I asked someone I went to high school with about being my photographer and she said her packages start at 1999 with engagement shoot. She’s not completely established yet, more of an up and coming. I am a budget bride, but photo’s are really important to me. I just want to know does this sound reasonable?

@nellybee: Like any wedding vendor there will be some variation in price (and talent). When I priced photographers around the Asheville area, most of the photographers with photos that I liked ranged from $2,000-5,000. I was originally hoping to spend about $1,500 on photography, but ended up spending $2,500 for wedding day and an engagement session.
The $1,999 from your friend might be a little high for someone starting out, but if they are good, then it’s worth the money.

I am probably going with a lady that I used to work with. Her prices start at $650 and go up. Most of the newbies I know start at $500 in my area (Hickory).

This is my photographer! http://www.yundtphotography.com/ They have been awesome so far. They are also very affordable. I put an add on craigslist and got tons of replies. That, for me, was the best way to get a lot of photographers, know what price range to expect, and then decide.
