Why don’t you talk with the photographer and see what he can do for you, and just because your wedding isn’t for two years doesn’t mean that you can’t sign a contract and lock in the rates.

Wow that’s a big increase.  Maybe they had very low prices because they were new?  If you wanted to book it now, you might be able to get it for the current price in case there are any changes later.

Def get in touch with the photog, there should be wiggle room on that. Also, check the exact details of the package- we don’t want an engagement session, so that knocked 250 off the cost, and we’re doing our own album on Blurb, will save there. Then check how many hours, and how many actual people you’re hiring – there may be ways to trim that without sacrificing too much.

My best guess is his prices were low because he originally was just getting into wedding photography & now that he’s had experience, he feels qualified to raise his prices. I did that, I started out asking a lower amount & since then, I’ve raised my pricing because I fully know what I’m doing. However, you may want to send him an email saying that you saw his website last week & are interested in booking him for your June 2012 wedding & if he would be able to apply the pricing from last week, that you’d like to sign a contract & pay the deposit (if you are) & see what he says. He may not be able to give you the previous pricing, however if you sign a contract now, make sure his pricing & what’s included in that pricing, is listed in the contract. If his rates go up in the future, you have a set price already that can’t change due to it being in the contract.

Where in Canada are you? I might have a recommendation!

@summerlove – My recommendation is actually in Halifax ๐Ÿ™ oh well! My suggestion would be to try booking the photographer now (not this one, I realize he’s now out of your price range). I booked in July 2009 for our May 2011 wedding and got the 2009 prices ๐Ÿ™‚
