So, long story short, our photogs (who we have known for years and dearly love) went and cancelled on us about 9 months before the wedding. Luckily, no money was exchanged yet so there were no legalish issues, but we had grown pretty emotionally attached to three things:
Them (A quirky, married couple)
Their photos (Definitely very artistic and photojournalistic)
Their homie-hook-up rates
So now we’re back on the hunt, and while we’ve found a few photogs whose styles match, they tend to be quite a bit more than we can afford. We’ve also found ones we can afford but their photos are ‘on’ about 80% of the time (and that’s a risk we’re not comfortable taking). And we’ve found one or two that we love, that are already booked.
Sooooo. While we know how to search for the STYLE of photogs we like, we’re having some trouble finding ones that are actually COUPLES. Any of you Bees happen to know of some?

@AliJosh: Hi there – Welcome to WB I am so sorry they cancelled. You have good time to find someone else and everything in the wedding world does indeed happen for a reason! I am not sure what your price range is. We’re using Sarah Rhoads Photography and truth be told they’re in the pricier range. However, I do have some recommendations….

YES!! I did my bridal portraits with my horse with Josh and Ali from Jaylee Productions. They are engaged and she does bodouir photography as well. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

@jackie-o: I second Jagger! I love everything they do, and I’m sort of biased because they’re going to be shooting our wedding!

Is there a reason you’re stuck on the “couples” thing? You may have more luck finding what you want in terms of quality and price, if you also consider photographers who work with a second shooter who is not a spouse.

@NotYourTypicalBride: ditto! It seems like the OP is limiting herself in a way that isn’t necessary.

Ouch. As a non couple photog, about to marry the least artistic man ever, I can’t help but feel stung that you wouldn’t consider me if I was in your area. Is there a valid reason? I get wanting a second shooter but to limit it to couples only is almost akin to white only or black only. It’s kinda rediculous and you’ll be missing out on some awesome people 🙁

I’m confused by the couples thing too. Why a couple?

have you tried emailing the ones that are a little expensive? it never hurts to ask if they are willing to work with your budget – my photographer is super expensive but i gave him my budget and he said ok – so he ended up giving us a 2k discount – never hurts to ask 🙂

Yes! Ours is: angelaandevan.com. Also, we considered Laura Trotten from blissed.com, who has her hubby be the second shooter.
Also, I heard about John and Joseph, who are a brother team, if that can work too.

Joey Nicole Photography! Husband and wife team- she does most of the “main” shooting but her husband is second shooter and they are amazing.
