Were paying $4500 for photo + raw footage video… its the lower end of what I consider great photography… Its the one thing I said from say one I would blow my whole budget on…

@Mrs. AF: *hugs* I went to an AMAZING wedding this past summer by a lake and the bride spent less than 4k on everything including her dress. Then we went to a wedding last month that was around 30k and it wasn’t nearly as beautiful as the 4k one. I really belive that its not the price tag that makes a wedding but about the couple seeing through with a vision.

Our photographer was 5K-maybe a little over. My (second choice) wedding dress  was $1200 and the one I LOVED was $3000. Photography was more important, and I looked just as nice in my second choice dress so I guess in our case we just prioritized. I’m sure there are some people who can afford EVERYTHING they want and I think that they are really lucky!

lots of people can afford it, lots of people cant.  our package was closer to $6,500 and included our TTD and my boudoir.  its all in relation to how much you are spending on the entire wedding.  its also much different on the coasts than it is in the middle of the country. Im in california and its not unheard of at all.

I use to think I needed to spend a years worth salary on a wedding and then I read Sara’s blog about her $2k wedding. Her wedding felt and looked more amazing than some of the big cost weddings I have gone to.

Wow.  I had NO idea how much photographers cost. My friend happens to be a photographer and I just never ask him how much he charges.  It’s my gift from him.  He’s not doing an album–that’s on me (he doesn’t do those anyway, just takes the photos). I guess I’m really lucky!
