My photographer includes it as part of his package.  Other photographers in nyc that I looked at all charged about $300-$500 for the engagement shoot.

We had a e-pics in our package but I asked them to drop it because we decided to take them on our own.  I’m so glad I did because they wanted $500 for the e-session.  We ended up spending nothing because we had our friend take pictures with her camera.  They turned out really great and the Fiance photoshopped them.  Check them out under my post 1940s engagement photos

Ours were free as well.  A way for us and our photographers to get to know each other and for us to get comfortable in front of the camera.  Sorry can’t be more help-  might be a good negotiating thought though??

Our e-pics were an add-on to our wedding package.  It cost us $300.  We got our money’s worth though since she shot with us for almost two hours!

Ours were included in our package, but our photographer usually charges $250 for them.  They lasted just shy of 2 hours. It only includes 1 hi-res file, though.  Otherwise, you have to either buy the rest of the digital photos ($400 – yikes) or buy the individual prints.

Ours were included in the package, but the photographer usually charges $300 for an e-shoot. Our shoot was about 2 hours, and we get a CD with all the images on it, and I’m pretty sure we can do whatever we want with them! I should be getting them any day now, and I’m so excited!

Our photographer was planning on charging a very reasonable $500, but because of time restraints, we went with a friend.

Cost of our photos: $6.50 plus tax (price of a burrito and horchata!)  Fun urban decay shoot.  Priceless!
