The only photog that I know of in the Virginia area is http://www.shillidayphotography.com/, but I don’t know if she would travel to W. Virginia.  Never know if you don’t ask though.

Well it doesn’t hurt to ask.  Last I heard from her she loves to travel.

I would recommend asking a photography professor to ask his or her favorite students. That way you know you’ll be getting someone who will be responsible AND talented.

You probably won’t have much luck until the Fall when school starts again, but since your wedding isn’t until 10/10 you should be OK.

That’s what I did.  The pros were just way out of our budget unfortunatley and I spoke to one who recommended contacting the schools for a student.  I emailed the photo/art professor and explained my situation.  A student emailed me a few days later and we met with him, looked over some work he’s done(not many weddings, but great pics).  We’re paying $200 for 4 hours and all our proofs.

I think it’s a great idea to ask a student to do it! =)

3000 is a good budget….that would cover our packages and travel costs for sure! hehe

Did you mean $3,000 for photography, or $3,000 for your entire ceremony?

If the latter, you will need to most likely find someone either willing to work building a portfolio, or a student.

That being said, I do have a contact in that area who may be interested and is working on building a wedding portfolio.

Pretty sure she meant $3000 for the entire wedding so can’t spend most of it on the photographer! I think you have a great plan with asking the professors!
