What is your budget?  I don’t know what you mean by reasonable.  I think our photographer is very reasonable for the work he does, but he might be out of some people’s budgets.  We are using Yamashiro Studio and we’re really excited to work with him.

However, if you are looking for as low as you can get, I think Jolie Images does a good job for the price they charge.  Most of their packages are under $1000.  The most expensive one is $1500 which includes an album.

@poetiksoul1225:  It would help if you mentioned your budget. I was on a tight budget, but photography was important to me so I made sure it was under $5000. I found an awesome photographer for $3900! Includes 2 photographers, they are a husband and wife team and all images are yours to keep! They are really great…let me know if you need their info:)

our photographer’s packages start at $800 and he is pretty good. He is located in St. Louis which is only 4 hours away from Chicago and he might be willing to drive if you are still looking for a photographer but I see you wedding is this coming Saturday..which happens to be my birthday so you chose a great day!! 

check out their website… we really are happy we found them they are profffesional and very reasonable.

Have you tried Fred Fox, Essence, Edward Fox, Wedding Studio – Schaumburg.  I’ve been looking for cheap photographers too.  Sometimes the bigger studios are cheaper.

I second looking at Jolie Images.  We met with them last week.  We didn’t go with them, as we found another studio that was better suited for us.  However, I said that they are perfect for anyone who is on a tight budget right now.  One of the good things is that you don’t have to purchase an album in the package, which most other places you have to.  If you want to upgrade after the wedding, anytime after the wedding, you can and you just pay the difference in the upgrade and your package price.  I was impressed with their photography (and I’m REALLY picky about photographs!).  I suggest you check them out!
