Yeah shop around.  I haven’t gotten my pics yet, but I found a photographer that I like for low $$.

Be up front, tell them (politely and kindly) that you love their work, but this (maybe start at $1500) is your budget, say you’d love to have them but you guys are battling, and ask, if there’s anything they can do. 

 

Most will look into a discount, and if not, then upping your deal, like throwing in another product to the mix. 

 

It’s so worth it to get great photographers on the day, I’m sure you’ll be stoked if you love their work that much, but give negotiating a try, you never know 🙂

$2,000 is actually pretty low for exceptional photography! I think you got a deal…

I believe you that they are good, but they’re also not the only good ones out there.

I’d sit down and talk to your FI. His heart seems set on these photogs, and your heart seems set on the dress. Can you afford both?

yeah, $2000 for photos is way cheap!!  well, not cheap, but very very reasonable for great talent!  some other commenters seem to be able to view their work… i can’t find a link.  but my photographer was $3500 for an engagement session, him, a 2nd photographer, and unlimited time and pics, a bunch of albums, CD, etc.  Photography is the one thing you shouldn’t skimp on, your photos are the one thing you’ll be left with to remember your day!  Do you want them to be gorgeous works of art or look like your auntie muriel could have taken them with her Canon Powershot?? If you love these guys and can get them for as low as $2K then do it!
