    Hi there, ladies!

    So it's time to get some engagement pics taken, and I am totally lost. I'm currently living in New York City, and I have been searching and searching websites for the past week. I'm so afraid that i'll choose someone because their website looks good, and not know if the photographer is actually good. So I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for those of you who live in the area or know of someone. I will take any and all names I can get :)

    Thanks!

      I was researching this exact thing a couple of weeks ago...I found one photographer that I thought looked REALLY good, but his prices were a bit too high for me. Here's his website:

      Brian Dorsey Studios

      The one we ended up going with is this guy. I think he'll still do a really good job, and he is going to work with us for 2.5 hours for half of the price of the first guy (who only does one hour).

      We didn't look into it all that deeply because we weren't planning on doing e-pics, but decided that since we were going to NYC next weekend anyway, it might be fun to try it out and see if anything good comes out as a result. Plus it's practice for the big day, since neither of us have really had pics taken before. But if you really want your pics to be amazing and you want to be SURE they're amazing, you're probably willing to pay more than I am!

      Also note that we were focusing on photographers that do artistic/unique shots and not your typical posed ones, so if that's your thing you might want to check out some other people.

      Hope that helped a little?

        I haven't had mine taken but this photographer did my cousin's wedding and she is awesome. Not sure what her prices are as far as engagement pics but whatever it is, its worth it. She's so much fun and her pics are amazing. Her name is Julia Newman and her website is Julia Newman Photography.

          Thank you so much, Heather! I absolutely love Brian Dorsey, so I'm waiting to hear back about prices. Hopefully my eyes won't pop out when I get the quote....

            No problem! I just got his prices 2 weeks ago or so, so if you want me to send you the info, just PM with your email and I can forward it on!
