Well, I would not skimp on the photographer, since those will be the only lasting memories of the day. Flowers wilt and die, and if you are spending $30K on a reception site, then maybe your budget can expand?
Point blank - you might be able to get what you want for under $3000 if you dont include an album. My package was 7 hours, hi res cd, rights to photos, an engagement session and an assistant, and it was $2500. No album, I am planning on doing it myself on MyPublisher (thanks pinkkittie for the idea).
My photographer moved to DC, Michelle Caucutt, but she is taking limited engagements up here I think.
Albums from a photographer cost $1000-1500. You want them do to do an awesome job and give you all that, plus 10 hours of work. I would pony up the price, or forgo the album.
Quality costs money.
[QUOTE]I REALLY don't want to spend more than $3,000 on a photographer, but I want someone who will do an amazing job, an album, a hi-res cd, AND at least 10 hours coverage at this prices. Does ANYONE know any photographers that will do this?? EVERY site I have looked at start at 3-4k for a basic package and I can't imagine paying this. My reception site alone is $30,000. Please, someone help me! I am not getting married until September 2010, so I do have time! I would highly appreciate, THANK YOU! P.S. I am getting married in the Newton/Wellesley area.
