Photographer - L.A., Pasadena, SGV, OC

Finding a quality, reasonable photographer is so hard!  I've emailed so many I can't keep them straight?  Or if you really like one, they don't respond back!   Frustrating!  Does anyone have a good recommendation in the 2K price range?  Really can't do more than that.  Also, has anyone heard of Felicia Perry in WLA?

I'm using studio castillero.  I paid a little more than what you're budgeting, but I'm getting every add on they offer (e-pics, trash the dress, album, etc).  If you have a strict budget, they might be able to work with you to customize a package.


They're based in San Diego but will come up to LA if you want them to.  LOVE them!

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

I looked at Amber Katrina's blog and website.  Her pictures are beautiful!  How did you find her?  There aren't any reviews on her on PW or any other wedding site.  Do you know what her price range is?  I sent her an email and hope she's in my price range!


Thanks!

I think she's within your price range too. She's amazing! I've seen a lot of reviews about her on theknot.com

Jumo - I found her through a google search when I was looking for Disneyland E-pic ideas.  She did an awesome e-pic session at downtown Disney that I loved.  She's not super expensive, our e-pic session was around $200 including a CD of all the pics.  I know that she runs specials a lot. She's awesome!


I need to go type a review for her...ooops!


EDIT:  Review is done! :D

if you are getting married on a friday or sunday they should be more flexible on their pricing. we used Hoffmann Photographer, since our wedding was in January he was more flexible on the pricing also. send him an e-mail see what he quotes you.

Thanks for all of your suggestions.  After an exhausting search (and great frustrations) we have contracted Felicia Perry for our wedding.  Her work is beautiful, she is so nice and we really felt comfortable with her.   She is within our price range, maybe just a bit more, but so worth it.


 


I do not recommend Nataly Lemus.  I will soon put my review of her on PW.

depending on if you like photojournalistic style-- try Suzanne Mapes: http://www.suzphoto.com/index2.php?v=v1


She's very reasonable for a very talented photographer. She's worked for the OC Register, Long Beach Press Telegram and New York Times! She's also got reviews on PW!

You could try <a href="http://www.doglikehorse.com">Chris Noble Wedding Photographer</a> in Santa Cruz. He travels all over California!


He's our favorite so far, and still in the $2k price range!
