I need some recs on photog in OC or Long Beach that can work with small budget.
What is the normal cost to have a photog
I believe the average minimum cost is around $1500-2000 but that's considered "affordable" in the wedding industry.
How small is your budget? I can recommend a few people for you :)
I know it is not a lot but I only have max $1000, and was hoping to get away for less. It sounds like I am not going to be able to find a decent photog with my budget.
Check your PM!
check out www.natalylemus.com, she was my wedding photog and has packages w/in your budget.
Palos Studios (our booked photographer has reasonable packages). Also, check out my bio, I have a whole list of photographers there that I either met with or just loved their blogs. Some are expensive, but there's affordable ones, too. http://www.palosstudioblog.com
I think these photogs will also work with you: http://www.eight20photography.com/blog/
I second Chica's suggestion but add that she's increasing prices on Jan. 31, 2010 so if you want to save money, contact her before then.
I think you can find a good photographer within your price range. Their prices usually include wedding albums, engagement sessions, CD of all images, and how many hours they will be with you. You could probably ask them how much they would charge for a basic package including, the hours you would need them, and for the rights and CD images of all your pictures.
you could try an hourly wedding photography like carlydaniel.com, should be able to accomodate the budget!
try Sarina Love. She's a young, new up and coming photographer with great style and since she's just starting out, very reasonable (definitely within your budget):
I was going to recommend Sarina as well. I just hired her for our June wedding. she's only got four weddings under her belt, but her composition is beautiful and she's filling up quick for next year.
I highly recommend Chelly Cruz. We used him and got some amazing pictures. If you need his contact information, PM me!
I just posted this in another forum...
Amber Katrina Photography - She did my E Pics. We got married Las Vegas or she would have photographed our wedding, too. She has great prices and packages. She is fun to work with, professional, has a great eye and is very quick getting pictures to you. I know she does a lot of events in Pasadena and she came to Orange County for us. I love her and plan to use her for family photos and all of my other events that I have in the future. Can you tell that I love her? :D
Try momento-studio.com. Joe is awesome! We used him last August.
try Perfect Images by Eddie Almanza =] He's great! him and his wife are a team and they're awesome!! We just took our e-pics with them! So much fun! And VERY affordable! $1000 total for e-pics and ENTIRE wedding day! PM me for more details! =]
