    Where do you find amature/semi-good photographers?

    Advertisements
    I am still on the desperate hunt for a photographer to do photos for DH and I... Most of the quotes I am getting at $200-$400 for 1 or 2 hours and pictures on a CD I can print/use. I got one quote for $100 but it was for 1 hour and 10 photos and I just could not justify that price for that amount of pictures (even though the work was great).

    Im at the point where I just want to find someone that is good, even OK and then do most of the editing myself. I just don't know where to find someone to do them since when I google all I am getting is the professionals pages.

    Help? Where else should I look for people?

    A local college's photography progam? My cousin did that for his wedding

    Good luck!
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    Craiglist?

    I found one in OK for when DF and I are there for $75 bucks. 1.5 hrs and a disk of all the photos, some edited.

    I looked through her photography facebook and such first, to see that I liked her pictures.

    A picture paints a thousand words, it's true.
    But it's still not enough for how I feel about you.

    That's a good idea.


    I wish I lived closer, Sam. I'd do them for free because I need the practice. Like PP suggested, I'm sure there are students as a local college that would love the opportunity to practice and just build a portfolio.

    Have you tried craigslist?

    Might sounds silly, but I always see friends of mine from HS and college posting about how they were taking pictuers....maybe see if any of your friends on FB would be willing if you have any friends who like taking pics?

    Thanks lovey! I just took a look at craigslist and sent a few e-mails, but it would be so awesome if you lived closer (not only for pics)!
