Hello everyone! Does anyone have a recommendation of a photographer and/or a DJ in the NYC area? I am searching online for both but it’s so hard to know which companies are good! Maybe you can share who you’ve hired? Our wedding is in NYC 7/8/12. Thanks so much bees!!!

- Wedding: May 2010 - The Pierre Hotel
We had a band, so can’t help with DJs, but our photographer was Erica Lyn, and we loved her! Check out her work in my recaps. Good luck!

I am using a Starry Night DJ – they were recommended to me. My photographer is in NJ – she is called DMDC Photography.

We are using this photographer: http://sunflowersstudios.com/
She’s a little photoshoppy but they said they can tone that down if we want them to. I love the drama in her photos. For our price point, she seemed to capture poignancy the best. Our wedding is in three weeks so I can’t report back yet.

I used elisabeth millay (http://www.elisabethmillayblog.com/) and thought she was wonderful. She does not do a lot of “posed” pictures, but was able to capture great moments. I highly recommend!

I’ve been searching through the vendors database on apracticalwedding.com. They prescreen all their vendors.

I used Corey Torpie Photography. She is AMAZING!!! She does really well with candids… is very easy on the wallet, just got engaged herself (so she is more psyched than ever about weddings) and has no time limit or shot count. She showed up at the salon at 10:00 and didn’t leave until my wedding was over at 10:00pm. She got all of the shots I wanted PLUS more amazing ones (even made the formals look great which are usually so boring!) and I felt like I never even saw her on the day of… she wasn’t in the way or ever blocking anyone’s view of the action.
I highly recommend you check out her website and her PRICES especially. I think she was my favorite wedding purchase!!

I highly recommend Sasha Chou. She is a fashion/ wedding photorapher. My friend used her for the engagement shoot. Friendly and professional. I am not sure about the price though. But I heard it’s very reasonable. She can catch candid moments as well as editorial feel.
I think you can find her blog and facebook page
