Photographer Ideas (on a budget)

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I am looking for a photographer, and fast! I would like to do a trial photo session while I am on my scouting trip at the end of this month. I am looking for a few recommendations in the $350-$450 per hour range. Trying my best to stay within the budget! I understand there are several fantastic photogs that chage much more with a very high minimum and their profiles make it tempting to splurge. But I am resisting! I am looking for the best in my price range...any thoughts??

 

Thanks!

How many hours are you thinking of hiring them for?

I am thinking 4-6 hours on the day of the wedding and a trash the dress the following day.

Have you thought about flying in a photographer? If you are thinking 4-6 hours with the budget you listed above that is $1400-2700. Plus a trash the dress which would be around another $500.

Personally I found an amazing photographer for well within that budget and that includes the cost to fly him in and have him stay for four nights.

Would you consider doing that?

we're considering gilda badillo and her a la carte package (per hour rate, which includes all your shots on cd --not just 100-200 per hour, but ALL of them! -- with the rights to them) is $350 an hour. if you want to PM me, i'll send you the rest of her rates list i just got from her yesterday. she's really been nice so far and answers quickly.

 

(provided you dont have the same wedding date as me, haha) ;-)

I have Tomas Barron booked right now and have a $200 deposit down....he is charging me $300 per hour.

 

I have been second guessing myself though and considering other options...I just got emails from both bradley fraser and gilda today....and it's $350...so it's reasonable!!!

Me too! I am working with Gilda and Bradley and D!no. It seems like they all have good work out there and are very responsive and in my price range. I am undecided on video at this point which seems very expensive. Although D!no will offer photo and video as a package which makes it slightly more reasonable. Bradley seems much more experienced. It is such a tough choice.

I guess I am lucky because I am going to be doing a one hour session on my scouting trip so I have some photos for our engagement announcement, save the dates, website, and most importantly for the BDW forum!
