  • Wedding: September 2008

i’m getting married in albany, and our photographers often travel to NYC for weddings. they are super affordable (we are going with the package just below the top one and it’s under $2000), and they do beautiful work. i’m sure that even with travel they’d be less than NYC area photogs.

check out their website:

we loved their style and attitude, and the fact that we’ll have 2 people shooting on our wedding day. 

if you decide to set up an appointment, tell them nicole and patrick sent you 🙂

I got married in Syracuse and my photographer also does wedding in NYC for the same price (I think).  He is pretty young, so I think his prices are still low.  I’m guessing that most photographers downstate are much more expensive anyway.

Here’s his website.  

http://weddings.forbescreative.com

Last I knew, his prices started at about $2,000 and went up to about $4.000… and his work is FANTASTIC. 

Best of luck to you 🙂

A friend of mine used this fellow and loved him:

I think he said he was incredibly inexpensive (definitely less than $2,00) did exactly what he asked and their photos were pretty good! I think he’s based in Jersey, but I’m sure he’d do New York/West Chester.

  • Wedding: September 2007 - Restaurant in Burlington

a knottie friend of mine used julia newman for her westchester wedding and raved about her.  i think her prices might have gone up a bit since then, but still, at just under $2500 i think she’d be worth it!

another "up and coming" area photographer based in NJ is tony yang.  he photographed mrs. ant’s wedding and took my boudior photos (he calls them "intime").  he is still under 3K (used to be $1,900 but got really popular in the last year partly thanks to weddingbee)! 

also the NY magazine wedding’s on-line is a good resource — it gives an idea of prices for each photogarpher and links to websites: http://nymag.com/weddings/listings/photographers/

hope this helps get you stared on your search.

One of my friends does wedding photography at a reasonable price ($2000).  It’s not as traditional, more arty, but I love his work (wedding and otherwise) – I would have hired him except I’m getting married in Indianapolis!

budgetgirl – no problem… glad I could help!

I am just so happy with our wedding pictures (which I have yet to post on weddingbee because I’m such a slacker) and he was one of the more reasonably priced photographers that I came accross but his eye and talent are top notch.  He is a super nice guy too and very easy to work with.

I read a tip in a budget book one time that recommended contacting the art schools in the area. They could very well have upperclassmen(women) who are looking to build their portfolios. Good luck.

I would say try checking out photos on flickr.com.   There’s a lot of talanted new photographers.   You can approach a particular photographer, check their profile and see where they’re located.  or even put up a post.

My second choice for photographers was Yun Gen Yang (http://www.yangphoto.com/) whose prices start at $1800.  Although we decided to go with someone else, I still love Yun’s work and I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

I posted about flickr, because I figured you could probably find someone who would do a full day shoot for under $1000, just so they could build their portfolio.  But if you looking for right under the $2000 range you can try ryanbrenizer.com.  I’ve had a couple friends use him, he charges $1850, for a full day, and includes a free engagement or trash-the-dress shoot.
