Ours also went through Pictage, but I found it kind of convenient for everyone who wanted pictures.  Our album and our CD still went through our photographer, and Pictage periodically offered some 2 for 1 deals that made it more affordable to order prints.  They were good quality, and I no longer get frequent emails from them 🙂

thats completely normal.  Ours were through a third party site as well (though not pictage.)  It might be shocking because its not what you were expecting, but that is the norm

I think even if the photographer hosts the pictures in a gallery the prints are really expensive. 

Our Photographer charges:

4×6 – $2.50

5×7 – $8.50

8×10 – $10

@cazsos – good point.  The photos prints are expensive – but they arent like the prints you would get out of a Kodak machine.  Photographers print with a long lasting high quality ink that doesnt fade over time.  We had several 8x10s and panoramics printed, they are well worth it.

Also to note-with our photographer, even though the photos were hosted on a third party site, the orders were directed to her in her studio, where SHE printed and sent them out.  Not sure if thats the case with Pictage, but its something to look into.

I would have to agree that Pictage is overpriced. Did you get the CD of high resolution images that you mentioned was also in your contract?

I uploaded all of our wedding photos onto Walgreens.com , and then sent the link out to family and friends. They always have great prices, are easy to order from (everyone has one nearby), and that would be an easy way to get around ordering from Pictage.

Yes, I’ve heard of using your CD to upload pics to Snapfish or the like, then guests can order off there for very cheap.
