    @Taylor4:  $900 more for an album is pretty decent if it’s a coffee table style album.

    I’m impressed that so many people have found such great deals.  In my experience, it was basically impossible to find a good photographer that was less than $2,500.  Most of the photogs i came across were all in the $3000-$4500 range, but I also live in a very expensive part of the US.

    I’m lucking out– my dad and brother are both photographers so they are going to be my photographers!  Free!

    $1675, but we’re getting a great deal because I used my small business relationships/connections.  It’s usually double that.  Two shooters, 8 hours of coverage, engagement photos, touch ups and all rights to photos.  They do gorgeous work and I can’t wait to see the results.

    Videography is another $1500 from another company.

    @SerenaSF:  I think the cheaper packages probably have a different quality of photography and postproduction that the rest of us are looking at. I found less than about $2200 for quality photography was impossible, and I’m in a moderately priced area. Anything less than that was someone who does wedding photography as a hobby/side-business.  I wanted an actual professional.

    Our package is $3570 and includes:

    Engagement shoot

    Engagement photos on disc

    2 photographers

    Wedding photos on disc

    10 x 10 40 page flush mounted wedding album

    Creative slideshow with images as well as video clips of the day

    We didn’t want to spend over $3000, but decided to go with it since the package includes an awesome album and the engagement shoot. Not to mention our photographer’s amazing!

    Ours was $3000 including tax. It includes two photogphers for unlimited coverage and full rights to the pis. It is a husband and wife team and I really liked their style so we splurged.

    We’re paying 2500 for photography, but if we want the digital prints, its going to be an extra 500 -_- This price does include an epics session though.

    mine was $1500, although her actual price is typically $2500.  i had included 6 – 8 hour coverage and all high res edited pics on DVD plus a proof book all pics. an album would have been $500 extra.

    I am very lucky that the lady who did my e-pics here in Vancouver (I met her because her husband works with my mom) is planning on vacationing in Maui during my wedding this summer.  She offered to do my pics for a good price because of her connection to my mom.

    For $1800, she is going to do coverage from getting ready-first dance, two photographers (her husband is her second shooter), I can’t quite remember how many edited photos but enough that I was happy with it, a disc with all the photos that I can print myself, and a professional album.  I was so happy because I was worried I would have to hire someone in Hawaii that I had never met.
