    I think we are skipping the photography. All of the leads that we had that would fit in our budget have ended up not working out. Since I'm unemployed and FI is just now finishing school we don't have any real income.

        3,500 for husband and wife team,e-pics, wedding day, they threw in trash the dress, DVD and rights to all photos, we paid to fly them out plus room and board. Their prices have gone up since but it was well worth it for someone you trust and love their work!

          I`m paying $4300, photos are extremely important to me. We get the full wedding day coverage, a TTD the day after, and we plan on taking our guests on an excursion which the photographer will also shoot photos of our guests enjoying themselves on the catamaran, beach, and snorkeling - oh, and we get 2 photographers! :)

            hmm.. I'm starting to think im getting ripped off! Im getting married in south florida and the photog lives about 30 min from my location so no travel fees and I'm paying $5,000 for 7 hours! 6 hours the day of the wedding and 1 the next day for our TTD. There will be two photog's there, but not at my request. I get like a dvd and an album with 100 pictures, but still.. doesnt this seem expensive? Some of these girls on this forum are paying for travel costs and its STILL cheaper than what I'm paying. Guess its too late now to complain, I already booked her :/

              We're paying $1900 for the photography coverage on the wedding day, the TTD, a coffee table book, a slideshow and all the digital prints, she's not charging me her travel expenses!

                If you love their work- don't second guess your choice. We're paying about 5200 for 6 hours wedding (plus her asst, so two photogs) ,she is in the area, but part of her fee is one night at the resort, since she is several hours away- then the resort charges extra for staying only one day.
                Also paying 800 for a diff photog for our TTD- it took me awhile to convince FI to get one so our wedding photog was booked



                This was my only non negotiable- as soon as I saw our photogs pics- I wanted her only.

                  I have finally booked Citlalli Rico from Claudia Rodriguez Photography and someone from Cancun Wedding Video. 3 hours for 3K-for photo and video. A chunk, but I hope to be well worth it in the end.

                      Can you please share who you used as a photog? I havent found anything less than $2000. I thought that was good compared to the other prices Ive seen. LOL
                      Sorry, I didn't see your question earlier!

                      I'm using a photographer in upstate NY named Robyn Baty. I met with her at her studio and saw a lot of her really awesome photos that she hasn't put on her website. She will be photographing prep time, ceremony, in-between couple shots, and reception. She said she will do whatever I want, and she is actually bringing in a second photographer at no extra cost to get some of the shots I want.
