Photographer - HELP!

Hey all.. I in the hunt for a wedding photographer..

Looking for 8 hours, proofs, high-res CD for around $2,000...

Also looking for the photos to be a good variety with lots of candids.. not to posey posey.

Suggestions!?

    Kris Norman Photography - tell her Erin sent you. She has very reasonably priced packages (way under $2000) and her husband will help the day of so you get two photographers!

    Kristen Dawn is $1695 for 5 hours, so you would definitely be around the $2000 range if you add the hours on at her rate ($150/hr).  Great candid shots.

    I am using Chris Cook, he is a bit more than your budget, but he might customize something for you. He was really accommodating, and let us change somethings to our package. He had an album for us to view of a wedding he did at our location which really impressed me! His website is www.cookphoto.com  hope that helps!

    Im using Paul Blackmore.  He has a website...http://web.me.com/paulblackmore/Site_2/Home.html

    .He is a former Cape Cod Times photographer and has a photojournalistic style.  I didnt want to be posing all night (except for certain family pics).  He is reasonable and gives you a CD with all pics and rights to photos.  He also takes a pic of you and husband walking down aisle and prints a copy for all guests at wedding.

    I think You Ought to be in Pictures has packages around your budget - they are a husband and wife team that my SIL used and really liked.

    My friend used "you ought to be in pictures".  They took GREAT pics but were more of posey posey style and if you dont buy an album (just buy CD) they dont remove shine from ppl's faces.

    I absolutely fell in love with this company not just bc they offer other packages services as well as photography but we had the same price point as yourself. we didn't want all posey pics neither. they have what is called "the Pros Standards" which includes 8 hours at all times, high res cd with all copyrights, unlimtied number of shots, web hosting, Your choice of an exclusive 36-page album.* All Pros albums are available in a combination of:  Matted or Flush-Mountedmore info

    Self or Custom Designmore info

    Standard or Metallic Papermore info

    40 to 100 additional loose and finished Bonus Prints as 8x10 or smaller.*


    they're albums are amazing. they host wine & cheese events where u go and get to experience who they are and what they do. they have albums to sample and u can meet with them. we just clicked with this one guy Peter Su and I can't wait to see what he comes up with. We also got a discount on 2 parents albums by just talking about our budgets. so we went over $200 but we got a parent album for each parents to keep. And I loved that we could have a simply album or a more detailed album and we'd be creating how the album turned out. You get so much freedom with them I love it. they are truly worth the price with what they offer.

    Hi

    Were working with Jennifer Vincente, and shes out of Plymouth Ma! She was super friendly and easy to work with. She did my friends wedding and the pictures came out great. I'm not sure if shes within your budget, but you can check it out. Shes got a lot of packages to work with. We splurged a little more on photography, because we want great pictures. Her website is http://www.jennivphotography.com/.

    Good Luck

    Heather

    Try Paul Blackmore or Vince Dewitt. They are both fantastic photographers and will work with you and your budgets. They're also both photojournalists and shoot weddings with that eye.

    Portrait New England is doing our wedding... They are all about the candids. I love that they touch up every single picture they give back to you- they all look uniform and classy. Check them out: www.portraitnewengland.com

    Kristen Dawn Photography.  She is very sweet, great to work with and very reasonable.  She will do posed, but takes a more photo-journalistic approach.  She is the daughter of the couple from You Ought to Be in Pictures.
