Not sure if their rates are as low as I remember, but you might want to check out Nataly Lemus and Ana Mae Lam. I know Ana has a $1200 package but it’s inclusive of a lot of things, maybe you could tweak the package a little bit so the cost would be less.

Hi Charm!  My sister got married and used Kristine Ellison http://kellisonphotoart.com/.  She is based in Ventura County, but she will probably travel.  I think her website says her packages start at $1900, but I think she will probably negotiate a bit depending on your budget.

I have not used this photographer but have emailed them and ran across them on Craigslist. They have a unbelievable deal and their website is nice.  I believe they are a husband and wife team.  Maybe you can set up an appointment to get more info, but this is the info they emailed me in July.  Good Luck.


“We have an ongoing promotion also advertised on craigslist for Southern California Weddings for $499, with an engagement session for $699. That is our Silver Package inclusive of a secondary photographer valued at $1400.
However, it is for a limited time only.”

@Charm bracelet: This is the website to our photographer http://photos2bdesired.smugmug.com/ 

Her name is Deserie. She is based in the IE, but I know she travels frequently. We had our engagement pics done by her & they turned out great. She’s grown a lot since then, so I can’t wait to see how our wedding photos turn out 🙂

I’m using Felicia Perry Photography for my wedding and have used her for my engagement photos. She’s really reasonable when it comes to pricing and is a joy to work with and her work is amazing!
