….wait, they’re charging $400 for 25 prints? THAT seems a little excessive, especially for such an inexpensive photog!

The price is definitely right, but double check all the details – you’d hate to get stuck with only 2 hours of reception coverage if you’re having a six hour reception, or a photog who only takes 15-20 photos in an hour, or something like that.

Am I missing something? The only difference I see in the descriptions of the two packages are the 25 prints!

Something seems off… I agree with ddw, the two packages seem very similar for such a big jump in price.  Do you get a copyright release with the first one?  I saw some photographers who would give you the cd, but would make you pay a couple hundred more for the rights to make prints from it.  I would call them and ask for more details, it seems too good to be true.

yeah, or only a portion of the images (only the ones they decide are ‘edit worthy’ – not necessarily a large portion of all those taken) are included on the disc. I ran into that with one potential (well, not for long!) photog.

The tough thing with cutting costs is that sometimes it means you get what you pay for. I hope you’ve found an awesome deal though, because keeping your photography budget under $500 would be awesome!

I’m all for saving money but photography is HUGE, you have them for the rest of your life and the descriptions just sound kinda sketchy to me…I would keep looking and even if you end up with this one, you will have something to compare to.

Seems like they might do more editing in the second package.  The wording is wishy washy.
