I’m pretty sure we paid right around $3000 for ours. We got an engagement shoot, 8 hours on our wedding day, & a free future shoot. I’d say for a good photographer that’s a very good price.

There’s this AMAZING photographer here where I live, but he’s $10,000!! Can you believe that?! I’d say THAT’S way too much!!

We paid around 4 for an additional shoot (engagement, TTD, bridal), 8 hours of coverage, two shooters, $200 worth of free pictures, high resolution pictures from both shoots, and an album with all the pictures from the wedding.  Honestly, I think he is an amazing photographer and I love our pictures!

We are paying$800 for 6 hours and a free engagement shoot. We will get a disk with all of our edited pictures and own the rights to print wherever we choose. Our photographer is also taking pictures form our engagement shoot and making a guest book for us that is really cute.

You could probably make an album for a lot less on your own with one of the websites that do that sort of thing.  It’s probably not worth an additional $1,000 in the pricetag.

I live in Las Vegas and photographers here run about 2500 and up. I hired my photographer from Utah and paid her traveling fees. For 1200 we get all day coverage, $600 print credit, cd with all the images, and her online gallery. I think we got a ridiculous deal because she’s from Utah, if she were in Las Vegas I think she’d probably be double.

It totally varies from place to place of course. We payed $3100 for an up-and-comer (she had 6 weddings under her belt when we booked her). $5K is my threshhold… I can’t imagine paying any more than that, ever. I’d be happy to pay around $4K is for 2 shooters and all day coverage plus engagement shoot and full access to a DVD of all the pics after (so we don’t have to print thru the photog).

The photographer that I love and hope to go with is $1500 for 8 hours. No album is included but that is b/c I can do it myself without paying an arm and a leg! Hope that helps!

Im looking outside of Atlanta GA and found some photographers for $1000-1500 and then a bunch in the $2-3000 range. But Im using The Pros and they are $895 for 8 hours of coverage and a disc with all high res images and the rights to the images.
