Otherwise, we were thinking of going with Sara from the same company as she is only $1900. Plus, we assume that we still have to pay the $500 to the resort.
We did not negotiate because the $2,000 for 8 hours was the best price that we had found after much searching. I think his prices just went up - photographers prices typically go up each year.
I saw William Sanchez (who we really liked) posted on a boards for WAY less than what we were quoted only 1 year later. I think the demand for him just skyrocketed and his prices increased over $1,000 in 1 year. I think it's how the business works. Sara's photos also seemed really beautiful.
