      $475: DVD of all images + copyright letter
      $450: Boudoir Shoot + $100 print credit
      $300: Engagement + $100 print credit
      $700: 2 plane tickers
      $1000: 3 nights stay at hotel
      $800: Album
      $?: Misc. expenses, as we will be treating them as a guest

      So about $7,000

      That's scary to look at, but it is worth it to me!!!

      This is pretty decent pricing. I think you did well assuming you got someone with experience and a great portfolio

        I am using the resort photog for my DW, I have no idea which package yet. But we hired a local guy for our AHR and will probably choose his lowest package ($1,290 for 6 hours and full res cd/dvd) and maybe make some additons from there.

          I am paying $1,050 for 2 1/2 hours of pictures and all my images on a CD. I am hiring Erick Rodriguez from Claudia Rodriguez's team.

          2 1/2 hours probably doens't sound like a lot, but it will work for us. We are not havinga private reception, so I don't want pictures taken during dinner. So we have a photographer before the wedding to take pictures of us when we first see each other & a few more pictures while my hair & makeup are still fresh. Then they will photograph the ceremony, do some group shots & take pictures of us on the beach.

                I'm not leary at all! She's just building her destination wedding portfolio and is offering a great deal. Her work is great; she's actually a member of this forum and I can't wait for her to photograph my wedding.

                  Well good for her, GREAT for you! BAD for the others who make their living providing this service I suppose.

                    I have the same package and cannot wait for her to shoot my wedding! Her work is fantastic, and many of the girls on here are using her. I feel lucky to have gotten in for her portfolio building package :)

                    i ended up getting a portfolio building package too! Different photographer though! he's from Seattle (and possibly his wife... but she's due in November and isn't sure if she's coming yet). Anyway, for just over $2,000 they will be staying with us for four nights and photographing everything! I'm SOOO excited!
