Hi, all! Newbie here in a bit of a bind; I’d love any and all recommendations.
I’m looking for a photographer for a wedding in Southern California with a photojournalistic, energetic approach. I fell head over heels in love with Matushek Photography (http://matushekphotography.com), but they’re booked on my date, and I’m heartbroken!
They didn’t have any recommendations for other photographers with similar styles, so I’m hoping one of you might know of someone. Our budget is $3K (but we could be pushed to $3500 if convinced), and we’d be willing to fly someone out from another part of the country if need be.
I’ve found a few beautiful photojournalist-type photographers but none with the vibrancy and color we’re looking for. Help me find someone similar!

Fortunately California is full of awesome wedding photographers (they must be drawn to the beautiful light ;)). I have a friend from San Diego who I’ve shot with before, he’s awesome. His site is http://www.chazcruz.com. Not sure what he charges now a days though.. he was named one of Rangefinders top 30 rising stars of wedding photography this year, so he might be a little out of budget 🙁

I hired Courtney Danyelle. She described her style as photojournalistic, and I was happy with her. http://courtneydanyelle.com/#!/Weddings
