@carlypaige: There are a few fantastic photogarphers who are based down there, and several photogarphers who fly in regualarly for weddings. I highly doubt you’ll find anyone (local or US based) that will shoot for under $1,000.
You just need to sit down and look at your budget and decide how important the photogarphy is to you. It would be easy for me to tell you that you’re not going to find anyone of quality at that price point, because as a wedding photographer (and a recent bride) I just know from expereince what kind of quality you normally get for that price. That being said, it’s about managing your expectations and what’s most important for you.
If you hire someone for $2,500+ yet don’t see the value in them you’re going to be dissapointed no matter how great your wedding photos look because you’ll regret spending that kind of money. However, if you look at portfolios and consistantly love the work of those who are more expensive and you *can* see the difference in quality – you’ll most likely be dissapoitned if you hire someone cheaper.
My top reccomendations would be :

Elizabeth Medina Photography – http://www.elizabethmedina.com/blog/
Ivan Luckie Photography – http://www.luckiephotography.com/
Hopefully some bees who have gotten married down there can chime in with who they used.
