What is the cost of all this? It sounds pretty good to me!

Is the disk of photos high-resolution or low-resolution?  Get specific on that if you think you might ever want to print out photos!  Low res photos often won’t look good when enlarged to sizes bigger then 4×6.

Other then that one question, that sounds like a great package!  🙂

To me it sounds fabulous that you got both the photographer AND the videographer included. If you’re happy with the images they produce, even better!

The only thing I might frown upon if it were me is the in studio engagement session. That seems a little less natural than shooting around town, but honestly, I’m sure they will do a great job. If the engagement session is important to you, I would ask about that.

Not to be a negative Nellie BUT the one time I had a friend use one of those all inclusive places for her wedding, her stuff didn’t come out very well. I think they held the copyright to be pictures for A YEAR so she couldn’t print anything without their logo stamped all over the pictures. Also, her videos weren’t really good. I’m just saying that as long as you’ve done your due diligence and seen their work and asked your questions, you are good to go. Like the pp, I am not enamored with the ‘in studio’ engagement shoot. I prefer the outdoors. Other than that, I think you are good to go. I would wait for the other photographer bees to chime in too. They always give great advice!!!

Ask if the disk will be high res images?  Also ask if the images that go into your album will be retouched.  Did you see a sample album?  Did you like it?  Did it look high quality?

Also, ask if the portraits they are giving you will be retouched or just prints from the files you get on the disk.  If that is the case, I would just order the potraits yourself, and ask for maybe more thank yous.  50 is kind of a waste, since most people have 150+ at their wedding.
