    Mine were $50. Often times they can also be included in your wedding day cost.

    That really depends my photographer had a special at the time which included the engagement photos. I had been quoted by a friend who does photography $275 which I found extremely expensive for someone who isn't a professional. Other photographers quoted me at $280 $300 and $350 they are all around that price. Also it depends in your area.

    Ours were only $40, done by a well known professional in my area. I guess it all depends where you live. Personally, I would not pay $300 for engagement pictures.

    It depends where you live. My sister did mine and they came out really great and now she's being my photographer for my wedding for a really great deal.

    We paid $112 for 4 hours. She traveled to our desired location, took 700+ shots, and gave us 180 edited pics. Since then, everyone who has seen our pics, also asks us for her info to hire her. Her work is amazing! Smiley smile She has raised her prices I think.

    As a photographer and a future bride, as with anything, you get what you pay for. Sometimes you can find a beginner with talent for very cheap but oftentimes you will sacrifice quality. For a good engagement session depending on your area you could pay anywhere from 150-500... It also depends what you get out of it. Are digital files or prints included, or is it just a session fee?

    Most estimates I saw were $300. Mine were free because my bridesmaid shot them, but we took her out to a winery afterward and spent like $100 there.

    I would say that $300 is pushing it, but thats the most that you should expect to pay. Ours were part of the package for the wedding so I can't remember the exact cost breakdown but it wasn't any more than that

    We paid $200 because it was not included in our package.

    We received a disc of about 400 edited images.

    Ours were included in our photography package. I saw some up to $300 when we were shopping for our photographer though.

    Most photographers we looked at who offered a la carte engagement shoots were in the $200-300 range. Our e-pics were part of our wedding photography package.

    Ours ended up being included in our wedding photography package. But the session on it's own is $350.
