Hello everyone, I’m looking for a photographer for my DC-area wedding in October of next year. I’d like to find a photography package that includes an engagement session and second shooter for less than $3000. Does anyone have suggestions for good, local photographer at that price point?

@Swoon714: i used RubySky photography (based in charlottesville, va i think)
i have their packages list sitting right next to me
their 3k pacakage is 7 hrs photog. w/2 shooters, proof portfolio w/online gallery (250-300 pics), cd of digital negatives (wedding), choice of bridal or day after session & cd of digital negatives for that session
they also have a $2500 package that’s 6 hrs photog w/2 shooters, proof portfolio (200-200 pics), digital negatives cd
not sure how much adding an engagement shoot would cost, but they did a great job at my wedding

@Swoon714: We used Joe Foley. We wanted more journalistic style photography, but also some more traditional shots for our parents. He has several packages and was willing to work with us to fit our budget. He was very responsive throughout the planning process and so easy to work with.

We worked with Molly at Artistic Imagez (http://www.artisticimagez.com) and she was fantastic. An engagement shoot is a standard package inclusion and our price of $2100 included a second shooter for half the time. Ours was a little cheaper than her usual rates because the wedding was in January and we got a winter discount, but on her website she says the packages range from $1700 – $3000.
