I’m in NYC area this fall and would love to do some photo shoots, but I don’t know how much to ask… I saw some of you talking about the prices for the wedding + engagement session + a lot of stuff, but I’m only interested in the engagement itself.
Also, I’d like to know where do you look for your photographers. Any specific website?
I’d love to meet other photographers to talk about photography!

I would imagine there are blogs for photographers to speak to each other. I paid around $750 for a short shoot and disc of the images.

@C13: I live in Manhattan. I would expect photographers for engagement shoot ONLY to range between $350 – $750 depending on skill, experience, availability, etc. I typically google “NYC” or “New York” + “wedding photographer” or “engagement photographer”. I also tend to like the photojournalistic style more, so I look on places like Moment Junkie, http://www.wpja.com/, for photographers who are in that style. Also, depending on where you plan on getting married, your photographer may be able to come down and do your engagement session for you, which is what I recommend because the e-session is a way for the photog to get to know you. I have a wedding reception in Boston and my Boston photog is coming to NYC to photograph us.
