    We loved our photographer, Gilbert Reyes! His price is $900 for all-day photography with second shooter and high-resolution photos on CD. He also offers engagement sessions for $250 and professional albums that start at $350. Gilbert is friendly and really fun to work with. Our videographer got engaged recently and liked our photographer so much he booked with him too! The link to our wedding highlights is in my signature. (Engagement photos were done by a photographer in a different state.)

     we're using melissa jaen. shes new to the area so she has cheaper rates. were getting an engagement session, unlimited coverage the day of, the rights to all the images, and a disc/file with all the edited photos for 500.00

    according to her website her rates went up to 700, but i would still try to negotiate with her.

    we met with her a few weeks ago, and i think working with her is going to be awesome. here's her website

    After reading this post I checked out her website and it looks like the rates went up again.  Now it's $900 for the wedding an engagement session.

    You must have got her a really good time!
