I’m getting married on Sept. 20, 2012. I’m trying to find a good, affordable photographer for my wedding on the beach. I am on a very limited budget. Any recommendations. I can’t seem to find anything under $1,500.

I absolutely loved my photographer! He’s moved up to LA since my wedding, but I know he’d be happy to come to OC for a wedding. I don’t know what his package prices are now, but 2 years ago when I booked him, I was able to get e-pics, a bridal shoot (or whatever I wanted to use it for… we ended up doing family pics several months after the wedding), and the wedding itself all for $1100. I loved the pictures he took and he has such a fun personality! His name is William Dick and here’s his website:
If you go to his page and look in the wedding gallery, you can see a couple pictures from my wedding and engagement pictures. One is on the 4th page the 3rd from the right, and another is on the 5th page the 5th from the left (this is actually an e-pic not a wedding pic though. lol). Under the e-pics gallery, we have 2 on the first page, one is 2nd pic from the left, the other one is the last pic all the way to the right.
If you contact him, let him know that Teri and Anton sent you! 🙂

@melaniewv: The reality is that most full time professional photographers who are doing weddings in the Southern CA area start in the $2500-3000 ballpark. If you can up your budget a little you’ll find that your choices are going to get a lot better.

I really liked Mike Gardner when I spoke with him. I reviewed several of his full weddings and he had a consistently portfolio. I ended up going with a different photographer for style reasons, but I never hesitate to recommend Mike to OC brides on a budget. He was really sweet to talk to, he responded to my e-mails quickly and was not at all irritated by me asking for several full weddings to review his work. If I recall correctly, he quoted me a price for under $1,000 with images.
