My fiance and I are currently living in Ann Arbor, MI and we are getting married in Nov. 2012 in Boston, where we will likely be living then.
We are hoping to do our engagement photos in Ann Arbor because we met here and started our lives together here, but I have been having trouble with finding photographers who are willing to do an engagement session only. I really don’t want to have to pay the extra money to have the same photographer fly out to Ann Arbor for our wedding just for the engagement photos. Any suggestions?

Im not sure what to tell you besides keep looking around and doing your homework. I have never heard of someone turning down business… It would be absurd for a photographer to fly out to where you were etc, it will cost you way more money in the long run.

Look for lifestyle and portrait photographers. They will do your engagement pictures and probably do a better job than a wedding photographer anyway. Wedding photographers want to spend their time doing weddings, the eng session is kind of a bonus.

See if you can post a want ad in the art school at Michigan – I’m sure there are some great student photographers that could use some cash, and it would probably be an awesome deal 🙂
