    @eocenia:  I vote yes, it’s worth it. Your wedding clothes plus the gorgeous backdrop of Paris? That’s my ultimate fantasy. Seriously. And having some nice pro photos, especially from a special time like your honeymoon, is worth every cent. So I vote yes!

    I voted yes before reading your post.  I guess if you really dislike wedding photos, you may not think it’s money well-spent.  The only thing I’d think about is how you’ll feel 20 years from now without one single professional photo of you and your husband.  That $550 seems like a lot now, but in the future you may be so grateful for them.

    I would definitely go for it. The photographer’s work looks superb. Also, I don’t know how many shots you will get but $550 really isn’t that much money (about £350) if this includes full editing and the provision of all your pictures on a CD. For sure, you wouldn’t get a wedding photographer worthy of the name that cheaply but you could well end up with some truly fabulous “once in a lifetime” pictures.

    I think that $550 is perfectly reasonable IF it includes digital copies of all of the photos taken.  Just make sure that you don’t have to pay hundreds (or thousands!) more on top of the $550 to get digital copies of the photos.

    @eocenia:  “I do worry that any future child of us would be disappointed by the fact that there’s no photos of us from the wedding”

    You just reminded me of how much I love looking at the photos of my parents’ wedding.  I think this is a very good reason to go ahead with the photoshoot!

    Absolutely 2000% yes with zero doubts or hesitations. You will have amazing photos forever if you have your wedding clothes with you in Paris!  

    The price seems a bit on the high side, but not that much more than doing the same sort of thing in Toronto.
