@eecuadrado:  I think you might have a difficult time finding someone at the price point who is experienced, reliable and talented.  However, you may be able to find someone that is just starting out and trying to build their business/portfolio.  Unfortunately, from what I’ve read, it seems that prices in the northeastern US tend to be much higher than in other areas.

Check criagslist sometimes there is new talent on there.  I had the same problem as you we orig budgeted 2000 and after seeing the what we could get for that we went up to 3000.  I booked most of my ppl our of the philly area so feel free to ask away.

If you’re willing to decrease your time, AMP Studios was wonderful for me. I got their five hour package and it was perfect and right at our budget, and they were great to work with.

They have tons of galleries on their site as well so you can see their work.

We are using Chris Hayes who I highly recommend!

http://www.chrishayesphotography.com/index.htm

He lists prices on his page too (a rare find for a photographer!) and they are pretty good.  8 hours is slightly higher than your $1500 but not too bad.

He did my brothers wedding and has since done a friend and cousins as well.  My parents actually ran into him by chance at two weddings this past year as well!

He has lots of sample slideshows on his site as well.  Some of which are from my brothers weding 🙂

He’s super friendly and great to work with!

@eecuadrado:  We are using a photographer out of the Cherry Hill area called Mary & Roy (maryandroy.com).  They definitely had a few packages and options within your budget.

I recently had a meeting with a photographer and his prices started at $1500. He does all day coverage. He is just starting out on his own but is currently an assistant to another photographer. http://www.skuzmaphotography.com

@Mill:  Chris did my friend Kellys wedding a few years back.  He was good for his price range and he runs specials on craigslist too.
