@Shannabanana:  What price range were you quoted?  If you really think about the time and overhead it takes for a photographer to do the job, it’s really not that much.  Excluding the cost of products, after your 5-10 hour day, the photographer will probably spend 10 hours or more on your images, culling, and retouching.

@USER876:  I know it’s worth it…But I definitely have had sticker shock looking as well!  They do put in a ton of effort and it takes a lot of work so they deserve it…  But I completely see where OP is coming from!

I def. had the same shock when I started my photographer research. Overall, pictures were the 3rd most expensize vendor in our wedding at just under $1000. I pretty much made a wsh list of what I wanted the photographer to be able to do or would do…like engagement photos, DVD/CD rights to all photos, professional, not creepy (that was exactly how it was worded on my wish list), reasonably priced. Then I emailed everyone who I was interested in and asked them all the same questions. . Some were WAY over budget and IMO lil unreasonable. But a majority of them were willing to work with our budget and make canges to their packages or create a custom package for us. A couple even threw in some free offers- like prints or e-photos as an incentive to go with them. We eventually choose a photographer we could’t be more happy with- gave us free e-photos as a trial run and got to keep the CD even if we didn’t go with him- they came out BEAUTIFUL and he gave us a discount for quick response and now I can’t wait for our wedding photos in May! Good luck!
