Photography Question...

I was just wondering what the average price for a photographer in this area (DFW) was?  Looking at having engagement and wedding day pics... I have one that I really want to use but I want to get some different prices before I say yes.

    I'm not so good with the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

    The great photographers start from about 2k-5K. From my research 2photographers for 8 hours runs about 3K-4K. I truly believe you get what you pay for with photography and it's the area to splurg
  • Options
    I've seen pricing anywhere from $800 to $5K, it just boils down to what kinds of extras you want. I would venture to say that the average around this board is about $2K, which wouldn't include albums or prints. Meet with a few and see a few of the weddings they've done from start to finish, determine what style you like best all while keeping in mind a budget starting point. My photog was $1700 which included an engagement session and full wedding day coverage. Bridal session, extra photog and albums were available at a la carte pricing.
  • Options
    Between $2000-$2500 is a good starting point for a session and about 6 hours of coverage with 1-2 photographers. 
  • Options
    I absolutely loved my photographer and though she wasn't as expensive as others, I still felt the quality was just as good! She started at $900.

    I think my photographer came out to just under $3000.  As others have said, it's important to pay attention to what you get with a photography package.  Some photographers include engagement and wedding photos.  Some include a high-quality photo album.  Some photographers will charge $2000 and you only get wedding day coverage.

    Mine was $1,250 and included engagement pictures, full day wedding coverage with two photographers, and a CD of all images in high-resolution. No prints or album. But, I negotiated getting the CD instead of an album.

    This. I am paying $1500 for engagements, bridals, two photographers and full day wedding coverage with all pictures on a flash drive. I will print myself but I prefer it that way. Make sure you understand what all you receive in the package.

    I guess I've been looking at different photographers.  

    Do you mind sharing your photographers, thanks Smile

    Who was the photographer you used if you don't mind me asking?

    We have a sticky at the top of the page with a list of all our vendors.

    We also have a more in-depth website with vendor info, but I don't know if it's linked in that thread.

    Well... we don't know every single vendor!

    The vendors listed on the site are the ones that knotties used during the time the vendor site was made.

    Jen and I both used Maddiepie Creations

    You are right.  None of mine are.  I was hoping aeliza would come around with the link to the other vendor site.

    My photographer was Stefanie Hampton Morrow.

    I think that she is still working on it... I will page her

    I used a lady who works at our administration building.  She now starts around $1000, but she told me recently that she is willing to talk to any bride to see if she can work within their parameters.

    PS:  Not every photography vendor will be there because only a handful of DFW girls actually use this website.  It's a fairly comprehensive list for the girls who have come here. 
  • Options
    I was checking the usernames that posted here to see who they used and several weren't listed. I realize not every DFW vendor will be listed.

    Well, see, we had a crazy girl here who did some crazy stuff and we had to take down the original vendor site and it takes a while to compile all that information.  If you have someone you specifically want to know about, ask.  If there's a Knottie who you would like to know about their photographer, ask them.

    Ok thanks. I don't know any backstory on the vendor site. I was told to go check it, I did, and noticed several girls vendors weren't listed so I just mentioned that. That's all.

    It is updated with who had what based on what info was provided in a thread not too long ago. That part is at least done. You should be able to CTRL F to find a specific user name (since it is a long list).

    My package was around $5,000 and I used Jenny Martell. Here's what we got: -2 wedding day Photographers for 7 hours -engagement and bridal session -high quality flush mount album -2 parents albums -DVD of digital negatives on all sessions and wedding coverage -prints Her packages started at $2,800 but we added quite a bit. And her quality, fantastic! That said, if you do the right research, you can definetely find fantastic quality for cheaper, but we were willing to splurge here!

    Ok we are told to look at the vendor sticky at the top and this is the website listed http://dfwvendorlist.yolasite.com/

    The one you posted above doesn't have anything listed under photographers.

    I'm so confused :(
