    We are paying $2700 and that includes our engagement shoot. She's worth every penny. I received bother higher and lower quotes and the work wasn't as great as hers! So I'm really Happy!

    We opted not to have a photographer... We will have different family members with photography skills shoot different aspects of the day.

    We have two photographers for 7 hours and a free photobooth for booking with her. We also got a 15% discount on our engagement photo session. It cost us $1795 and then $150 for the engagement session. She has been great so far and I am so happy with our choice!

    I was surprised at how extreme the prices were for some photographers. We opted for a local husband and wife photography company that gives us 8 hours with 2 photographers and includes unlimited locations and an engagement shoot for just under $2000.

    We have an aquaintace who is a professional (i.e. magazines and other things), he gave us a quote of $2500, but I'm not sure is that an average price, or should I look around more, he did a friends of ours a couple years ago, and they were very happy with the pictures. I just know if price is reasonable for ceremony, photoshoot after, and reception. Cermony and photos at same location.

    He just told me I get

    you will have me all day/ night. If you want me to shoot you and your girls getting ready in the am thats fine...of course the ceremony, post ceremony photos, reception...pretty much everything. Usually 100 + photos....fully edited

    Some family friends will be our photographers and one was actually hired for us as a wedding gift and the other is giving us a big discount so all in all I think we are paying less than $500.

    I knew it could be pricey but I thought most would be max 2000$. I was surprised that the majority were 4000+! I got mine for 1900. Still way more than I wanted but photos are the most important thing to me so I didn't want to cheap out too much
