Looking for serif with true small caps (web font)

Hello there fellow Typophiles,

I'm looking for advice on a typeface for the body text on a website I'm working on. The website is about wedding photography, so I'm thinking that an elegant (but legible) roman typeface would fit nicely. Though I would really like to use true small caps, something I'm having trouble finding in a web font. Question: Do you know any free or affordable web fonts with true small caps? (that fit my requirements)

I've been looking at Typekit and Typotheque and the best I could come up with is Greta Text or maybe Brioni Text.

Any other recommendations?

There is currently no way to access true small caps in webfonts. Just the latest Firefox beta added this feature:

I would recommend to stick with Typotheque because their backend allows you to convert the selected fonts to small caps, so every browser then can show the true small caps.

Thanks for all the great suggestions :)

I ended up using a typeface I found elsewhere though. The one I got was Caslon from Fontspring. Six weights, including two small caps weights for 20 bucks in total, pretty good deal if you ask me.
