Rainey. He photographs for The Star-Ledger and won a Pulitzer a few years ago. Very nice guy. His blog: http://mattrainey.wordpress.com/ and someone else's blog with some of our e-pics: http://swoononline.blogspot.com/2009/11/liberty-island-engagement-shoot.html

    I also like the photos by Josh Lynn, Neil from One Perfect Moment, David Lau, Amy Newman, Erica Lyn and Danielle Richards.

    Also, check out the Wedding Photojournalist Association's website: http://www.wpja.com/

    i used anne constance (as kle said) and i loved her. her work is amazing, and she's just a kind person.  If you're looking for her to do a wedding in 2010 though, she's not available - she's pregs with twins right now.

    What is your budget?  That's really helpful in suggesting people. 

    My favorite somewhat local wedding photojournalists are any of the photographers at Christian Oth Studio, Brian Dorsey, Karen Wise and Marie Labbancz.  I also really like the style of Chris Jorda and Todd Laffler.  They're more reasonable than the aforementioned.

    We used Shawn and Jake from Christian Oth.

    ohhhh, I saw the website www.em34.com, his stuff is amazing but he is really expensive.  I really like John Arcara and David Lau!  They are both amazing as well!

    I love Anne Constanec I wanted her to do my wedding...but she was supposed to be IN a wedding that weekend. I tried to book her more then a year out so I can't imagine she knew she was preggers but she is due 2 days before my wedding!! Too funny!

    Anyway she is fantastic but we ended up going with John Arcara who we love!! I know Josh Lynn often shoots with him so they are both great choices.

    Pebblesbridetobe- Emin is HIGHLY negotiable.  He said anyone I referred got some sort of discount right off the top (I forget how much). I didn't pay anywhere close to his advertised price.

    Pebblesbridetobe- Emin's prices dropped dramatically over the past few months. his website now says his starting rate is only $2000.

    We're using Louis Schroder, who we found on the WPJA website. I highly recommend looking on that site to see lots of photojournalistic styles. We picked Louis because we loved his pics and his prices were a lot more reasonable than some of the other photographers on that site.

    the studio photographers! although "studio" is in their name, it is somewhat decieving. it is a family run buisness and the photographers are a father and son.

    Try giving ESP Studio in Hasbrouck Heights a call. It's a family-run business with a graphic artist (daughter)  designing the album, all-inclusive. Also very professional and kind.
