Sorry, I’m not your guy.  I’m Canadian and live in Toronto.  Google thinks it’s an 8 hour drive, it would probably work out to more like 12 hours with meals and customs.  There are issues around working in a different country, too.

You’re only an hour from New York.  There are lots of excellent photographers there.  You just have to find the right one for you.

The low end of the market seems to be all about shooting, then burning a DVD, or two.  As photographers get better, usually the cost goes up, but so does the service.  Photos are better and more effort goes into editing and printing.

An engagement session is a good opportunity to get to know your photographer(s) and see what their work is really like.  If time permits, it is worth the effort to validate your choice.  Then, on the big day, you know you don’t have to worry about the photographer.  It also gives you a chance to discuss the flow of your wedding day and plan special shots.
