Those who flew a photographer in...

We were originally going to go with Claudia Rodriguez for our wedding and TTD session. But this past weekend we had out e-pics taken by my favorite photographer in the area. I originally wanted her for our wedding when we thought it was going to be nearby, not a DW. I absolutely loved her and her work, she wa sso friendly that I just wanted to book her for our wedding.
So today I messaged her on MySpace (lol) and she said she'd be delighted to come. She would just need us to pay for her airfare and hotel room. Which is a given. And she would take $1,000 off the package price for us. So instead of $3,500 it would be $2,500+ $1,600 for 4 days/3 nights at the Excellence with us. And she's going to do a TTD shoot with me for free the day after the wedding. I thought this was awesome!
So what were some perks, if any that you got hiring a photographer to come with you?
I also wanted to add with Claudia's pricing going up for '09 and another increase for 2010, the pricing works out to almost the same for us. I think I would rather spend $600 more and have someone I know and trust and have had experience with, imo.

From what I heard, most photographers do offer a discount, and those who haven't done a DW definitely offer a much larger discount than those who are extremely popular. Many even do their first DW free (travel fees only)!

It was wonderful for us to have pictures of the whole week!
I got all of the edited pictures on CD - 15 discs! I them printed the ones that I wanted. She is doing our photo book design as a gift to us, I will just pay to print.
