Can anyone recommend photographers like Jose Villa, Elizabeth Messina & Erich Mcvey. Preferably that shoot hybrid (open to shooting digital when absolutely needed but primarily film shooters).
I’m aware of how expensive these photographers are.
I’m looking for shooters with a similar aesthetic quality: timeless, organic, dreamy, ethereal.
Anywhere in USA and Europe is ok.
So naming any in their same/similar caliber and any that are up and coming but not able to charge their amounts would be great.

You should look through Magnolia Rouge’s preferred vendor list. I originally wanted to go with a photographer with a dreamy, romantic style and I was able to find many in my area within my budget ($4000-5000).

Idk… there’s a reason they charge what they charge. It’s not just jacked up bc they’re popular. They are also skilled at pressing the button at just the right moment so they get that perfect shot instead of the one right after when you’re blinking. They have the equipment needed to make the photos look good as they are shooting (nice lenses and lighting) and after (editing and stuff). The education and experience needed to make sure they’re using the natural light and surroundings to make every shot perfect. You might not be able to compare apples to apples with someone else. Nevertheless, here are a few of my faves. They’re all NYC based but they have that soft touch like the photogs you mentioned…
