Hi! I have been “interviewing” local NYC photographers & was wondering if anyone had amazing experiences they could share? I am looking to spend south of 4k, so if you used someone that falls into that category, please share your experiences good & bad.

Our photographer was Yun Gen Yang, I have to say that he was so wonderful and I still keep in contact with him to this day. http://www.yangphoto.com if you want to see our wedding or engagement pictures we’re Tass and Ken 2008
I was also fortunate enough to win a trash the dress shoot with J’Adore Love photography http://www.jadorelove.com and they are such a cute, fun and talented couple. Their studio is in Brooklyn.
PM me if you need more details

- Wedding: May 2010 - The Pierre Hotel
Our wedding isn’t until next year, but we are going with Erica Lyn for our photographer. She is also shooting Miss Gloss’ wedding coming up in the next few weeks! She started in fashion photography and her shots are modern, edgy and reflect that background. She would also be within your pricerange. If you meet her, tell her Serena sent you!
Good luck and keep us posted on your search!

Our wedding is on 9/26 and we are going with Brian Hatton. Our engagement shoot is on 8/24 I will let you know how it goes! Google him…we met with him and we really liked his personality, approach, and his work, and his price was just what you’re looking for.

I hired Lindsay Flanagan to photograph my wedding in October 2008. It was truly one of the best decisions I ever made.First, let’s talk business. For our first meeting, Lindsay was on-time, had her portfolio for me to look through, had a copy of her contract, and a list of pricing options. She was organized, prepared, energetic, patient and personable. I felt at ease, right away. Based on our meeting, I knew she was the right photographer for us. Second, let’s talk pictures. Lindsay takes absolutely gorgeous pictures. She took both our engagement and wedding photos. Working with Lindsay on our engagement photos was a lot of fun. It was a great opportunity to see how she works. She dealt with my camera-phobia and our dog (who participated in the shoot)with humor and ease. The engagement photos are fantastic – she really captured who we are as a couple. Our wedding photos are just so lovely. She perfectly captured the unique feel and mood of all the stages our wedding – getting ready, the ceremony, the bride-groom portraits, and the reception. In addition, she makes everyone and everything look absolutely gorgeous.
In sum, Lindsay is a highly professional, talented, and creative photographer. I recommend her highly.
