800 for two shooters all day and epics. 🙂  It was a friend of mine that was right out of photography school, so I got a great deal.  And she did a fantastic job!

Our person normally charges $5k, but since we went to high school with him he’s doing it for $3k, which includes a second photographer and all day services.

$3900 for unlimited all day coverage, a second shooter, an engagement session, and an online gallery/printing rights.  This was the lowest price yet the best package we found for an independent and awesome photographer in Chicago/NWI!!

We paid our photographer $550 for an egagement session, 8 hours the day of the wedding, a matted photo from our engagement shoot for guests to sign, and a disc of all images fully edited and released so we could print our own pictures.  I’m making our album so we saved money there.  I should mention that our photographer is a friend of ours who does weddings part time and usually charges about 3 times as much.  We got a great deal!
