@rcorral: Hmm…our photog does not do it by the hour, it’s $1900 for the whole day (and it includes our engagement photos). We are having her do our “getting ready photos” that will start about 2 hours before the wedding. Then she is taking pics before the ceremony for about an hour and half, the ceremony (30min), during the cocktail hour (of us while others drink/eat) and then about 2 1/2 hours during the reception. She could stay longer, but there are only so many drunk dancing pics you need. In total that is about 6 1/2 hours we are allocating for her. And I think that is plenty.

So I think your scheduling sounds fine. Sorry, I don’t have much advice on how to negotiate a lower rate. You may consider being honest with her about your budget and seeing what she can do with it. Just say, we can afford $1500, what kind of package can you offer?
