We’re having the wedding in less than 4 months and still can’t find a photographer in manhattan that does the job for under $1500! Our wedding will have only 30 guests, start at 4 pm and end at aproximately 11pm. I don’t know if it’s relevant…
Does anyone have any experience with photographers here or suggestions where to look?
I really appreciate your help!

- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
mrs tulip found punam bean on craigslist, and now punam is a superstar. you have to be careful when it comes to hiring someone off craigslist, but you can get lucky and find someone who’s really up and coming.
another alternative is to hire someone who typically second shoots as your photographer. maybe contact some photographers who are just out of your price range, and see if there are any second shooters that might be able to take your wedding on? your wedding is in the off season, so you may get lucky.
hope this helps!

My sister hired Jacob Pritchard, i don’t know his exact rates but i know he is willing to work with you to find a custom package that fits your needs. My sister’s budget was $2,000.

Just an idea..but since you are in NY, why don’t you contact NYU or the Pratt Institute…I am sure there are some photography students who would be wonderful and have lots of fresh ideas, and not charge too much!

try editorial photographers… they could give you more “beauty” type photos rather than typical shots. try http://www.juophoto.com
