I’m from the Tri-State area (CT) and $2k for what you’re getting is super cheap.

I’m in the Bay Area and paying $5K for my photog.  Sounds like you’re getting a good deal at $2K.

I am from the midwest where things are significantly cheaper  then other parts of the country and I still think you are getting a pretty good deal!

That sounds like a great deal to me.

I’m from Minneapolis, and I think that’s a fab deal. If you push much further, I’d think you’d possibly insult and lose the option. 

I say go for it (our original package was $2,750 for 6 hours with 1 photographer, 1 day-of-coordinator, rights to the photos, an engagement session) — and our photog was on the less-expensive end of the photographers we’d interviewed (some were over 7K).


That’s a great deal — snap it up now!

I think 2K is an awesome deal.  don’t try to negotiate TOO much.  otherwise, often times…the vendor doesn’t feel as much motivation to do a GREAT job b/c they know they aren’t being paid as much for it.  i think it’s important to make sure never to underpay someone offering a good service.

I’m getting married in upstate NY and think that’s a really good price.

I’m paying $900 for 8 hours of one photog, no albums, and all prints on CD.

I agree, take it! It sounds like a great deal. 2 photogs seems like a great option. We paid much more for 12 hours, 1 photog, CD of touched up prints, proofs, proofbook, and classic matted album (but it was worth it, we loved our photographer and our photos!)
