Is 20 sides enough?

You can also get really nice digital collages, on some of your pages, which show a variety of photographs on the one image/page and can use alot of your fave pics that you want included in the album.
We are also getting our album pics on CD on high res if we want to reprint some.

He basically laid it out in digital format to see what we thought and it was 37 pages....we had to cut it down a bit but there were some we couldn't
We paid $2,800 for the package and now another $1,300 on additional pages. It was too hard to choose.....
Photography is so expensive....

it looks like the areas we live in make a big difference to the cost of photographers as does the 'style' and 'feel' of the actual person and the pics...it seems to feeel comfy & confident with the person is the seller
we have been looking hard and are finding photographer selection the hardest part of the all he planning so far!
we have found a chap who we feel pretty sure we are happy with having browsed at many and he is the first we have actually spent more than 5 mins with.
the base package; for $2700 we get 5 hours, 13" leather look designer album with 18 sides, all the negatives (all digital, at the same time as we get the album, no waiting months), full proof book (up to 450 pics i think it is), proofs on CD rom, slide show on CD rom, free 8x10 and 6x8 enlargement.
we can add pages including 'magazine style' pages for (magazine is $45 each within the black page border or $75 each for the entire page) A double magazine page spread is $150
As we are marrying on a friday (weekday) we get a 10% discount so that will cover a couple of magazine and 1 spread page....
I felt very confident that he will show me looking devine on the day in the pics...he can even air brush if i have a large pimple of spill choccoy on my dress! and if there is any 'rubbish' anywhere in the background....
We are in Sydney, and the options are endless.....would you beleive, i plan to look at 2 more in the next couple of weeks before making my final decision..i wnat to see that i don't like th others as much to feel sure...$2700 is a bit more than we had wanted to pay too, but hey, it seesm realistic based on the feel of the guy...how much can one pay for confidence i guess..
all the best to everyone in this process.....and i will be showing the pics after end of may 2005...yaaaayyyyyy!

that said, you may find someone with not as much experience with a small setup can print some outstanding work just as someone with 30yrs experience with a large pro-lab may be having a bad day and botch it!
i agree with shirl, location location location.
But beware, I've worked for some real rip off merchants, if they do charge a lot more than seems reasonable ask why. Prestige of the company? (like a brand name) Expensive processing? etc

What as important to us, was the photography was good, the price wasn't exhorbitant, and we got our negatives to keep and use as we liked.
Thankfully we found all of this with Leisure Photography (advertises in I-Do). Sue was fantastic, we have some terrific shots, and a great album. Plus we got all of the photos that didn't appear in the album in a 6x4 format.
Best of all WE own the rights to our own negatives, so we can reprint, enlarge etc whenever we like.
All of this for under $2000 !!!!

I really think that it has to come down to what you feel comfortable paying and what you want. I know a friend who paid $900 and at the time thought she was getting a real deal but wasn't as happy with the end result. We have researched and researched the whole photographer thing and "we" think that we will be getting our moneys worth. On that note though we aren't telling too many people how much we are paying because we don't want their opinions.
We think that at the end of the day the photos become the memories, so we are willing to pay.

Still there are exceptions to the rule.. if you or anyone wants to hear a photographers opinion on the person you've hired, feel free to PM me a website and I'll tell you what I can from looking at their folio..

If your photographer has done a good job then you may find it difficult to stick to this limit. I would advise you to investigate the price of extra pages just in case you can't cull them back anymore.
