I was wondering what everyone paid for their photographer and what was included?
An old college classmate has a photography business and her standard rate is $1500 for 8 hours of coverage, disk of hi-res photos, and online gallery of photos.
If we want extra hours, it’s $100 for every hour after the eight hours. There’s other extras, like prints, and albums.

Photographers charge a wide range depending on experience, ability, popularity, etc. We ended up spending around $5000 for 8 hours of coverage, hi-res disk of images, a 70 image album, a 20 image parent album and engagement session.

About $3500 for 10 hours, two shooters, cd of all high resolution images, 2 hour engagement session, album with photos of our choosing, proof book, guest book with photos from the engagement session, DVD slideshow, online gallery, $100 print credit. I thought it was a really good price for what we’re getting, and our photographer is awesome!

wow! can’t believe these prices. I actually don’t like having my picture taken so was just going to rely on a friend to take some pictures .. then realised it would be unfair to put that sort of pressure n them.
So i have paid £500 to have a photographer for 8 hours. It will mainly be reportage style, so very few of the formal line ups which makes me feel better.
