Josie Marton is fantastic!
Chi Pritchard is wonderful childcreations.com
Tillman Branch Photography is amazing! They custom designed a package for us, exactly what you're looking for! We just wanted the rights to the pics, and they did that. Just gave us the cd. I highly recommend them
We had redshutter studio - redshutterstudio.com They were a little more expensive, but so worth it! Wonderful pictures & credit for all the photos. Very lovely couple!
Christa harder. Www.christaharder.com. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Dave Rister acharlestonwedding.com does a great job
Shannon Michele Photograpy is very reasonable and does photojournalistic photography. We are using her in October
I would love to talk with you about your wedding photography. We can work within your budget. Check our galleries and contact me by phone or email if you feel our style is what your looking for. All the best,
Have you tried Richard Bell photography? He does amazing pictures.I brought one up from Atlanta before I knew about him but many I know use them.
Randy Spencer 572-7687 should be in your budget. Also, try Sea Star Arts at 324-7974 or AMy Prikazsky at 861-5254 or Photography by Terry 875-4034. We work with many great photographers each weekend, and I think (hope) that these would be in your budget.
Best of luck,
We used Jim Gund Photography...sounds like what you are looking for!
Yes! Priscilla Thomas http://priscaphotography.com/
There are a lot of Photographers out there, but choosing one will be difficult when budget is the priority... However, IF your date is available and you like our style, I can come up with something right in that range. Please check out my website at www.AboutTheDay.com or give me a call at 800-431-8577. I'd be happy to discuss your plans and options. --Stephen
A lot of the photographers mentioned are great but they are over $1500. I am getting married in November and I talked to most of them and have seen their work.
I was able to find a great photographer who has a very customizable package and is in Charleston - Dana Fletcher http://danafletcher.zenfolio.com/
Most of the better wedding photographers will not give up THE rights to the wedding photos. The rule of thumb....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!However, with the economy as it is, you may still be able to find one to stay within your budget.
We used Project Duo. They're out of ATL, but on of the girl's brothers live in Charleston so they don't charge an extra out of town fee. I end up with really amazing pictures (6 hours and a CD of the high res images) for $1800! Really, really great pictures (And I'm a graphic designer who works with photographers on a regular basis. It was really important for me to have good photos and I was prepaired for it to be my "splurge". I found these guys and ended up not having to splurge on what I really wanted!)
I got married in Charleston two years ago and the guys that did our photos were fantastic. It's Charleston Wedding Company (Paul Cheney) and their style fits what you seem to be looking for. Their phone is 843.475.3896. Our budget was very similar to yours, and they worked with us to stay well within it. Tell Paul that Christian and Catalina recommended them! Good luck.
Tillman Branch worked within our budget, and did 6 hrs with a cd and rights for $1250. We ended up adding a second photog and 2 more hrs, but even that only came to $1800. Definitely contact them. Their website has packages, but I contacted them directly, because none of them fit what I was looking for. Tell them the Czartosieski's sent you!
We used Chi with Chi Photography out of Charleston and she worked well with our budget. We got all photo's on a disc and photo rights as well for 1250.00. I couldn't have been happier with the way all of my pictures turned out. Ours was a last minute wedding and she was great to work with on such short notice. Her website is www.ChildCreations.com. Good Luck!!!
Give Crystal Lee Photography a call. Crystal photographed my wedding and is absolutely fabulous!!! She is no doubt the best and so affordable. We had her and her assistant, Chris, for unlimited coverage the day of the wedding and were given a disc of all the photos and a release giving us all rights to the photos. She also did a bridal session for me earlier that day at a different location. We drug her and Chris around all day and she was so sweet and fun, they had me laughing all day, and the photos are fantastic!!! Check her out... www.crystalleephotography.com
