Hi guys! We are getting married next April in New Orleans, and I am working on nailing down a photographer. My mom is having a hard time justifying a price (we are looking at 2 right now - one is about $2900 with an assistant and a proof book, the other is quoting $3600+ with an assistant and 2 glossy coffee table books). We are probably needing about 8 hours of coverage.
Does anyone know a good quality photographer in the area that might run a little bit cheaper? Basically, I'm trying to see if this is even possible. Good photography is important to me, but I'd like to appease my mother if possible.
