Question for Photographers
Posted 23 March 2007 - 04:59 PM
I was given this price list directly from a photographer and I want to know your opinion on the packages. I really want to get the most bang for my buck and I'm not sure if this is a good deal. I really like their photos but I also don't know if 120 photos is enough....
I am getting married in PV and if you have any recommendations, I would greatly appreciate it. ( I am looking for a photographer there, I can't afford to fly one in). I am also looking for an artsy/photojournalistic style.

its says: "Extra pictures $ 12 usd $ 20 usd each" - so is that $12 or $20 usd?
depending on the wedding and there are a lot of variables i usually deliver between 500-900 pics. that would mean by those prices i should charge upto $15,000 or so. 120 pictures does not seem like many to me. so lets say you want 100 more photos. then it could be up to $2000 more? and how do you know if you are going to want more? online proofing?
and what is the basic hour amount? and increments? and are extra hours $80 or $120? this is confusing to me. maybe if you post the entire pricelist and not just part of it i could be of more help. sorry! let me know if you post more info.

If you can find out what album company they are using, we can probably tell you more about the quality. An Asukabook album, for example, may be worth $400, but an album picked up at walmart with the images taped in would not.
Also ask whether the 40, 80 or 120 photos is everything they shoot or after editing out the bad ones.

First off, what could possibly be the difference between a 'professional' photographer and a 'master' photographer. Sounds like marketing 101 to me. If you were to choose the 120 photo package from the 'master' your minmum cost would be $1800 USD (if I am reading this correctly) and that is simply not value for your money. That works out to $15 per photo! How many hours with he/she be there for. Is there enough time scheduled to get all the important shots? Assuming this is four hours of coverage I would typically have between 400-500 'keepers" (photos) for the couple of their wedding. Ask about copyright (who will own the photos) because YOU should own them.
Here is a suggestion. Create your own wedding photography package and ask the hotel to price it out. Hope this helps a little bit. If you have any further questions please ask.
