Hmm. It seems like for someone as important as your photographer, you’d want to get him a confirmed seat. For that combined cost, I’d be really surprised if you couldn’t find a comparable person in your area. $2300 for the Italian photographer plus another $1800 adds quite a bit to your budget, so if you’re willing to spend it for this person, why not just get somebody in your area for $4k?

I agree with amysue — if you’re going to be paying $1800 for travel in addition to $2300 for his work, I think you might want to reconsider.  His work is very beautiful, but I have certainly seen some comparable photos in the US and I think you need to look a lot more in order to be able to make a more informed decision.  Even if you find someone outside of Atlanta, their travel expenses are sure to be MUCH less expensive. 

Photography is one thing I am willing to splurge on, so I’m biased, but I think you should keep looking in and around Atlanta, and keep working your way out from there until you find someone.  It’s worth even looking at photogs outside of your budget, because you never know who is willing to bargain and/or customize a package to better suit your budget.  If you really can’t find anyone whose price and work would be comparable, then go with the Italian guy!  

PS- when is your wedding? Maybe some other bees in the hive will be able to point you in the direction of someone in your budget/area who may be available on your date.
