@Glambridexoxo: Pro prices tend to start around the 2K mark, for minimal coverage and digital negatives.  If you want more hours or more items like an E shoot, albums, and prints, cost goes up from there into the 3-5K range (and up).

I would be really careful getting a cheaper photographer, keep in mind what is in their portfolio is their best work and not by any means the average of what they shoot. If you gonna go cheap I would make sure you check out their blog so you get a idea as to what your getting. That being said, I would try craigslist, you  might be able to get a deal on someone who is started out. If you don’t mind using a student I believe seattle has a Art Institute, you might want to contact the photography department. I am a student and our department(Media Arts) also welcomes leads on gigs. Hope this helps.

@Glambridexoxo:  Hi!  Would you mind private messaging me with the photographer that you found?  I’d love to check out his or her photos.  Thanks!

I am getting married next summer and paying $1500 which is more than I wanted but I know the photographer very well and trust he will do a great job!! A photographer myself, I don’t see paying more than $2000 for pictures!  [Post moderated due to self promotion policy]  There are definatley cheaper options out there as long as you see the photographer’s passion and skills.

@lmh1123 I would think someone who is a “photographer” themselves would have more of an understanding the significant cost and time that goes into quality photography and would value it much more.

Yes, there are cheaper photographers out there but their quality, skill set, professionalism and running a legitimate business would not be sustainable in that area with the cost of living in that area.

By The Way you are new to the board – self-promo is not excepted but you are welcome to contribute any other info. Just not watermarked images or links to your website.
