There are some Portland Photographers that will travel that will most likely work with your buget.  I have worked with Smatt Photography a few times and they do great work.  I’m not totally sure on their prices but I know they do a lot of traveling for weddings.

I loved my photographer — Debra Gerth


She was $275 per hour + $300 for a DVD of all of the photos. Our wedding was in Seattle, so I’m not sure if she would charge a travel fee for Tacoma or not. She was fantastic — I love our photos and she was so great to work with, really friendly and easy going. I actually got comments back from guests about how much they liked her.

Good luck!

Ask Mrs. Cherry Pie.  She shot my rehearsal dinner pictures and they are amazing.

Karen shot a wedding we attended this weekend, and her prices seem very reasonable.  Not sure if she will charge for traveling to Tacoma, though.

I don’t know if you ended up going with cherry pie or not, but I do have another recommendation.  I have a friend in the Chehalis area who started up his business about a year ago.  Unfortunately, I can’t direct you to his site, because he recently took it down to work on it.  However, I do have myspace and twitter links

Not sure if you found what you needed yet but…

I had a strict budget and specific expectations for our photographer too – I put an ad on Craigslist and had DOZENS of people write me back! Post what your looking for in a photog, your price range, and wedding date and let the bids come in! (I posted my ad in “Gigs”) I found a wonderful gal who bargained with me just because she knew there was probably plenty of competition slamming my inbox. It worked out great! I do enough web searching for all my wedding planning, searching for a photographer wasn’t something I wanted to do! So I let them come to me! Good Luck!

I booked Stacy Jacobsen for my wedding in May – she is down in Edgewood (east of Tacoma)




I really love her work and her price is more than reasonable.


check her out 😀

She is an acquaintance of mine who just moved to Seattle and is building her photography business up there. I haven’t used her personally, but have seen some of her work.

Check out Angela & Evan Photography, http://www.aeimagery.com. They’re fantastic, and well priced. We just had our engagement shots done with them on Sunday and they are a lot of fun (a newly wed couple too!)
