Good heavens, they are so expensive nowadays!
I am looking for packages under $2k, including print rights, and 6hr+ coverage.
I am located in Oklahoma, but anyone from Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, or a nearby area would also be genuinely looked at!
If you know of a great one, holla at ya girl.
My main contender right now has a package of $2100 with a $200 engagement session add-on available. 500+ edited photos with print rights.

@MissOtter: You should post this on your local boards.

@MissOtter: The reason you’re having trouble is that most pros cannot afford to run a legitimate, profitable, tax paying business and charge under ~$2500. Maybe try Craigslist for newer/amateur photographers if you need to stay under $2,000.

you CAN find a reliable, professional, talented photographer for under $2000 – I did!
I live in Pittsburgh, otherwise I’d give you my photographer’s info. lol
Just don’t let anyone tell you it’s impossible. Expand your research, get names from friends/family/review boards.
I actually found my photographer on this board (vendors) for $1500 and she was awesome for our E pics so I can’t wait to see the wedding pics!

I would recommend craigslist. I stumbled across a few people, some terrible and some good, that offered their prices at a reasonable rate. They’re generally people who are attempting to build their portfolios because theyr’e getting businesses off the ground. And in my experience of emailing craigslist photographers, most of them are willing to provide you the rights to the photos and some offer printing services.

@ceebree: The Oklahoma board is not exactly the most…active place.
I figured that a traveling one might be possible, if anyone had some better “local” recommendations. I’ve been researching photogs for over a year!
Thanks for all your help! I actually got a PM from someone from this thread that I am looking into!
