We did sign a contract early on and are purchasing the Deluxe Package. It came with a price sheet and check sheet to turn in to the WC to purchase additional items.
There was no contract for the add ons, only the actual wedding ceremony package (which we chose a free one). It clearly states on the website that prices are subject to change (with regard to the optional services)without notice so I didn't say a word because I knew that I didn't have a leg to stand on.
I am very happy with our photos. We had a number of them that are awesome. I took the album to work to show the girls and they all had a different favorite. I can't even decide on a favorite because there are som many tht turned out to be frame-worthy. I had some mixed feelings going in because photos were so important to me (not so much DH so he fought me on spending anything on them) and I knew that our budget was so limited that we couldn't afford the cost of the photographer plus their accomodations even for one night. After seeing the final products, I wouldn't hestiate to do it the same way again.
The forum definately exposes us to the refined and as a result we have higher expectations than if we never found this sanctuary. Its crazy how skewed our perception can become. I can see our photos meeting par to a lot of those shared on the forum, but in real life, they far exceed any of my friends' wedding photos. Maybe its because we live in a small town with limited resources, but half of the people that have seen them in person have actually remarked that they look like something out of a magazine.
