DJ: Havent gotten one yet but I’ve priced them and in my area they range from $1300-$1500. 

Photographer: $2400 for 2 photogs for 8 hours. This was on the cheap side for my area, I was shocked that many started at $4000+. 

Forgot to add I’m getting married in CT.

I’m in Colorado, on a very small budget. I talked to co workers and friends, my DJ is AWESOME he’s charging $100 and my I went to school with my photographers daughter so she is charging $300.

My advice to those that are on a very small budget like me is to talk to your friends and coworkers, reach out on social media and see who knows who. Both my photographer and dj are good at what they do!

honeysag79:  We live in NY so everything is outrageously priced. However, the price we paid was considered a great deal for where we live. My sister is friends with a very popular DJ, he charged us $2,000 for the following:

5 hr coverage, 2 DJs and 1 MC, he also let us use his 2 big screen tvs bc we had 2 video momtages that we wanted to show. One od them he made for us for my fathers memorium and the other was made by our photographer 

Our Photographer/Videographer was $3900 and included the following:

9 hr coverage

2 photographers

1 videographer

We got to keep raw video footage 

45 min edited video

2 hr engagent session

All pictures photoshopped and edited (we got over 1600 shots)

Some other things were i cluded but these are the most important

honeysag79:  we had a hard time finding a dj too–good ones are so expensive! We finally found one for just over $1000 who I *hope* is good lol (has all great reviews). 

As for photographer, we lucked out and a friend of mine is an amazing photographer and offered to do our engagement photos for free and wedding photos at her hourly rate ($125/hr) rather than package price (which starts at like $3000 lol) every other decent photographer was around the same, and a good photographer is very important to me but we just couldn’t afford those prices.

honeysag79:  We´re payng approximately $770 for our DJ, we haven´t even met him yet but he comes with the recommendation of our venue so we´ll see.  He does do about 6 to 8 hours, so it isn´t a terrible price or anything.  Most DJs around here seem to cost more or less that.

 

We´re paying about $1200 for our photographer but it is a total steal since she is a childhood friend, her quality is amazing though!  We´re also paying about $1600 for our videographer, which is also a family friend who has his own company and is amazing at what he does.  So we´re paying about $2800 for photography and videography (with all inclusive packages), which is great and about $7-800 on a DJ.

We’re in Texas.

Our photographer was a steal at $550 for an engagement session, 4 hours of wedding day coverage, unlimited locations, and print release. We hired her when she was still a student, so we were able to get a good deal.

We’re not having a DJ.

  • Wedding: October 2014 - Disney

DC but celebration wedding is in Disney. My photographer is $2100 due to traveling but is a friend of ours. My DJ is $0 because we aren’t doing a DJ and dancing. I did shell out $2025 for a quartet for the ceremony and first hour of the reception though.
