Wedding Planning would have been a lot more difficult without the Internet -- which, thankfully, is packed full with helpful wedding resources.

http://bellapictures.com - After searching the Internet, and going through tons of pages, this seems like the best group of photographers for the value. In the DC area, a lot of photographers are asking for at least $2000 and up for the basic package. Here, they have a package called Simplicity, which is as low as $975 for 4 hours of unlimited photography - including $150 worth of prints and online proofing. The big plus is that they let you buy the negatives immediately - they don't hold them hostage for months.
