gubidal092 :  When is your wedding? I am getting married in Middleburg next September and we are paying a fortune for our photographer so I understand the budget concerns. You’re not gonna find many photographers in this area for $1k unfortunately. I do photography on the side and I am not a certified professional but I have done some of my friends’ engagement pics as well as baby pics and I would be happy to photograph your wedding for a pretty small cost. I’d be happy to privde you with some super high quality shots, maybe a select few you’re in love with (as it sounds this is what you’re looking for) for a much lower price. Just let me know and we can have a conversation 😉

gubidal092 :  You might want to try craisgslist. At that price range you’ll definitely be getting an amature photographer or student.

gubidal092 :  Try submitting a request on We’re wedding photographers and use Thumbtack to fill in our calendars with smaller budget shoots when we have dates that we’re unable to fill at our normal rates. It’s a great site and doesn’t cost you a thing, we only pay as professionals to send our quotes. It’s the best site out there for finding vendors for smaller budget weddings!

For under $1000, you’re unlikely to find someone with good skills in the DC area. You’re going to find someone non-professional, just starting out with little experience, or a student for that price. With photos…you get what you pay for.

My bestie got married this past May in Bethesda and used Devon Rowland. She was so nice to work with and the pictures are beautiful. Not sure what her rates are, but I think she was reasonable. Google her – she has a facebook and instagram account so you can see her work.

Maria Grace Photography is amazing! Maria is also the most comforting photographer ever, you don’t even realize she’s around. Was very affordable for us. Not sure of other pricing though, but she’s prompt on email responses.
