If you provided us with an example website or two from a photographer that you really like we might be able to help better!

We absolutely loved our photographers Sarah Lockhart and Tim Ryon. They are a husband and wife team who are incredibly talentand and also really wonderful people. We enjoyed every meeting with them. They are based in LA. Here’s their website, please feel free to pm me with any questions. http://www.ryonlockhart.com/

@CelticBeachBride:  I went to a bridal show and I saw a few albums from Lindsey Cahill, I really, really liked her stuff.

I was ready to book her when we planned the big wedding in CA, but we decided to elope to Paris and I found a local photographer for our ceremony.  I’m still planning on having a photo session with her after we get back from Europe so I can get some nice photos by the beach.

I’m going to guess that for that budget you’re not going to get a talented, technically proficient photographer willing to give you everything on your wish list in your area. I hope not but my gut says no.

I’m having the same issues and initially had that budget as well. Unfortunately for us, a proficient photog in this area is closer to 5k.


My personal favorites are the Youngrens, Jonathan Young, and callaway gable..super out of our budget but callaway is probably my DREAM photographer! 

We’re still looking ourselves

Oh! Have you checked out Brandon Wong? His shots tend to be more artistic and interesting compositions

My friends are part of Say Yes Productions http://www.syproductions.com. Typically they do videography but they shot our engagment photos too and will do others too. They are great and are in the LA/OC area. Our friend’s name is Jessie

You might try:

Cameron Leung Photography, we used them and they were great.  Their prices may be a bit above what you’re looking for, but our package was different.  (10 hours on wedding day, engagement pics, all photos on a hard drive, website w/ our pics, 2 photographers no “assistant”, no album)

Sun & Sparrow offered some pretty good packages at very reasonable prices for their level of skill and albums.  Probably not exactly the style you specified, but might be worth a look if the album is a priority.  For the price, the photography was pretty good, but their albums REALLY shined. I thought they undercharged for the albums for the amount of work and creativity that went into them.  We didn’t go with them because we had set a priority on great raw images and weren’t planning to get an album.

I agree with an above poster that you will be hard pressed to find a great photographer at that price range in this area.  You may want to check Craigslist for some of those photographers-in-training too, but that does not come without risk (I’ve heard of some real win and some absolute disasters)
