(Closed) Did I get a good deal?

I am not sure what part of the country you are in, but the pricing is well below average.  Whether it’s a good deal or not will depend on the final product.  If you are confident this photographer will deliver and they DO deliver, then you got a good deal.  If not, even $100 isn’t a good deal for crappy photos.

$1,000 for an album isn’t outrageous, do you know what kind it is? (brand?)

I also wonder how much editing they do with a one week turnaround.

That’s WAY below what I paid in the DC area for a similar package.  Make sure you talk to some past clients and get referrals/recommendations, as well as reading reviews online.

@Big Truck:  I can’t tell you if it’s a good deal or not. I would say do not go by what is on the website before you sign. Make sure you meet with them and ask to see a full wedding. Editing can help make a website look great (only pulling the top 3-4 best of each wedding), but it may be those 3-4 were the only good ones of the whole day and the album will not look as good. 

The pricing makes me think it’s someone who is starting out so the chances of that happening are higher.

$1000 is pretty normal for a high quality album.

Depends on where you live to be honest.  I live in Louisiana and I’ve seen some photographers going from $1,500 – over $2,000

Im not getting a professional photographer because I can not afford one.  My cousin has recently started doing photography and she has talent.  So for my wedding I am having her do our photos plus I am having the disposable ones so we can have even more.

I plan to do my own album and those I like the best I will order online in a book form to give to both our parents as their album. (way cheaper too)
