@Stoich:  to a certain extent of course a client will pay more for talent but the reality is that there are tons of expenses to cover. I researched the business of wedding Photography very extensively before hiring my photographer. I wanted to make sure my photographer was charging enough to have all the best equipment, learning, insurance etc. I apologize if I misunderstood your comment but you seemed to be saying that photographers are charging too much and making some insanely lucrative salary. I know that not to be the fact. Though I actually wish they did. The very talented and hard working photographers who charge top dollar deserve it. It’s a stressful and demanding job that few people are uniquely qualified to perform.

Those package prices do seem a little high.  However, this is your wedding photographer, and this is one area I think it is worth to go big on.  Our photographer was 2,000 for 8 hours and an engagement shoot in Austin, Texas, and that was considered expensive at the time.
