I think it will vary on the location and experience of photographer.  In KC, we found a photographer we really liked and our package is $1950, which includes:

Engagement Shoot

2 shooters on day-of, unlimited time and locations

DVD or CD-Rom of all edited images in high-resolution

“Premiere Party…”  hehe, he invites us to come to his studio and preview our wedding images with a few friends – drinks, snacks provided 🙂

For $2k, we’re getting one photographer, all day, engagement shoot, CD of all the photos, rights to the photos, and a 4×6 of each photo.  It seems like a lot to me, but I did a lot of comparing with other photographers in the area and with what I got, it would have been about $3k with any other photographer.

My photography was about $4150 and included an engagement session, all day wedding photography with 2 photographers, online galleries, a DVD of all high res wedding images, an 11×14 magazine style album and 2 mini parent albums (copies of our albums but smaller).  We also get to do a photo session with them once a year for our lifetime!

We are paying $1600 and this includes travel time (about 1 1/2 hours), 2 photographers, unlimited pictures for 8 hours, a 10×10 wedding album, CD with all pictures so we can use to order prints from anywhere, editing, and an online gallery for guests to order from.

We’re on a tight budget and the number scared us at first but I know we’re getting a good deal!

-2 photographers, multiple locations, 4 hrs. (we are having two large wedding ceremonies, so we just wanted the basics for this one), CD with photos, rights to the photos, coffee table book, all taxes

That was MUCH cheaper than anyone else in our area (usually $2,000-$4,000), but we wanted a more casual style of picture because of the multiple wedding thing, and this couple is just in the process of moving their business from one city to another, so they were looking to build up their client base.

Well for ours (Spokane, Wa) we’re getting one of the most basic packages for $1300 with the chance to barter halibut for partial payment. It comes with:

  • 4 hrs of coverage
  • black & white and special effects included (special effects would be color saturation and the like)
  • CD with all of the images
  • 20 pg album with 4 digital pages up to 4 images per page
  • newspaper print (4×5)

We’re thinking about adding in at least one more hour of pictures and that would only be $150. Also, I think we might get a slight discount for it being off-season. We’re having a friend take our engagement photos and we’re printing off all of our own photos. I’m probably going to just make copies of the cd for family that wants it and then they can decide what they want to do after that.

What’s nice with our photographer is that if we decide to go to another location and take pictures then we won’t be charged for moving. We can actually go to as many places as we want as long as we have the time.

I found a married couple in Ontario, Ca. That will do my wedding for $2500. It includes:

2 photographers

engagement session (unlimited photos)

all day coverage (unlimited amount of photos)

Light editing (color balance, blemishes, etc)

a 12×12 digtal album (I forget exactly how many pictures are included, but it’s a good amount)

I forget what size but a blow up of an engagement photo (to be displayed at the wedding) & another of the wedding itself

rights to all the pictures that were taken from both the wedding and the engagment shoot!!

I thought this was an amazing deal considering you don’t get half as much with other photographers for the same price in LA!!!
