    Ours will be $400 – that’s with unlimited access to digital & edited shots, and I think a few prints complimentary. I can’t remember exactly how many hours of shooting, but I think 3 or so. 

    It’s on the pricy side, but we’re having them done by my absolute favorite photographer, whose wedding rates we may very well not be able to afford.

    I think it depends on the photog.  If you can find someone starting out, you could probably get a session for around $100.  My photog is very reasonable (her wedding packages, etc.) and her engagement shoot is $300.

    Keep in mind that it’s not only their time doing the shoot but editing, sorting, etc.

    Ours was included in our package but if you purchased it a la carte from our D.C. based photographer it cost $250 for a 1 hour session.

    Mine will be $60/hour, plus $2.50 per picture.  It’s the best option for us because we just have to buy the ones we want.  We’ll get the pictures on a cd and she’ll also print them for us.

    Ours was included in our wedding package, but normally our girl charges $150.  We got a framed photo and signature mat and a photo cd out of it too.

    Ours was included with our wedding package, and I really recommend going that route if you can.  It’s a great opportunity to get to know your photog before your wedding!

    $5000. This includes e-pics, trial hair/make-up day, bachlorette party, wedding day and “rock the dress” which is after the honeymoon. She is amazing and has done magazine shoots for DIME magazine (basketball) and just did a wedding last week for an NFL player and his beautiful wife. Ps, this photographer is my best friend! =)

    Mine was free!  I am a teacher and I am very lucky to have a parent this year who is a wedding photographer!  She was so happy when I got engaged that she offered to do e-pics for free!  We loved working with her and how our pics turned out so we ended up hiring her for our wedding pics.  She (and most photgs in the area) offer wedding packages that include engagement pics.  I would suggest looking for your wedding photographer and having the same person do your e-pics.  I really think it helps to get confortable with the person and see how they work before the big day.  Good luck!
