Just a word of advice DON'T purchase a book from the photographer!!! The average price of their books are $150-350! You can EASILY make your own book on sites such as Mypublisher, snapfish, shutterfly, blurb and probably a few others. Personally I like publisher and blurb the finished product looks so professional. The cost of my book (that I did myself) was $56 including shipping AND extra pages AND I had a coupon code and received a free booksmile29.gifsmile72.gif. When I brought up designing my book, my photog actually recommended that I make my own (I already had that in mind because I created photobooks before) For the size book I made a photographer would have charged $200!! If you want to take a look at mine PM me and I will share the book via email.

 

When your package includes books, this is where the price is driven way up.. Jennifer that I recommended before gives you 50 edited shots included in her pricing.. I heart her :) can't you tellblush2.gif.

I'm glad you said that. I think that when people consider the cost which does not include the cost of a book, this gives people pause. Making a book ourselves might actually save some money. I like that Jennifer works out of her own studio and has some of her own props. I also like that we all do not have to book the same day to get the group rate.

I also would much rather pay a little extra and get someone that comes recommended.

Many thanks to Saphhire that has been investigating other options for us too. If anyone comes up with anything else...let us know. We are not wedded to using anyone in particular...we just want a good deal from a reliable professional that does good work.

I think I'm leaning towards Jennifer and buying my own book now.

Okay ladies...first and foremost thanks again to Saphire for her research....it has been much appreciated. If anyone else is interested, please send a PM or leave your e-mail address. I THINK we may be winding down our search. Thanks.

Okay Ladies...I'm very excited. I have what I think is good news. Jennifer got back to me today with a special package. I think it's the cheapest rates I have seen thus far. This package however requires that at least 4 of us book and it must be on the same day. The good part is that we do not have to rent a hotel...she has a studio in her home in Queens.

 

I think Jennifer has worked with us to give us what we want at a terrific price...which now includes a photo album!! So far...it looks like 2 of us are definitely on board. I was thinking about late April...early May for a date.

 

I have sent everyone whom was interested a PM or an e-mail. If you did not get one, please let me know and I will send you the info. If you would like info on this...please send me a PM or your e-mail address.

 

Let us know if you are interested so that we can focus in on a date that is good for everyone and lock it in.

 

The package includes:

 

3 outfit changes

Editing and airbrushing of 20 photos per girl

Hi-res jpg files via e-mail

5x7 leatherbound album that will hold 20 5x7 prints

Refreshments

Possible discount for makeup artist if at least 4 girls interested

Well thank you for the recommendation!!! I just hope that we can get enough ladies to do this...I hope so. Also...Sapphire has done a lot of leg-work researching many photograhers.

Just an FYI...the end of April....early May date is not set in stone. When we find out if we have enough people, we can all decide what suits everyone. I did speak to Jennifer and April is tight...but possibly doable. She will also deliver the photos based upon the wedding date of each girl so if you are close....you should get yours earlier. I was thinking late April/ early May because I want to also have my own book done in addition to the album that we will get from Jennifer. However...we all have to be flexible..so...let's see if we can put together a group and then if we can pick a date that works for everyone.

Hey girlies!! I might be interested in this too! Danielle, that package looks great, but do you know how much it costs?

The 1st weekend in May (Sat 5/1) would work best for me cuz FI is gonna be gone for his bachelor party, but I can be flexible. I'm wondering how long it takes to get the pics/book cuz we leave 5/24 for our wedding.

 

Timberly, your pics are amazing!!!!
