My FI just got engaged and we are starting the process of planning. Does any one know where we can get a decent photographer without paying an arm or leg for it??. My FI thinks that we can pay less than 1000 but im more realistic and around 1500-2000 would be ok. I just dont want to spend a good chunk of my wedding budget on photos! We are looking for norther VT area for venues.

were looking in the stowe area but depending on price if we can do it or not… otherwise we will be in the waitsfield area or burlington area.

@skipanther: Photography is expensive. If you’re looking for 8+ hours of coverage and a full release for all images, you might not be able to find that for less than 1000 for a professional photographer. I would ask around for local students and other startup photographers looking for experience. If you think of the cost per hour, not only for someone’s time, but the post-processing of the images and the equipment involved, you’ll understand why it’s so expensive, on top fo the fact you’re in a destination-type area in Stowe/Burlington. Just a thought.

We felt the same way about spending a lot of money on photography, even though it is a very important aspect for me. Check out ampersand wedding photography (http://andweddingphoto.com/). Their prices are super reasonable and they’re great! Can’t wait for them to photgraphy our big day.
Good luck with your search! 🙂

@skipanther: OMG I got a great quote form a guy in Vermont and he’s coming over to NH to do our wedding, I’m so excited about him.
check him out. He’s so easy to talk to! And he quoted us less than what you want to spend….:) 🙂 good luck!!

I love TwoHouse Photo’s work, but it starts at 3000, but I know they are a duo of photographers, and they sometimes do weddings individually for less if it’s on a Sunday or off-season. You could ask them, they’re super nice!

- Wedding: September 2013 - The Skinner Barn
I’m using Jonathan Couture Photography who agreed to do it for $1800
I wish that I had paid a little more to have Ampersand Photography do our wedding. We had them do our Engagement Photos and they were excellent http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/our-winter-engagement-photos-pics

Try Erik Kruthoff Photography from MA. They travel. We paid $1500 and had him for the entire day, met with him beforehand, and did an engagement session. Our pictures are absolutely incredible and I couldn’t be any happier!! I highly reccommend seeing if he’s available!

Also Jaclyn Schmitz Photography or Hopskoch Photography. They are a bit newer to the scene so not so expensive.
