I absolutely love Trista Lerit’s work.  Her work is very similar to Stephanie Williams’ work so I think you’ll like it.  I exchanged a few emails with her in November, but sadly her prices are out of my range.  Her 6 hour package is right in your range though!

I highly recommend Phoebe Joy photgraphy. http://phoebejoyphotography.com/

She is friendly, has an awesome eye, and just really stylized, which probably comes from her background in graphic design and art.

Re: Elizabeth Messina and Jose Villa totally fit your aesthetic but are out of your budget.

Check out Denise Bovee { website + blog }. Her wedding packages start at $3500. We used her for an after wedding shoot (I wanted to wear my dress one more time, yo). Not only was she a sweetheart but our pictures came out beautifully. My husband can be a grump when it comes to taking pictures but she managed to win him over too. I also love that dreamy look that borders on vintage but not quite. Sigh. She’s definitely within that aesthetic.

For our wedding we used Sarah K. Chen who has a sort of more streamline-dreamlike touch. However, she’s out of your price range (her lowest package for 2010 is $4500).

If you want to see some pictures from our shoot with Denise just holler. The CD is at home but I’ll work on sending some to you tonight.

P.S. Stephanie Williams should seriously shoot for Anthropologie’s catalogs. I follow her blog too.

I contacted Denise Bovee but she waited too long to respond back after I had emailed/called her again.  Early bird catches the worm, I guess!

pinkpamulan – Denise did have some moments were her correspondence was bit slower than what I was used to but it wasn’t egregious either.

LACitizen – Another tip, if you still can’t find a photographer that fits the bill check with Stephanie to see if has any recs. You never know.

She has packages in your price range, so I’d check her out!
