Wedding photograpy pricing
It is such a shame that potential clients shop purely on price alone.
While it is completely understandable that money is tight in our current economic climate, but couples expecting full wedding coverage which may entail 10 to 12 hours of work on the day and many more hours work editing their images, cannot expect any true full time professional photographer to shoot it for $300 to $400.
Obviously there are photographers out there who are new to the trade and trying to get their name out there willing to shoot for such low amounts. Sooner or later (usually sooner) they realise that making a living requires that they have to charge a sensible fee for their services or they will go under.
Whilst they are learning this hard lesson they are not doing the trade any favours.
I understand that every new photographer has to start somewhere, but many just jump in to the wedding trade thinking that is a cash cow to take advantage of. This could not be further from the truth.
Wedding photography is without doubt the most physically and mentally demanding photography that cannot be repeated at a later date. You get it or you don't.
Unfortunately there are many new to wedding photography who don't get it.
This is why couples should be prepared to pay for the services of an experienced wedding photographer.
Couples have very little to remember their special day except for great photographs.
