Hard time finding vendors

Does anyone else have a problem using the vendor reviews here on PW? I live in a small area and it seems like every time I put where i live the only things that come up are for things over three hours away (I live in Pennsylvania everything that comes up is for Lancaster or pittsburgh) Im having a really hard time finding a photographer. Everytime I google photographers in my area peoples facebook pages come up. Maybe  I sound snoty but i feel like a proffesional should have a real web page not just a facebook page.
Does anyone have any other sites other than PW they use for finding vendors especially photographers? Thanks in advance ladies!

I have the same issue. My vendors are over an hour away from my wedding and reception locations. Im not sure how the vendors get listed here but I think it is when someone gives them a review. I too believe a photographer should have a website. Are there any bridal shows coming up near you? Thats a good place to seek out vendors

Have you tried looking on craigslist? there are a lot of photographers listed on there with real websites. Look under services. There probably are a few scammers on there but there are quite a few legit ones too. Have you done a yelp search? Do you know of anyone who has recently got married or engagement pics or just portraits that can recomend someone?
