I’m trying to find a wedding photographer/videographer in the Monterey or San Francisco Bay Area (the wedding will be in Gilroy CA, Sept of 2017). I’ve heard that some of the best places to get advice are from recent brides with the experience fresh in their memory- so I’m reaching out to the Bee community for recommendations.
I’m not quite sure what I like, but I do know that I like vivid color/energy in photos, and while I definitely want lots of candid shots, I also need a photographer who is willing to help guide us into good pictures when the opportunity presents. I’ll be putting a lot of trust in them to guide and step in when needed, obviously without being intrusive. But the fact is that I’m not very good at figuring out visual stuff like pictures, so I need a photographer who’s also not afraid to give direction when warranted.
Our budget is $3,600. I may be able to increase this to $4,000 or so, if I can save money elsewhere on some other budget items.
Any recommandations (or suggestions on who to avoid) would be most appreciated!
