What you have sounds reasonable.

We paid about $2500 for our photographer and that inculded an engagement session, a bridal session and 9 hrs of wedding coverage with 2 photographers. We will get a usb drive with all edited photos from all three sessions. 

For our videographer we paid $1800 and they were there for 9 hrs as well. We will get a 15-20 min. edited video of our day and all the raw footage.

Your prices sound very reasonable.  It definitely depends on where you live.  I live in a pretty expensive area.  We’re paying $600 or an engagement shoot (1 1/2 hours, though we ended up taking pictures for about 2 hours) and $3800 for the wedding day (6 hours). For both, we get all the photos (minus the obviously bad ones) edited/photoshopped on a flash drive with all the rights to reproduce and print them. Our photographer doesn’t release any unedited photos because she doesn’t want anything subpar associated with her name.<br />

Our videographer is $2600 for a full day of coverage, two videographers, and a highlights reel. We’re planning to buy a semi-edited DVD of the most important moments after for $1200.

Your prices are very reasonable/ on the low end (though it does vary based on area)

We paid $5000 for photography-9 hours and an album. We paid about $2500 for videography.

$4400 for 8 hours of photos (no books, no engagement session), and $750 for 2 hours of video.  Prices really vary by style and quality.  It really depends on what you’re looking for.  When it comes to art, value is in the eyes of the beholder…

Were paying  $3’700 for 11hrs. We also get engagment photos and since there are 2 photographers we are both getting ‘get ready’ shots and video. This is 2 photographers and 2 video’s shootig in HD. We get a documentary style blu ray  and editied photos (not raw photos though). We also get a couple of coffee table books and no limits to the different places we take pictures.Im pretty excited! 

Our photographer and vidoegrapher came recommended by 2 other photographers. They are well known in the industry here. They were also the only combo video/photography that I liked….there were lots of ametures advertising for services…..

I’m paying $1925 for photography- 9 hours of shooting, all edited images with reproduction and printing rights, a meeting to see the pictures with the photographer & design a photo album and the album. The package also included an engagement shoot but since we won’t be doing the shoot, I just upgraded the photo album I wanted to a larger size.

Not doing video but most photographers I looked at in my area don’t offer videography services.

We’re paying $3450 for unlimited coverage on our wedding day with 2 shooters and an engagement session, which is a steal for our area. I originally thought I didn’t want/need a videographer, but now I really want one. The cheapest I can find in our area is ~$2000 (except for really crappy videographers), with most running between $3000-5000 or more. I’m waiting till closer to the wedding to book anyone, depending on what our budget is looking like at that point.
