I’m not talking about within your own town. I’m not talking about the pretty-great guy with the nice camera that you hired because he meshed well with you, had a great personality, and ran reasonable rates.
I am talking about the photographers whose images have made your armhair stand on end. The person whose photos you saw and thought, “Man, I wish he didn’t live Tokyo or Hawaii or Denmark, and also that I had the starting price of a BMW to spend on photos…”
That guy or girl whose photos have brought tears to your eyes. Who are they?

If I had an unlimited amount of money to spend on photographers, I’d use Mary and the Joel of Blue Window Creative. They take amazing photographs which produce emotions I didn’t know I’d feel for pictures of other people.

I lost track of the guy I thought was THE BEST–had to delete the bookmark because it was keeping me from being realistic about my own options–but I think this guy is really good.
(Fortunately, I ended up finding a really good photographer in my price range.)

I couldn’t be more thrilled– we are booking the best photographer we’ve seen! I stumbled on his site during the venue search and nothing else compared. I just love his artsy style and the unconventional angles he uses– it definitely is US all the way!

Elizabeth Messina – OMG – so much romance in her lens – http://www.kissthegroom.com/
John Michael Cooper of altF http://altf.com/ – he does groundbreaking work but was more edgy than we wanted
and I actually believe our photographer is up there – the fabulous and talented Chelsea Nicole – http://www.chelseanicoleblog.com very fresh and unique style

Honestly, our photographer. I love everything about her style–I found her over a year before we got engaged and bookmarked her site ASAP.
Also, Jose Villa, but he has a similar style to our photographer. I appreciate almost all photography, but I have a very narrow definition of “omg.”

Currently, I’m really loving Nirav Photography http://niravphotography.com/blog/ and I dig Kyle Hepp’s quirky work: http://www.kylehepp.com
I also think that Susan Stripling (mentioned above) is fabulous.

So how much would wedding coverage start at for one of the top photographers? Particularly interested in what Susan Stripling might charge…but know it’s way out of budget so not worth contacting!
