So I’ve been talking to a photographer for 1.5 months trying to get a meeting and we had a meeting for tomorrow scheduled. Earlier this week she says one of her other clients wants to change her date to my date…ugh. Now I’m all said and in a state of panic b/c I don’t have a photographer yet. If the photographer would of scheduled a meeting me in december i wouldn’t be in this mess :(. My wedding is in August. Does anyone have any suggestions for photographers in the affordable price range $1500 – $2500. Thanks…I’m going to cry now.

dry your eyes and start calling around!!
did you have a contract or still hadnt made it that far in the process?
look on the bright side – you can find someone who’s not going to keep blowing your meeting off!!

Oh no! Reila, she didn’t work out for you? That’s so not like her! I’m so sorry. I feel a little responsable for recommending her.
I don’t know who to suggest at the moment, but you do have a lot more time than you would think. I’m off to look!

im in OC too…
i did not use this person but there are raves on the knot about her. her website is also amazing. It’s Jonilyn Photography. Supposedly starting at $1400!
Other raves in the OC on the knot in your price range are:
try christine farah…i dont know her prices exactly but she does great work. but i think she starts at 3K
I’m using Michael Norwood..love his work. But he is a bit more than you want to spend.

Try Kristy Klemens. I think she is just starting out. Not sure what her rates are. Her fiance’s videography rates are really affordable.

Hi, I am a wedding photographer but in NC. I belong to a professional wedding photographer forum. If you send me a PM with your contact info and what you expect in your package for the price, the date of the wedding, traditional, PJ style or a mix – I will post a positions wanted thread and find some people who are qualified in your area to match you up with. There are some amazing photographers in your area that I have access to.

is it possible to find a photographer with a ‘no-frills’ package in the los angeles area? i’m looking for someone to shoot for about 6 hours, just our ceremony and reception, to give us all the high-res images on cd/dvd, and perhaps an option to buy an album later…
is this possible for about $1000?
