My photographers, Jennifer/Brooks Photography, start at $1250 for all day.  I’ve only met Jennifer, but she was awesome and we are very excited to be using them!

I’m using Michele Lee of Square Root of Red Photography – we just had our engagement photos done and they were great! She’s just starting out, so is pretty affordable.

I know someone in Hampton Roads that most likely would go to DC. I don’t know how much he charges, but here’s his site: http://www.lebeauimages.com

I’m seconding @deux.etoiles.  Jennifer/Brooks is doing my wedding too!  I have been floored by everything they’ve posted since I’ve met them, but it’s something more, too.  These girls have become friends–they’re SO excited to hear about every wedding detail, have been there for every question I have, and come to drink wine in my backyard.  From what I’ve heard, they’re like this with many brides–they see their part of the wedding as capturing you at your "most you," and they have to know you to do that.  And did I mention AMAZING photos?

Plus, at packages starting at $1250 for TWO highly qualified photographers, an unlimited day of shoot, and 250 professional quality photos, I just don’t think you can beat it.

I definitely recommend the photographer I used. I was looking for digital photos as well.

They have a package just for that and its about $1500. However, his albums are great! The photo package includes a dvd slideshow that they put together with music and all.

He was also picked one of the top in the area in the Knot magazine this past year. His name is Don Harper from Edge photogoraphy. http://www.theedgephotography.com/

@ deux.etoiles and UrbanLeo – your recommendation (and the price offered) sounds amazing, but when I go to the photographer’s site, it shows her wedding packages starting at $2550 – twice what you say you paid.  have her prices doubled in just a few months?

My photographer is Dave Crockett. He’s based in Baltimore but works in DC and Virginia too, and his prices are right in your range. We just had our engagement photos taken and they’re great! His web site is http://www.photogig.com.

@EmilyM2010 – I noticed that as well…that does seem like a pretty major price hike in a short time..

@pennyDreadful – at the advice of Kimee (above), I contacted Laura Scheidt with Exclamation Photography.  She was a bit more expensive than Kimee noted ($1800ish), but included so much more for that amount than I’d seen.  My Fiance and I met with her and she was so nice.  The photos on her site are also beautiful.  We ended up booking her within a week!  Just my $.02 🙂  Good luck with your search!

  • Wedding: May 2010 - Morningside Inn

we’re getting married in frederick and chose a frederick photog, but he has traveled to dc/va as well.  he’s rather new to the business (he doesn’t update his website a lot) but he has an incredibly artistic eye is amazingly nice and available.  he has amazing photos that he has done since not on his website, and he is willing and able to do photo journalistic style or traditional.  we got his  most expensive package of 2 photogs all day for 2500, but has far less packages.  check him out!  bscottphoto.com

@EmilyM2010- Carissa Gallo! She shot my wedding and I was thrilled, she’s a fairly new Photographer so I’m sure she would give you a reasonable price. Her website is carissagallo.com, if you want I can PM you the link to my wedding to check out her style a little more.

re:srismi, my sister got married October 2009 and she used Rachel.  Rachel was EXCELLENT.  She was professional and FUN.

She worked by herself and my sister received over 1,600 pictures! 

I was the maid on honor and had such a great time working with her as part of the bridal party that I will be hiring her for my wedding now that I am engaged.

I really recommend Rachel Naft!

Meganrose – yes, I realized I never posted about Rachel after the wedding – she was AMAZING!  The best part was that she posted our photos less than 3 weeks after the wedding.  The day of, she was super-professional and great to work with.  By far, she was the best vendor we picked.
