oooh man, heck no, go back to your photographer and ask for those key shots!  is in in your contract that you could only have a certain number of pictures?  and did you get to choose those pictures?  you shouldn’t need to pay extra for that!  pictage’s prices are ridiculous!

Yeah, that TOTALLY doesn’t seem right.  It even sounds like he’s holding your pix ransom, in a way!  It’s not like he didn’t take the shots…I can understand him *maybe* wanting a little something if he edits them, but this just sounds weird.  Sorry, I’m not familiar w/ Pictage at all, so I can’t be of any help there.

maybe you can ask him to "exchange" the pics you want for the pics you don’t want… i mean, you should be happy with the pics that you get.  it wouldn’t hurt to at least ask…

Don’t ask, demand. I’m a photographer and I would never EVER take it upon myself to choose what photos my client wanted. Sure I remove shots where people blined sometimes or a bad lighting situation, but always make sure it’s compensated for with a similar if not exact shot.

Tell him you only want color versions, and make sure he’s giving you full sized images. If he’s only giving you something for e-mail usage it’s a rip off. Don’t mention to h im you can change the pics to black and white your self however – this might make him less likely to give you the others, just state you don’t care for the black and white as much and won’t order it so you’d like them replaced with other color photos from the day – even trade. 

What did the contrat exactly state about the CD, maybe we can help you more if we know the verbage used, it’s actually very important in finding a loop hole in situations – and this one certianly has to have one. This guy is crazy!

I’m not sure, but I think the Pictage prices may be set by each individual photographer.  We bought all of our prints off Pictage and the prices were great, especially w/ the 2 for 1 deal ($3.45 for 4×6, $10 for 8×10).  Perhaps you can check if your photographer can negotiate that?

Hope everything works out!
