You get 40 edited photos & then more unedited ones? Or are they only giving you 40 edited photos total?

But, you are getting two photographers.  That’s probably the bulk of the cost. It’s not the prints, it’s the extra body.

wait….so they don’t gibe you any of the other unedited photos? they’re going to take a thousand or so photos and not do anything with them if you don’t pay for them? i’d double check on that, i’ve nevr heard of such a thing. just for comparison’s sake, we’re paying $3000 for 8 hours of coverage by 2 shooters, plus a 2 hour engagement shoot, and we get a DVD with 500-1000 color-corrected and retouched as necessary photos.

Hmm maybe they are talking about prints? The price seems right for 2 photogs if you were getting all the rights to your photos…but if you are only getting 40 photos TOTAL then no. I understand them not retouching every single photo…but you should at least be getting all the rights to your photos and the photos on disks for that amount!

ummmm holy molly that’s a lot of money for 80 pics on a disk.  I mean if it were 80 pics in a super nice album or something I might be able to understand.  But what are they going to do with all the other pics they take?

that number does seem weird.  I’ve never heard of 40 photos being edited.  You should talk to them to clarify.  And if they don’t do their own editing on all their images, I’d think about choosing another photographer.  Some photogs outsoruce editing, which I think is bizarre too.

I am getting approx 600 edited images from the event.  I’m paying more than you are, but my package also includes unlimited day of coverage with 2 shooters and an album and the disk with all edited images and printing rights.

this does not sound right at all. i’ve never heard of a photographer who only gives 40 images on a disk. look for someone else.

We paid 2850 plus tax for two shooters for 8 hours at our wedding, including a photobooth setup, and a two hour engagement session.  They provided a proof book of 200 photos selected by them, as well as a disk of about 600 pictures from the wedding, with no doubles (ie, the same picture in black and white, sepia and colour).  Some were very edited with effects etc, but all were retouched as necessary.  (Not to out him, but Darling Husband had a pimple on his forehead on our wedding day, and it’s not visible in ANY of the photos we were provided with, so at least the ones he’s in, you can tell they at least did a little retouching)

We were also provided a disk with about 60 pictures from our engagement session as well as a “brag book” of engagement photos, and 100 table cards with one of our engagement photos on it with information directing guests to their website to view the wedding slideshow a couple weeks after.

However, I suppose we may have caught an up and coming company, as they’ve raised the price for our package by about $1000 for 2011.

We paid right at 2K for 1 photographer (who is awesome) for 7 hours, no limit on how many pics she’d give us or take (but she’s usually around 600 edited or more), full rights to edited images on a disk and an album.  But she’s awesome – like I LOVE her!  I know that NY is a lot more expensive for vendors…but she does travel so you might be able to work something out?

She’s an amazing photog, but she’s one of the best people I’ve ever met.

I think the fact that it is so limited is weird – but maybe its just unclear and means prints?  If not, I’d definitely look elsewhere!

Maybe it’s because they only typically do theatre/headshots that they provide such a limited selection?  I would also recommend going with a photog who has done weddings before, especially for that price!
