I’m not sure where you are located, but where I live (for PA, NY and NJ anyway) that price is completely reasonable for a decent photog. Whether that particular photog is decent or not, I can’t say without seeing the work, and then if I did I wouldn’t be able to comment. Use your judgement. If you love their images and they are giving you a deal, I would take it.

That’s reasonable! Before I find mine (for $750…so excited!) the lowest I found was $1200 for 4 hours, 1 photo, no engagement session. You’re definitely getting a deal!

That is a great deal…however, you might want more t han 4 hours of coverage.  Usually with ceremony, cocktail hour and reception you’re looking at least 6 hours.  If you want getting ready shots, you’re up to about 8.

Just something to think about.  Don’t get distracted by what may seem to be a great deal at the expense of not having your whole wedding day covered.

If you like this photographer’s work, I’d ask them how much more it would be for more time. 🙂

I think it’s regional.  Most of the photogs I looked at were in the $2000 and above range for what I want (all day, 2 photogs, rights release, at least 2 locations).  Many of them offered lots of prints in addition to the service for that price, but I really don’t need the prints.

I ended up finding an awesome photog for $1500 that will do everything I asked for, plus a 50 image coffee table book.  AWESOME!!!!!

I don’t know where you are located but I think it is ok. I am paying 1300 for 6 hours of coverage and 2 photographers.

@Malaika, are you having any dancing or anything like that, or are you and the family just going out to dinner after the ceremony?  If you’re just doing dinner afterwards and no formal reception with dancing, cake cutting, etc., then I think you should be fine with four hours 🙂
