My FI and I are eloping to Woodstock this fall. It's going to be great just being the two of us, but I'm wondering how will we have any pictures taken. We're doing almost everything that would be done at a normal wedding except it'll be the two of us. I really want great shots to convey the wonderfulness of the day.
I've reached out to a few photographers who have great portfolios - one of which I already feel a great connection with. Their prices aren't outrageous, but as I'm looking more and more at the buget, I'm not sure if we can swing $1000-1500 for 3-4 hours of photography service. It's kind of breaking my heart because I thought I could make it work, especially if I could charge the fee to my low interest credit card and pay over time, but a lot of photographers only accept cash/check.
Has anyone been in a similar position OR have pearls of wisdom? I probably will reach out to the photographers and be honest, but we'll see. I figured I'd start here for advice.
