    Good, affordable color lab on US East Coast?

    Looking for suggestions on good labs (on the US East Coast preferably) that I can send color neg film to for processing. They should be able to handle push processing of neg film, and they shouldn't have crazy prices. (Develop only without prints shouldn't be more than $6; developing with one set of proofs shouldn't be more than about $10. In addition, they need to be a lab who currently offers excellent quality work.

    A lab who processes for wedding photographers is a plus.

    If you are willing to send off to the west coast, Swan Photo Lab does amazing proofs at a great price wich is just around $10. Their color, sharpness and overall quality is really nice. http://www.swanphotolabs.com/swan08/

    Though not located in east coast but you can send your film to Bluemoon camera(http://bluemooncamera.com/services.php) $3 for developing 36exp C-41, and $2.00 extra for pushing.

    I've also got very good results from Clark Color prints: (http://www.clarkcolor.com) 36exp C-41 development AND 4x6 prints for $3.30 (S&H $1.30 per roll, sending is free). They don't do push processing though.

    I too can vouch for dorian.

    I want to second Tim's suggestion. Excellent quality, personal service, and they are one of the few labs still doing optical enlargements on RA-4.
