A little under 2 grand for 8 hours of coverage, editing, and the rights to all of the pictures. All pictures sent to me on a disc.

They are phenomenal and I love them!!!

My best friend did my engagement shoot.

$1050 for a 1-hr engagement shoot and 4 hrs of wedding day coverage with one photographer. Pictures will be on a flash drive. 

I’m happy with our photographer because her prices were around the cheaper end amongst reputable professionals in the area, and her style is exactly what I wanted.

$2250 for her+ an assistant for the full day. Edited images and engagement shoot included. We skipped printed photos and the book, and will do that ourselves after. Her prices are usually around $3k, but she really wanted to shoot at our venue so gave us a really good deal.

For $1,595 we got 5 hours, with a second shooter, 1-hour engagement session, photo album, 10×10 canvas, and ownership of our photos. 

However, a few months later there was a minor bump in the road and they offered us a discount. So we ended up paying $1,330.  I think it was a great deal!

Engagement was $1000, included full rights to high quality and low-res. I think we got about 100 pics, edited, in two hours.

We paid $3450 for an engagement session, unlimited hours on our wedding day (we used him for about 9 hours), a second shooter, and a 2-week turnaround. We ended up with about 1,100 edited photos, with full rights. We live in an expensive area (Boston), and it was an absolute STEAL! I love, love, love our photos, and can’t believe we paid that little! I know our photographer has already raised his prices since our wedding (June 2015), but he’s still underpriced for his talents and the market.

$3800, 10 hours, 2 photographers, and 2 additional sessions which we used for the engagement pictures. 

Anybody do a bridal portrait session? Worth it?
