i have thought about doing e-pics either after or right before the wedding. because we are getting married in Jamaica and will only be meeting our photographer 2 days before the wedding.  so know i can ask her to do them.  my only issue is what is the point, because we will then be at the same resort then for our e-pics AND our wedding pics! there would be no change in scenery, just clothing.

but i think if you want pro-pics (non-wedding and close up) of you and your hubby, then go for it!  i guess *technically* they won’t be e-pics because u are not engaged anymore.  but who cares about being technical!  and by the way, you and your hubby and pets ARE a family. so you can call them family shots!

Yeah I’ve seen a few people who have done couple’s shoots. I think they are a great idea:) One girl I know did one and called it a “newlywed shoot”. I guess they weren’t that happy with their engagement photos.

I think if you want a photo shoot with your Darling Husband, you should have it & not be at all concerned about naming it!

Btw, I love it when people include their pets in their photos!

We really were thinking of doing a Day After…like just the two of us…still glowing and happily excited! Since our new venue is only for 4 hours, its going to be pretty quick so between First Look Pics and Ceremony/Reception, we are still going to have some hours left over/unused, so I was trying to think of suggestions/possibilities if she didnt offer me a lesser cost!

Why don’t you start a new trend, Newlywed shots!

Go for it.  It would just be a general portrait session.  You can probably find someone to do it for around 200 if you shop around.

I’d love to do anniversary shoots with my Fiance after we’re married if we don’t have kids for a while. I say go for it!

I would DEFINITELY do this! In fact I think this would be such a fun thing to do for a one year anniversary or something similar. It’s great to have professional pictures because they are just so much nicer than point and shoot cameras!

I like the sound of B better, to be honest. But A just might not know how to set up his pricing?

I think you should negotiate with A to get hi-res dvd with his pricing.  Esp if you were going to be hiring him and giving him work in the future. 

I think this is an awesome idea, and whoever you go with you won’t regret doing it.

I’d go with B.  The newer guy’s work may be improving, but that is a samle of the BEST of his newer work.  Can he deliver in all lighting conditions?  Photographer B may be more consistant, while photographer A may get good results only when conditions are ideal.  With photography, I am a believer that most of what you are paying for is piece of mind that you will get the results you are after.

I wouldn’t comment on Photographer’s A pricing, it’s rude, and a turnoff, and you would feel the same if someone else criticized your pricing structure.  He is charging most likely what the market bears for his quality of work accounting for his overhead expenses and margins he desires.

I would say most photographers are not willing to take on gigs under 200 dollars, you know the drill, the time involved in the end, even doign a 30 min session.

  Perhaps you can ask him to throw in a disk of high resolution edited files for the same price and take it from there.

Also, his starting price obviously cators to a lower end market, but may be very very basic coverage.  The better comparison would be to look at what he offers for 700 vs what you offer for 2500.

What are you saying, is that, it’s not worth it to you shoot a wedding for under 2500, where as he is willing to take on lower priced gigs (with probably less deliverables and time commitment).

We’re doing it! We’ve been married for two years and never did an engagement session. We’d like some up to date photos of us before we start having kids (which could be awhile). Hopefully looking to have them done in August.
