      I spent just over 2K. Photography was a really important area for me and I was willing to spend a bit extra there.

        We paid $3000 for a full day of shooting, a special photo shoot, and a dvd of all the photos, and travel. We paid an additional $2200 for a magazine style photo album with 40 pages and 2 parent albums.

            Your going with Del Sol too , arnt you? Thats how much mine is coming out to me as well. I booked Vincent. I can't wait to see your pics. I still have another year to wait.

            I am getting 4 hours of time for $2800. That includes 150plus photos of retouching I believe..Are you going with the TTD too? I kinda wanted to much I dont wanna push it with the future hubby. I am just glad he is willing to go with them at all. Maybe once we get down there he will want too.

              We paid $3950 for tropical imaging!

              That is 3 days of shooting... wedding day, TTD, and boudoir
              It also includes 2 flush mount albums and all of our high res negatives.

                I'm getting married at a breezes resort and they do not let outside photographers in so I will have to go with the resort photographer. I am a little nervous because I cant find any info or pics from them. But I really thought the pics are very important so I hope we get some good ones.

                  We are paying $1800 for our pics to be done by Tropical Images which includes the negatives & album & about 4 hours of photos with me & FI and all of our family the day before the wedding. We chose to do it this way just so we could relax after the ceremony. I know I am super excited about it & after the reviews from people here I am even more excited!

                  That sounds about right. Gosh i can barely remember with all the little extras how much we paid but it was somewhere around that too with flying her in.

                  All i can say really is you pay for what you get.

                    I paid 2450 for 7 hrs on the day of the wedding unlimited shooting. Then the next day she came to pick us up for some downtown San Jose shots for about 2 hrs. 300 images in an online album, edited. Rights to over 2000 images and the option to purchase an album at a discounted rate. We used Gilda Badillo for photography. We used Baja Video productions for the entire ceremony and reception video and paid $1350. In my opinion, worth every penny. I haven't seen either finished product, but from what I have seen, they all did a great job. Pics and video are the most important thing besides your honey. Memories fade, but pics and video if you are lucky will last forever.
