amber choike photography

Hey Girls

I recently found amber through another photographer that I contacted but was booked for our date. Has anyone used or heard of her?
this is her package:

6 hrs of coverage
a cd w/ pic
copyright to all pics
engaement session
online photogallery
price $1000

$100 per hr if we want to add more time.

is this a good deal?

thank you!!

    Depends, have you seen her portfolio? Is her work exceptional?

    I'm getting 8 hours of coverage for $600, all copyrights and images on disk, unlimited locations.

    If you like the work and the photographer has good reviews, this is certainly a reasonable price.  For 6 hours of coverage, some photographers will be less than this and some will be more.

    I am not sure how long your wedding is or what your budget allows for photography, but 6 hours would not have been enough for me (My reception alone was 6 hours, and I had the photographer there for 5.5 hours of it, in addition to the ceremony which was an hour, and a couple of hours of getting ready pictures and formal shots).  However, I do know that ladies on this board with different wedding setups and budgets than I had have had a lot of success at 6 hours of coverage.

    I used Amber Choike for my engagement pictures last year...we ended up not booking with her, because she was not available all day on a friday because of other work.
    She ended up being really pricey too..

    We used The Camera Chick, unlimted hours, all the rights to the pictures, and 2 photographers.
    I think her going rate is somewhere between 1000-1250? We payed 1000 when we booked her a year in a half ago.

    you can email her at yourcamerachick@gmail.com

    Or you can visit her facebook page wtih all of her work on it Sandy Testasecca Meitzner...the website they have does not have updated pictures.

    my ceremony starts at 530 and we have to be out by 1  and we are doing all of the pics before the ceremony, I was thinking starting taking pics around 2-230. I realize that the photographer doesnt have to stay until the very last second but id still like pictures from the reception besides the formal dances.

    our budget is under $1000

    I like the pics on her website but im not in love wth them and I thought that it seemed kindof a lot for only 6 hours.

    I love the Camera chick but she is booked for my date!!

    thanks ladies this was very helpful!!
