Any Vendor referrals for NYC Photographer and DJ?
Posted: Feb 12, 2009 10:24 PM

Hello,

I am getting married this summer and was wondering if anyone could provide any good referrals or recommendations on vendors, such as photography, DJ, cake.

We are having a very small wedding in NYC.... about 40 guests, so our budget over all is pretty small.

We are looking to have a good photographer for about $1500 for 9 hours (ceremony + reception). Not sure how realistic that is, being most photographers are asking for over $4k. But being that our wedding is so small, we have a small budget for photography.

For DJ.... I'm not even too sure what the price range is for that. Someone quoted me $1700 for 5 hours, which also seems a bit pricey.

Anyways... any suggestions, recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi I just posted in another forum for the photographer I'm going to use, he's based out of NJ (though he travels all over, my wedding's in Chicago). I actually got a recommendation for him through a posting by another bride. My FH and I just spoke with them on the phone yesterday- super nice people and do amazing work. Also, I told them that Suzy Coppola recommended me to them & they gave me 10% off for having been referred by a client.

here's the site: www.AshFotos.com

I would definitely get in touch with them.

I haven't booked a DJ yet (and I think we are going to go local on that- since we are in Chicago).

good luck! If I hear of a DJ in your area I'll be sure to post that!

Hello -

I used Sal-Mar Studios in Brooklyn for photography. I am not sure if they fit your budget, but they are definitely worth a look, since they have a lot of different packages. I was thrilled with my photos. They have been in business for over 35 years, so they must be doing somethign right.

My DJ was Classie Sounds Entertainment. For a DJ and MC was $1500 for 5 hours. They do an amazing job. I know it seems high, but they were worth every penny. In fact, my company is now using them for our corporate events, since my boss was so impressed with the job they did.

If you want more information/details, feel free to send me a PM.

 

Don't make me go Brooklyn on you. I have brass knuckles and I know how to use them.

Hello,
I do't know if you are still looking for photographer for your wedding, but my husband is a photographer and he takes beautiful, insightful, reportage-style photos (he's also a reporter, so he adds that "fly on the wall" approach to a wedding - no stress, no pressure). He's cheap (totally within your price range), solid and his photos are stellar. Here are some links to his work:

If you are interested, you can contact me on priv, or go to caryconover.com, there's his email info there.
All the best!
