Consider Margot Duane at www.planetmargot.com. She charges $2,200 for "up to 8 hours of photography" with 300 images on DVD, free reproduction rights, and online ordering for family. I was considering her before I hired my photographer, Matt Kim (www.mattkim.com) who charges $2,100 for 5 hours. TONS of luck to you with your search. Most of the really good Bay Area photogs are going to charge around $3,000 for 8 hours, from what I found.

Check out the vendor reviews and the forums at ProjectWedding.com and weddingbee.com. Make sure you''re set to Bay Area. That''s how I began my search. There are some really valuable referrals at both those sites.

She does like the antique effects, she didn''t do them for our pictures, which is what we preferred. But there might be other options that you might stylistically prefer for sure. She''s fairly flexible, so it''s worth an ask!

I have about 3500.


She took a TON of pictures and even after we weeded out the ones we liked we are still left with about 400 or so... Unfortunately it would take much too long for me to post them all here and I can''t reach you through email or picasa (PS rules). If you contact Elley though I am sure she would be happy to provide an entire wedding "shoot" for you to peruse if you are interested. Just tell her Callie sent you!
