Have you thought of posting on the college billboard?  It’s a good way to look for local college students.

Hi, welcome fellow August 2013er!!  You can try posting on Craigslist, I also agree with the college billboard idea.  Or if you can contact a photography professor, they may be willing to send a mass email or announcement out to their students, I believe that’s how a friend who took classes (at COD, if you are in the suburbs) heard about some opportunities.

We got our engagment photos taken in Chicago at the U of C campus and used Sarah Ji http://www.sarah-ji.com/ she is a photo blogger and isn’t a full time photographer, we found her through a friend. Her photos were amazing and well priced, she gave us all the images on a cd too. If you PM me your email address I can send you some photos she took of us.

Can you give me an idea of what your budget is?

Either way, I would contact some art departments at Northwestern, DePaul, U of C, and UIC to see if there are student recommendations.

I got my engagement shots done by a professional company and at a great price because I am was in the same boat as you! My friend recommended the business to me because she knew the owner from when she was in college. Check out Photos And Company . I was soooo happy with my photographs, they were so cute and amazing quality. They also gave me an e-cupon, let me know if you want it. c; (They said it can be shared with friends and family. hehe)

Also, for students I would try maybe posting some adds inside schools near to you. Or try cragistlist, as others have suggested! I hear tht’s a big place to get services done. Maybe also ask around some people, maybe someone you know knows someone that can provide photography services!

I looked at Craigslist for a photographer and found Jeffrey Yi.  He did a great job on our engagement photos.  And it cost $50 and I threw a tip in cause it was so cheap.  He was great and I plan to use him again when we do our tour of Chicago photo shoot.
