I found my photographer through http://www.wpja.com/

I loved that the site had their prices right up front and I could just look at the ones that were in my price range.

Hi, 

Along with planning my own wedding, I’m a photography student and expanding my photo business. I approach weddings with a photojournalistic style and this shows in my photography. My rates are very affordable (under $500). If you’re interested, please visit my website (listed below) or send me a message. Good luck with all your planning 🙂

Thanks,

Liv

I’m not familiar with your area but the way I got an amazing photographer was to only pay for the digital package. 

She shot my wedding but I am not paying for all the books, prints, thank you cards, etc.  Instead I can focus on my actual photos and decide what to do about the rest after the fact.

Call Ken Blaze @ http://www.thestoryoftheday.com/

You will love him. He is our photographer and he did our e-pics. He is also a photojournalist too. We were definitely looking for that style. He is also a former wpja award winner. He has a facebook page too.

AbbyDabbyDoodleBug that is how I found him. LOL

Happy Sunday Wedding Bee! I am currently reseaching the same issue in the Cleveland area. I am meeting with two “up and coming” photographers next week and will definately update once I have met with them. But one of the girls is Anna Zajac and her packages are $1300 (10 hours and an album). Here’s her website.

I’ll let you know what happens when I meet with her. ~Sarah~

I really like Claire De Lune Photography, they do videography too.  I first saw their work at Today’s Bride show at the IX center a couple of weeks ago… plus they are located in my hometown… Mentor too!

I’m using Jeff Schaffer Photography: http://www.jeffschafferphoto.com/

He is not the “trendy” photographer but he has been shooting weddings for over 20 years and really knows his stuff. When we were doing our search, he came up as BY FAR the most affordable photographer with the most experience. He also has videography which was must cheaper than anyone else we spoke to. We were looking for experience rather than who would be the most trendy – pictures last a lifetime and we didn’t want to be caught up in the latest wedding trends only.
