Hi LA and OC brides! I know this is the most asked about question in the area, but i need new names of photographers! I went thru ALL of the photographers that were mentioned in previous posts and they were either over the $3500 budget i’m restrained to or they were booked for my day (the only 3 i could afford!) ugh….so can you girls give me some more ideas! pls help!

You might try expanding your search to other areas in the country. Many photographers will travel and would be more than happy to accommodate your budget doing so.
Best of luck in your planning!

1. When is your date?
2. Which are the 3 that were booked already?
3. What are you looking for – i.e. # of hours, prints, albums, hi-res images, engagement session, etc?
We are using Tauran Woo for less than $3K.

date is 9/12/09.
the 3 photogs i can’t even remember their names, i’ve just been emailing those photogs whose style i love and whose in my price range.
looking for about 10-12 hours of cvg and the whole shebang! everything you listed and more! the $3500 i know is just for the day-of cvg so i know i’ll be shelling out a few more g’s for the prints/albums, etc.
Any more suggestions!
btw, i emailed Tauran Woo, & Julia Williams…still trying to figure out how modernphotogs website works!
thanks for the suggestions girls, keep it coming! 🙂

They are my photographers and are fabulous. I also work at the Aquarium of the Pacific as a Catering Manager and we refer them all the time – thats actually how I met them. Get general pricing but keep in mind that they can customize their pricing to what you are looking for. Depending on the package, they include the photo album (different sizes and # of pages available), a cd of all high-res images, engagement session, 2 mini parent albums, etc). Tell them Sarah from the Aquarium referred you!
