Unless your having a short/quick ceremony/reception, I’d say the $2200 Package! 

Is this for one photographer or two?

Honestly neither, They seem kinda pricey for the time they are offering… but thats just me, My photog is charging 600 and will be there for the whole day, granted he is more of a friendor than anything else.

Out of the two of those, I’d go with the pricey one – only because you get more coverage. With only 4 hours, you’ll miss out on a lot of photos (getting ready + ceremony + photos with hubby and bridal party + reception is going to need way more than 4 hours). There are photogs out there that give you full day coverage, which is nice, but if you can’t seem to find one of those or are smitten with this photogs work, then I’d stick with the 6 hour deal (and maybe even see if you can pay for another hour or two). This one does seem a bit pricey for what’s being offered though…

the 2nd one because of the 6hrs. That was the minimum time I wanted to be able to get all the pics I wanted.

Aggreed with @CupCakeMeg. Unless you have a short wedding and money is an issue, the $2200 seem to be a better package.

@DesireeAnne: For the difference of $700 I’d be tempted to go with the 1st one.

Eek yea I didn’t even think to look at your location!! Sorry about that. I’m from NY and had a tough time finding something that didn’t break the bank (the photogs I loved tended to start upwards of 5k). It took lots of hunting to find ours. Good luck with the search! Wish I knew of some photogs in your area to recommend.

If it was me I’d want 8 – 10 hours of coverage. I’m getting an all day package myself. From getting ready into the reception. Not all night but for the first while.

Either see if you can pay per hour for a bit more or take away the prints in book in exchange for more time.

Unless 6 hours is enough for you, then go with that one!

I agree with @LongDistancePlanning.  I was really only looking at packages that had at least 10 hours included because I wanted some “getting ready” pictures.  However, it really depends on your budget and how long your wedding is going to be.  If the $2,200 is within your budget, I’d say it’s worth it to get the extra 2 hours!

I would see how much they charge per hour and see if you can tailor a different package. For most weddings you really want 8-10 hours of coverage. But you can have your own prints (and even album) made via AdoramaPix or some other site. Although, if I had a choice, I’d still want my photographers to create a photo album–they usually have a great eye for layout.

Go to them and see what they would charge for 8-10 hours of coverage, proofs and DVD with 8×10 album.

 

Go to http://www.wpja.com/ and check all the photographers in your area. Maybe you can find someone less expensive.

I say go with the package with more coverage.  Also, don’t be afraid to ask them to take things out you might not want so you get the coverage you need at the price you want.  We had our photog take out the album and it brought a more expensive plan within $100 of our budget.

Neither. I would want 8 hours. I would also want clarification on how many of the photos are edited, and how many photos (roughly) I can expect from the day. If it isn’t 100% edited, and i’m not getting at least 70 photos/hour fully edited, i’m not signing (but that’s my own wants – and it is what we got from our photog – 90/hour, actually)
