    Looking for Photographer -- Los Alamos

    Alright - so this is an odd place to be looking, but I know quite a few are from the LANL area or at least know the area.

    My finace and I are getting married at the end of April (next month) at the Pajarito ski lodge in LA. We're still looking for a photographer for the wedding.

    Anyone know someone or shoot themselves?

    Just trying to find good people

    This guy is really good and went to high school with my wife:
    Michael P. Young: Inspired Photography for the Inspiring Senior

    I'm not 100% sure he does weddings but it would be worth asking.

    I just got married in October at the top of Aspen. We used: http://www.facebook.com/HenrikSandinPhotography and I think he did a great job. I can't seem to find his actual website right now though

    Hah hah. Everyone's a photographer! Or everyone at least knows a photographer!

    Having been a professional photographer for more than 20 years now, here's a few things to keep in mind when looking for a wedding photographer.

    Hire a wedding photographer. There are lots of photographers out there who "would love to shoot weddings," but the results can be disastrous. Experienced wedding photographers know their craft and they'll probably have a lot better ideas about what it is they should/need to shoot. That way it won't fall on you, and you won't have to spend your big day directing the photographer's actions.

    Don't "do it on the cheap." Good wedding photographers get paid good money. They are worth every penny. Unless you're planning on getting married a several times, it's best not to have to worry about memorializing the big day the second time around just because you decided to save a few bucks.

    Realize that you will pay for the photographer's time, AND you will also pay for the prints. That's the way it works.

    Once you pay for the photographer's time, you don't need to purchase every photo he or she shoots. Only purchase the ones you love. If you don't see any that you love, you've been swindled.

    And most important of all: never, ever, ever, ever, ever "hire" a friend to shoot your wedding...

    There are lots of fine wedding photographers in the area. Do your research diligently, interview several, find the one who is the right match in terms of being able to understand and fulfill your expectations, book him or her, step out of the way and let them do their job.

    Best wishes for a happy, lasting marriage.

    Eric Johnson did a great job for my wedding. Not sure if he's still working (since hallmark closed), but his prices were fair and the product was fantastic (Google does have a number for him).

    I wish I had used some of the ones above for my wedding, but we went with Key photography and was unhappy with the results. Lack of professionalism all around resulted in a unhappy bride; I'd steer clear and pick the ones mentioned.

    lulz. You guys are all great -- I've been in contact with quite a few of the options listed -- now we'll have to settle on just picking one. Much better problem to have than trying to find one.

    I owe you guys!!!
