Hi!

Does anyone know of an affordable photographer in CT?? Everyone that I’ve contacted is super expensive. Please tell me if you know a photographer with good deals!

Also - thoughts on videography & second photographer for a wedding with around 100 guests. Is this needed?

Thanks!

    It would be helpful to know what your budget is.

    Is video important to you? Photos? Which is more important? You can get a lot of video from your guests without having to pay. A second photographer can really help capture the entire event but it will most likely cost extra. With the right photographer, you could get the best shots just using one photographer. Make sure you look at portfolios and talk with them to ensure your visions match their capabilities and experience.

    I hired john munno!! He is by far the best choice. I was seeing photographer for 3000 to 5000 one was even 7000!! But after getting more than 7 hours + a wedding album + a 16x20 wedding canvas the total was about 1800! Honestly he was the best priced that I have found. He was in the vendor section of this website.

    I was hoping to stay around $2,000-$2,500, but most vendors I’ve contacted are closer to $4,500! I definitely think photos are more important, but everyone I talk to keeps pushing a second photographer & video. I just want to make sure I can have some getting ready photos as well as the other photos. Thanks so much for your input

    Honestly ct is ridiculous in their pricing! I was just hoping for something under 2500 by time I found him on here. I almost started crying when one photographer was quoting at 700 an hour! And 1500 for a 10 page wedding album. I about had a mental breakdown. But john met with us, was so kind, he sat down with me and my fiance for almost 2 hours to discuss our wedding. Call him soon hes booking up fast!

    CT has some crazy pricing!
    I’d check out Michele Iljazi Photography - husband/wife team, they take a lot of amazing pictures and have a quick turnaround.
    As for video, that was important to us and we went with someone in New Jersey. $2,500 for a full 8 hours. I believe there were cheaper packages with less coverage too.

    Try The Pros Wedding. I am using them for both DJ and videography. I would be using them for photography as well, but I found my photographer well before I heard of the pros. If you bundle videography and photography together (and DJ if you dknt have that yet), you can save a couple hundred bucks. They have several packages to choose from with options to add on second photographer. Packages start at a little under $1k and are 8 hours of coverage. You also get your choice of any of their available photographers and can check their work out first

    Not sure if you are looking for a videographer from your post, but we found Cinematic horizon films out of Massachusetts and they seem really great and we got a good deal. Good luck with the photographer search too! Smiley smile

    Hi! I think I’m using GDA WEDDINGS they seem very fairly priced. I also am just going with the usb of my pictures instead of a pack with a bunch printed. I found that was the most cost effective. They offer a package for about 2000
