@jb20:  I’ve covered a wedding on 3 1/2 hours before with everything that you described, except getting ready photos.  You should be fine unless you really want every single moment of the day captured… which really isn’t that necessary.

@jb20:  In your post you have 4 hours outlined as to when you want photos taken. Something for you to consider, when most photographers offer 4 hours of coverage, it is 4 continuous hours. So if they have to travel (between ceremony and reception) that is part of the 4 hours of their time. I’m just not sure from your post if your ceremony and reception are in the same place or not.

Price break???  He is $650 for 4 hours!!  Obviously this is not a professional – but still that is ridiciculously cheap.

@continuumphotography:  I agree.

OP, if you’re satisfied with his work, then that’s fine!  That’s all that matters, really.  But don’t complain if you don’t like the quality of the photos in the end (it happens all the time on these boards!)

@jb20:  Asking for a price break on $650 is ridiculous. Photographers running legitimate businesses would need to charge more than double that to make even a little money on the work involved.

@jb20:  i agree with pp, what about travelling time? my photographers time starts running from the first moment he arrives at the venue and then runs continuously. 

so for example, we are going from hotel to church to reception venue and there will be about just under an hours travelling time. but that travelling time is paid by me. it will probably  be the same with yours if everything isnt in the same place

also seriously, thats incredibly incredibly cheap! 162.50 dollars an hour?  wow. i wouldnt rely on a further discount to be honest

Agreed-  that is really good for four hours! Do you mind me asking where you live?
