I don’t remember if I looked at them or not.  But I can recommend a GREAT photographer!!! Can’t recommend him enough.   Check mine out.

He’s great and might still be open for that time but I know he’s been booking up for next year as early as a month or so ago this year.  Good Luck!

Search the forums for DC photography- there are tons, and I remember commenting on one the other day.

You can also look into Richmond, VA photographers.  Almost all of the ones I looked at traveled the 2 hrs to shoot in DC.

Contact Raye from Gillette Portrait Arts. She is fantastic and has some flexibility in pricing. I think it’s much smarter to work directly with a photographer rather than go through a company like Bella. Companies like Bella structure their contracts in order to protect themselves if the photographer flakes or does a poor job, leaving you SOL. If you work directly with a photographer, you have more control and the photographer has more incentive to make you happy.

Out of curiousity, what is the attraction to Bella?  Is it just price?

You should check out Michelle Chu – she’s a Richmond based photographer whose work has a lot of personality, she’s one of my and FI’s options and her first package starts at $1800 🙂
