    Someone please help me, I am so bummed right now!
    I'm in the same boat as you, except my FI will only budge so far.... and anything more than a $1,000 is out of the question. As important as photography is to me, we have to look at the big picture. $2000 extra toward a photographer means $2,000 further away from a down payment on a house.
    We're planning on using the resort photog because we simply cant afford the rates plus accommodations of a professional. Fortunately, the Moon Palace's photog looks like he's decent enough, and maybe with some guidance of specific shots wanted, we'll end up with a lovely album to show the grand kids.

    I wish you the best of luck! Keep your chin up!

      The best deal I know in South FL. is Tony Schreiber... a total steal at his current prices.
      Thanks Evan. That's mighty nice of you. I have new pricing ready for 2009 (though I booked a fair number of 2009 dates at existing prices).

      You can always spend less, someone out there will work for nothing or next to it - and might find someone really good just starting out - but that's definitely the exception.
