The easiest way to find a good photographer is to ask your co-workers or neighbors.
If you are new to the area,
then relying on people that have been in the area for a while is the best bet.
You can search the internet (www.yahoo.com)
but the reviews that are given aren`t always the best.
I also recommend that you pick 3-4 photographers that you are interested in,
and visit their place of business.
Take note of how busy they are,
and how helpful they are.
You should pick the photographer that shows a legitimate interest in your occassion.
