    Ok, clearly I’m in the minority here.  I have a VERY tight budget & have recently lost my job.  There is no way in the world I can spend over $3500 for a photographer, no matter how important I think it is.  Don’t get me wrong – I see the value & if money was no object, I’m sure I would feel different.  The reality of my situation is that I may only be able to hire a professional for the getting ready shots, ceremony & maybe some family stuff.  I will likely need to have a friend capture the reception.  Even then, I’ll be looking for an up & comer whose style reflects our style & will work cheap. 

    Yeah, it’ll be tough, but I’d rather have a fabulous party with all the people important to me & nice photos than a small ceremony with few guests & fabulous photos.

    The final range is too wide. I was looking to spend $1500, but I cannot even consider spending $3000. I ended up finding someone who is charging me $2500 for six hours with two photographers and high-res digital images (and also an engagement shoot), but I was only willing to pay that much more because her work is EXCELLENT (and she’s charging me over a third less than her advertised price).
