I second Craigslist. You can find a lot of great start-ups there.

I suggest searching craigslist for a photographer. Usually they are reputable photographers on there just having some of those… HIDDEN specials or newer photographers trying to get their business started.

@lindseyl06:  Craigslist is NOT a haven for reputable photographers.  Craigslist should be your last resort for a photographer, when your budget is so low that you have no other choice.  This is presuming that photography is of real importance to you.

@machellelima: Have you checked out the weddingwire.com? They have a ton of photographers in your surrounding area. I don’t know what’s your budget but I am sure you can find one 🙂

Craigslist photographers are your next door neighbours who bought a startup DSLR and a kit lens at Walmart, not the professionals you want for your wedding. However if photography isn’t a priority you might (might) find someone who can produce some ok photos. Look around Facebook (it’s pretty easy to tell the real photographrs from the fauxtographers), in your local paper, Google etc.

Go to one of the colleges near you and ask for the best student in their photography program!  I’ve heard of people doing this to save money and it helps the student get some experience, so you both win!

Have you asked any of the ones you like if they will take payments? I do payments for my wedding couples, I set up a plan for them and I offer a gift registry.

 

 

Buyer beware on Craigslist.
