Well the ones I have contacted are almost $200 just for the session. Hair and make-up extra of course. And then the prints are like a 10 page album for $400-$500. Really? Just 10 friggin photos!! If I wanted one more photo its like $50. If I just wanted digital it was like 100 images for $1500 and all images for $2500!!! WTF!! That is what I am spending on my wedding photographer. You can't even compare the two. Gosh its frustrating.
So I do have options....my mom is a photographer but not good at shooting people. And then my sister's bf has been into erotica photography for quite some time but I just don't know if that is ok. I think I'd feel uncomfortable. I think I'd rather it be a stranger LOL!! I think that besides saving so much money going with one of these options the benefit is that I will have access to every single picture taken of me and I can do whatever I want with them.
