For your photography package, did you have to pay extra for digital copies of your photos? If not, what was your base rate and how much did you pay extra for a DVD copy? Or, how much was the entire fee if the DVD came with?

I’m a photographer so I certainly made excellent photography a priority. My package was $5000 plus tax and came with digital negatives that were corrected and head and shoulder posed shots were retouched.

Ours comes with a disc with all decent images taken on it (ie they wouldn’t put any really crap ones on it); they’ve said we should have about 800 images.
However, our package is costing $3750 with albums at an additional $750 each; so $4.5k with an album; a lot of cheaper ones I looked at included fewer images (100-200) and you had to pay extra if you wanted all of them.

Our photographer provides a cd with the images for $500 if the smallest package was chosen ($1200 for 8 hours). However, the larger packages ($2000+) include a cd.

We are paying $1900 for the following:
–2 photographers; Primary & Assistant
–up to 8 hours of photography
–complimentary engagement photos
–some editing in Adobe Light Studio
–CD of approx. 600 images with full rights to unlimited re-prints; (we got 150 images of our enagement shoot)
I am not sure how this compares to others, but it is fairly reasonable for my area and I am really happy with the package and our photographer’s photos.

We get a high res CD with our images that we can print from. It was included in our package, which is about $5700

They selected about 100 images per hour (so about 800ish) and edited and colour corrected them. We got them on a DVD as high res images with a copyright release.

our package includes a DVD of edited versions of all the photos taken

I voted “other.” A DVD was not included with the original price, which only included the cost of seven hours of photography and NOTHING else. We then paid an additional $875 for all of the images on DVDs and the print rights to the images.

I 100% guarantee NO professional photographer will ever give you all original photos… they’ll be the best edited ones at best. We don’t give out originals because really, there’ll be plenty of crappy ones, and that’s bad for business.

@photogestelle: Agreed. That statement pops up a lot though, and I don’t think people realize how gross and essentially useless unedited RAW files look. But to each their own!
