Asking for less hours for wedding photography…

Coco Brown Walker :  We used a very sought after local photographer for our engagement pics and while they were beautiful and artsy they weren’t us.  A hour or so long session was $800.  I’m so glad we did engagement pics with her before committing thousands for our very small courthouse wedding and dinner reception. 

We ended using a photographer who we adore and have used since of newborn and family pics.  We got married during the week so she agreed to charge us her hourly portrait rate.  I recommend getting married on not a Saturday if you can to see if you can get a similar deal.  I ended up paying slightly less for 3 hours of photography than I did for our engagement pics. 

If you can afford/want engagement pics it would be a great way to decide if a pricey dream photographer is worth it.

We had our photographer only for a few hours. We talked about it before signing the contract. It is a detail that can be worked out.
