Hi Weddingbees! So we finally put the deposit down on our venue (soo happy!!) and now we are researching on vendors.. There are so many to choose from that I don’t know where to start. Me and my fiance are trying to be very cautious with our money.. Can anyone recommend a great photographer in the Long Island, NY area that is not more than 3 grand for about 8 hours of coverage that can provide 3 wedding albums.. I am in communication with DreamLife and also Brittany Dembowski. Both reasonable.. Also not sure about good dj’s…

@CuteSalvi: Our DJ is http://www.unforgettabledjs.com/ They have been wonderful to work with and really care about getting to know the client and the client’s taste in music. They travel but I’m not sure how far.
Our photographer does travel and has a variety of packages – not all listed on their web site. They are fabulous, creative and technically superb. http://www.kgmexpressions.com/
Hope that helps. 🙂

If you need a great party rental company for your venue I highly recommend Big Dawg Party Rentals. They have new inventory, amazing service and the best prices.

liweddings.com! They have a forum on there just like the bee, but all brides from LI who really get what it’s like to plan a wedding here! So exciting, congrats! As far as photographers, check out Capture the Moment, Lighthouse Photography and Fade to Black.. those are the ones we’ve seen so far and for what you’re looking for, will probably be in your budget! For DJ, check out After Hours.. Phil is great and they have great prices! HTH!

CuteSalvi: Hello CuteSalvi! I am on the hunt for a good photographer, and I see you were speaking to Dreamlife (a vendor that I am considering). Did you end up going with them for your big day? I would love to know your feedback!

I don’t have my venue yet! But my coworker used an Erica Lyn from http://www.ericalynphotography.com and loved her photos from her wedding. I will most likely reach out to her and I know she works with your budget from what my coworker told me.
