Mommy Problems

I think I had posted before that we are going to have our wedding photographer take family photos in a couple of month. I have SO been looking forward to this because Dionne does such a awesome job. On Friday I got a email from her assistant with a contract to sign and sent back, and a price list. Now I never looked at her price list on her website, because every thing she has done for us before has been very reasonable.

Well, lets just say her prices have gone up and by a lot. As most of you know when we moved into our house we had Dionne come and take photos, and then she gave us the photos on a CD so we could print them. She only charged us $100 for this. I wanted the same thing for our family photos. Want to guess the price? $750! Yeah, that is not really in the budget.

So what do you think? Should we still do them or not?

I love the pics that Dionne took in the past of you guys. But 750 is just way too much money for family pics. Can you work on the price with her?

WOW. How can she think that huge of a price jump is gonna work for her in this economy?! Yes, she does amazing photos -- but that's not justifiable. Stacey, you've taken tons of outstanding shots of Josiah. Maybe it's reasonable to just use JC Penney for the family pix. ~~ Amy (oaks)
