I know someone from my high school is living in ATL and doing photography, I think she’s done a couple of weddings but she’s still in photography school. Her name is Lauren Nelson, you’d have to look her up on facebook I think but her photos are beautiful!

Good luck!

I wanted to use this photographer – she is a friend of a friend, and her stuff is great!  She’s also very reasonable & quoted me $2k for a full day w/ 2 photographers & some other perks included (I think the cd is included in that).  Anyway, my parents already signed a contract with someone their friends recommended, but check out her website!  Her pictures are fantastic!

A friend of mine just got married and used this photographer:  http://www.aarondill.com/

His pricing is very reasonable (should be less than 2K) and the pictures of her wedding were amazing!

Here are a few other options:

Climie + Co – Not sure if they are in your budget but I had to give them a little link love since they rock.  🙂  http://www.climie.com

Karen Nickel – she and her husband were our 2nd choice when we hired our photographer.  I love her style & personality and hope to use her for something in the future.  Plus she’s a super fun person to be around!  Her packages started at $1500.  This is the link to her site:  http://www.karennickelphotography.com  And this is a link to another Atlanta blogger I followed who used her recently who has started posting wedding photos and they are great:  http://jessicaralph.blogspot.com/

Jessica Purvis:  Another photographer we interviewed and liked.  I believe her packages started around the $2K range.  http://jessicapurvis.com

This is another photographer that our venue recommended:

http://www.parismountainphotography.com  (def. in your price range, but no clue on photo quality other than website).

We are using Jeff Roffman.  http://www.jeffroffmanphotography.com/

His packages for weddings range from $1,500 to $2,200.  He is really nice and personable.  We already had our engagement pictures session with him and were impressed with the results.

Fiance and I are using a friend of mine from HS and college. He has been doing photojournalism (for college, AP, etc) for a few years and is getting into weddings. He has an amazing style and are so stoked to use him! I definitely think he would fit within your budget.

Check him out – http://www.joshdweiss.com/photoblog/ (he has a wedding section) — feel free to tell him that Anna told you about him. He’s a wonderful person and a fantastic photographer!

My Future Sister-In-Law got married a year ago and used Jenica Johnson http://www.jenicajohnsonphotography.com

She did a GREAT job and her prices are pretty reasonable.  My Future Sister-In-Law didn’t want too many posed pictures and wanted to capture more in the moment pictures.  Jenica did a great job of this!!

Hi!  I went to college with this photographer and he and his wife are now a photography duo!  It’s http://www.blumephotography.com and basic wedding coverage starts at $1,900!  One of my good friends booked them for her wedding and she just got her engagement pictures back and I love them!

We had the same budget, $2,000, and were afraid it would be impossible to find a decent photographer! We were pleasantly surprised…after meeting with 5 photographers in person, and looking at 100s online, we ended up signing with Rick & Jen Falco (http://www.jenandrick.com/Site/home.html), who had photographed a friend’s wedding a few years ago. They’re located up in Canton, but I think that may be one reason why their prices are a little less than others I.T.P. Another great choice, who one of my bridesmaids is using for her own wedding, is D&F Photography in Woodstock (http://www.df-photography.com/).

We are using Jeff Roffman Photography as well.  His photos have that artsy, photojournalistic spin that we really wanted.  We met him when I was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding and he was so nice and unobtrusive — everyone loved him.  He is located in town but travelled to Athens for my friend’s wedding — so he does travel too!  His packages go from $1500 to $2200 and they include a free engagement session!  http://www.jeffroffmanphotography.com
