crys Help!! I need a wedding photographer - any amateur phtogs out there?

Cydewaze and I are getting married on Sunday October 23. We are having a U2/Bicycle themed wedding!

The problem is, we are totally broke, for a variety of reasons and we only have $500 to spend on photography AT MOST. We have been planning on having disposable cameras at the reception tables for the candids, but need an hour or so of professional looking shots of the wedding party and ceremony.

The wedding is going to be near Syracuse NY. Every wedding photog I call wants a minimum of 4 hours work, charges exhorbitant amounts and I just don't need/can't afford it! I don't need studio type shots, I just want some good quality pics here!

Are there any budding photogs out there who want to come to the wedding and make some extra cash (perhaps to spend on U2 related stuff)? Anyone you could recommend? We are getting desperate!!!

Check at your local University art dept. My daughter is a student of Photography here at University of TN and the students are always looking for outside projects to make extra $. Congratulations to you!

The only problem is that I don't live anywhere near there, so I'm not even sure where to look...this trying to book things out of state is so hard! But I will see what I can find, thanks for the suggestion!

Sorry if you misunderstood--is there a school with an art dept near you? There may be a photography student looking for some extra work. See ya!

Damn.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to get time off work for that weekend. We're having a big official review of the entire store, and it's a huge deal (aka, all managers have to be there).

I would really love to do it Jess - especially for you two - plus it'd be a great experience for me (never done any formal type of photography, really), but unfortunately I can't make it out there.

I worked with somebody who does it professionally (very well known), but they'd charge you $2500 minimum + travel expenses.

Isn't there anyone in your family who can hold a digital camera??? You can control the posing yourselves....just a thought; and no, thank you. :sorry:

Oh yes...I will definitely use the digital and get people to take pics if I don't have any other choice in the matter. I'd just rather have someone who really knows what they're doing and has a better quality camera.

See if you can get a family member or friend to lend you a digital SLR. You'll get great quality pics and if they snap away and get hundreds of them, there are bound to be a couple of dozen great ones.

Lots of camera stores also do rentals at fairly reasonable rates - a camera, nice lens and flash should fall well under $500 for a couple days use.

I was a photographer for my paralegal's wedding (there were a few people with cameras). She was very happy with the results.

Instead of trying to get one great photographer, having two or three people with digital cameras may give you the results your looking for.
