For the ladies doing packages of TTD/BD/Wedding Day roughly how much was your package and did it include rights/copies of your photos on disk?
    My BD was a different photog than my wedding photog. My BD was local to where I live and I flew down someone else for my wedding.

    For BD I paid $550. Wedding Day/TTD was about $2500. Both came with copies/rights. There are sooooooo many different prices out there for photogs and each one comes with different things included. Good luck!

        Thanks Taylorwd I am just trying to get a feel for whats out there. Its major decision making time and I have to start taking a long hard look at how and where the money is being spent. $550 for a BD is exceptional especially if that included your book and photos.

          I agree, my BD package was exceptional! It included 2 hours of shooting, a kick a** book and all the photos. And wow, you should see the pictures. She has the most incredible eye. I feel truly lucky to have found her!

                    Love the break downs! We are at about 15k so far...I'm afraid to break it down because I'm afraid I'll realize I forgot to include things. We still have 6 months!! AHH!! :-)
