$866 includes e shoot with all images edited on a cd. All day wedding coverage. Photo guest book made of our e pics. 50 of our favorite prints,and all the other images edited on a CD with copyrights. I booked her over a year ago when she was still fairly new. Since then she has done a lot more weddings and her prices have more than doubled. I got lucky!

1400. But I am getting a really nice package with proofs, and a super awsome wedding album. It’s all leather and my Fiance is the one that got the most excited about this part. =] It’s the cheapest in my area with that deal. I just wish I could afford videography.

We are paying $1,200 for all day coverage(11am-9pm), a second photographer and I don’t remember how many edited pics, then we have all rights to the disc but it doesn’t come with any actual prints which is a bummer but she does great work so its worth it!
