How cheap for a photographer? You may be able to find a photogrpahy student or a 2nd shooter who will charge less. Cheap is a relative term so a budget would help.

Also, if it’s not all day, a photog may not charge wedding prices if its just for an hour or 2, so looking at website prices may not be useful, you may have to contact them and ask, or see if they will charge somewhere in between engagement prices and wedding prices.

I’m from the Chicago suburbs and we used steve deku for photography. We got two photographers, full rights to all digital edited pictures, and 5 hours of shooting for $350. An additional $75 an hour beyond that. 

Both photographers were a joy to work with, and made both of us feel extremely comfortable. He was the cheapest I found and I absolutely love all my pictures. You should check him out.
