I am new to this engagement thing, and new to this site. My fiancé and I just got engaged a couple weeks ago and are planning on getting married March 30, 2013. We are looking for a very affordable photographer and/or videographer. My brother just got married and his photographer did engagement photos and all day wedding photos for $550. She did a phenomenal job but she’s in Nebraska! I would LOVE to find someone as inexpensive as her who does an equally wonderful job. I know this is very cheap, but that’s whynim asking here, rather than picking some one at random on CraigslIst. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Ask around and see if you can find a photography student or intern. Some of them are quite good, and don’t charge an arm and a leg! Make sure they have lots of pictures in their portfolio to show you before you commit to one. It’s also better if they’ve shot big events and weddings or engagements before. Ask LOTS of questions!

If you have a nice/unusual venue, a photographer may be willing to comp the cost of shooting/digital negatives and then you just cover the cost of lodging and airfare because they want to add to their portfolio. I would suggest putting out an ad in the WeddingBee Classifieds as other bees have had good luck with that.
