Hi guys, I have found a photographer I really like. He charges $2600 for 6 hours. This includes a DVD of images (400-500!) online viewing and ordering.
He will take $300 off as I don’t want an engagement shoot and a further 10% off as its a weekday. So in total it would cost $2070.
He has great reviews and I have met him and I like him as a person. Basically, is this a good deal? I don’t really know how much photo costs here no mind in NYC!
any advice would be appreciated!

Actually, I would want a disc of my images so that I could print them myself. If you have to order directly from the photographer, you will be eating all of your savings in prints. Most photographers charge at least $10 per print.

Personally, I don’t know how you found someone so inexpensive in NYC. The average photo package in NYC is closer to $6,000-$7,500 and it’s not atypical to see photographers that are 2x this range.
Is 6 hours enough? The average package is closer to 10 hours. The hi-res DVD and rights to the photos is a must have, as others said. Are you sure that you’re ok without an album? Have you clarified timeline for getting your photos post event?

I don’t have my venue yet! But my coworker used an Erica Lyn from http://www.ericalynphotography.com and loved her photos from her wedding. I will most likely reach out to her and I know she works with your budget from what my coworker told me.
