    our photo package is $4000,

    i think the breakdown was $2500 for photog’s time and $1500 for leather bound book.

    our coverage starts when i tell him to get there and ends when i tell him to go home.  i’m estimating about 10 hours.  our ephoto session was included.

    i will get a cd of every single photo taken and have full rights to them.  all photos will be retouched.

    the book will include 100-150 photos and those will all have extra special retouching to make sure everything is perfect.

    We could have gotten a 30 page album for $130, but decided that I would make our album, instead!

    We were in between two photogs so I’ll tell you what they offered:

    One offered a 12×12 24 page album for $1200 and a 10×10 24 page album for $1000. It was not included in their packages and I’m not sure I could have stomached tacking it on as extra. The package from her that we would have chosen also would have been $3800.

    The one we went with offers a 150 picture album as part of a package that is $3800. But I haven’t gotten the receipt yet (we just booked them) so I’m not sure what the breakdown is.

    In DC (where everything is expensive) I paid $3500 for 2 shooters for 9 hours, over 1000 photos with all rights to them, a proof book, engagement shoot, and NO wedding album (would have been an extra $1000). I made my own flushmount album on Bay Photo Lab which cost about $467 for 62 pages, I reviewed it in a post here.

    So basically, you got a really great deal.
