    How can you chose an affordable photographer in Las Vegas?

    I want to hire an affordable photographer for my upcoming wedding in Las Vegas. What are the factors I must consider in order to insure that I'll be getting the best value for my money?

    Thank you.

    Solid portfolio of prior weddings.
    Don't equate 'affordable' with 'cheap'.
    References that you can check up on.
    Know what you want.
    Read and ask questions about the contract.

    Define affordable. I have quite a few friends here in LA that are exceptional wedding photographers that would likely be more than happy to make the simple trip to LV. Also, you are posting in a large format forum. Are you looking for large format photos?

    Nice first post. Maybe you are looking for affordable wedding photographs with a Deardorff? Is that what brought you here? How many photographs of your wedding would you need? 500? 1000? I assume you want color. 8x10 for good quality? Monte Zucker once said his work was affordable ... for those who could afford it.

    If you are looking to discuss wedding photographers from a client's perspective, I suggest the forums on: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/

    If you are looking for the photographers' perspective, there is an active discussion forum on http://photo.net/wedding-photography-forum/ (they will often answer questions from disgruntled customers who think they have been treated unfairly).

    If you are looking for someone to shoot a wedding using 1930s equipment and methods, then you are in the right place here.

    Chances are pretty good that any venue that you chose in Vegas for a wedding also has in house wedding shooters as well. Otherwise, look in the yellow pages and visit studios to see their work.

    Monte Zucker and Clay Blackmore shot my daughter's wedding. But that was quite a few years ago.
    Just before his studio fire and all the negs were destroyed in the fire. We only got proofs!

    How many pro LF photographers are there in LV? Right off hand, a quick search brings up nothing, not for photographers or stores. If you can find even one pro LF photographer, I'd say that's the person you want.

    We exhibit at the WPPI show in Las Vegas most years and there are an awful lot of locals who attend the trade show which traditionally has always been for wedding and portrait photographers. So they must come out of the woodwork.
