Wedding photographer rec

Looking for a wedding photographer in the area. Anybody got any recommendations, both good and bad so I know who I should talk to and who I shouldn't?

Thanks!

Timothy Whaley and Associates are doing my wedding in October. Kind of expensive, but they were rated #1 on www.theknot.com and photos are something I don't mind spending money on as they will last forever.

I used a photgrapher out of Bristol, WI for my wedding up in Lake Geneva. This guy is awesome, but don't now if he would come all the way down to Brookfield. He is always busy, hard to get, but unbelieveable job and great value for the money.

Something to remember, spend money on a photogapher, it should be one of your bigger costs. You only get one chance to have photos, its not like you'd do the wedding over if a picture doesn't turn out good. If you talk to him and he would work I've got some of his work to show you sometime if interested.

www.carolinecookphotography.com is a lifestyle photographer (she doesn't do 'portraits' or 'canned' shots) so she often acts as a 2nd shooter to the primary photographer. This is a cool option if you've got some 'characters' in your family or among your friends. She also does children's photos (the bulk of her work)

Tell her Patrick sent you.
