Julie, rates vary by market, and expectation. It would help all of us to know when and where you plan to get married. It would also help us to know what your expectations are, do you just want a couple of hours of coverage through the wedding itself, edited and burned to disk, or are you looking for photos starting with each of you getting ready, traveling to church, the wedding, posed photos, the reception from start to finish with all the details and mixed group photos with 500 guests? Or, something in between? Do you want prints, a traditional album, a photo book? What about an engagement shoot and guest book?
