Photographer HELP!!!!!

Hey all - I could really use some help finding a photographer!  We need one for around (hopefully under) $3,000.  We are getting married on October 2, 2010.  The problem is that I am in Los Angeles and won't be back on the Cape until the summer.  This is the last of the BIG things that needs to be taken care of.  I just want someone who is talented, cool, and unobtrusive.  Any thoughts??????  Anyone I should avoid???????  Thanks!

    We used Elizabeth Horne (www.elizabethhornephotography.com).  I highly recommend her - she was so great to work with and took fantastic photos!  Everything was online by the time we got home from the honeymoon and we got our proofs and digital images just a few weeks later.  Also, she's definitely within your budget.  Pics in bio if you'd like to take a look.  GL! :)

    We're using Scott Metzger (www.metzgerstudios.com) and are so excited to work with him.  I found him on the Boston board, so you might try there as well for suggestions.  

    Oh and he planned his own wedding cross country (San Francisco to Boston) so he will be sympathetic to your plight!  Great guy.

    We are using Chris Cook, of Cook Photo. He is located in Dennis, and has really awesome photo journalistic approach. He is costing us just around $3000, but that includes two photographers.  He is so nice and has a great website and blog you can checkout. I was so impressed, when we met with him he had an album of a wedding he had shot at our location ready for us to view! Good luck!

    We are using Elizabeth Horne-- I am really excited and think she will be great. I think she will actually at or just slightly over your budget though. I have heard good things about Kristin Young and she is definitely within your budget, but no personal experience.

    Let me recommend Rob Strong!  I wished I could have used him, but he was busy on the day of our wedding.  His photos are really nice and he is in the price range.  He is so flexible and took so much time to talk to me even before we found out we couldn't work together.  He was prompt with calls and reliable.  His website is something like strong weddings.  Luckily I found another awesome photographer, but I'm still sad about not having him.  If anyone books him tell him that I recommended him!  :)

    We used Amy Dykens, and I absolutely loved her.  She is so sweet and unobtrusive, but got every shot I wanted and was super creative.

    We are using John LoConte and he is definitely under your budget. www.johnlophoto.com. He is a super sweet guy and does nice, unique work.  We didn't get engagement photos, but did meet with him and he seems very easy to work with.  He is more of a photojournalistic style and is Boston-based.  He will travel to the Cape for a minimal fee.

    As a wedding photographer, it was really important to me to get the best photos! We decided to go with Robin Falk out of Boston, she is great and you will get a lot for your budget...probably a lot more than you will with another Cape based photographer. 

    robinfalk.com..beautiful stuff! 

    Good Luck!
