So I’m starting to look for photographers and I could really use some help. I’m from Long Island but I’m thinking about getting an out-of-state photographer. I really want a good one which around here means like 7k (from what I’ve seen). I’m thinking it might be better to just pay for travel so I have more options to choose from.
For any bees who are in the eastern half of the US (think chicago to florida to new england) who was your photographer? Did you like them? What did you spend?
if you want to post one of your photos that would be awesome too!

We used jwag photo and are in the champaign urbana il area. We loved loved our photographer. You can check out his work at jwagphoto.com. we paid 3300 for 2 photographers day of and 3 hour photobooth. I feel like some of the photos look like they belong in a magazine. Our photos are under proofs dakuras/Frisby wedding

My photographer is excellent but they are doing fewer weddings these days, mostly relatives of people whose weddings they’ve already done (like children of parents whose weddings they did back in the 80’s). Otherwise I would absolutely recommend them. You can PM me though if you want me to give you their information anyway.

I’m getting married in NJ and am using Smitten Chickens photography (photographers Sarah Hoppes and Chris Rizzo), based in NYC. They have a flat rate for weddings in the US, as well as a discounted rate for within NYC, I believe – their website used to have a page with all the pricing information, but it seems that they’ve removed it at the moment. I heard about them initially through A Practical Wedding. We’re paying under $4k for 10 hours of photography and two shooters; haven’t sprung for videography, but I think it’d be $1k to add to our photo package and $2k alone.

Our photographer, Zac Wolf, was awesome and he travels all the time! I believe he starts at $3600 for his services. He is based out of boston and also has an awesome photobooth side company if you are interested in that as well.

Absolutely fabuous to work with, quick to reply to emails, our wedding was on a Sunday and the next Tuesday evening we had all our photos in an online album (not retouched yet). They were wonderful at the first look also – we felt as if we were all alone!! They travel, as well.
