    Cost would be higher than that.

    Its great to be able to find someone in any business that is willing to do things for no profit.

    Unfortunately all the established companies cannot.

    Wish we could do it just for the vacations! But unfortunately we have to put the kids through college

      these are photographers that are trying to build up their destination wedding portfolio, and in order to do so are offering couples a great deal - it's a win-win situation. they may have a great portfolio with "traditional" weddings, but want to work more in the destination wedding arena. i don't think there's anything wrong with this strategy, for either party!

      i know a few "established" companies, some of which are on this forum, that have offered contests or other promotions just to get their name and services out there - it's a form of marketing and cost of doing business. in the end, if they get a great referral, then the cost is justified by the increased business. i think it's great that some of htese girls have found a photog that works for them, and is offering a great deal!

            nicely said Ann - everyone has a different scenario and we are not on to be judging or be judged

              Maybe this is a way of doing business for some people, and that is great for them and hopefully they can get a portfolio started.

              I wouldnt take this too personal. There are LOTS of weddings to be had, destination and local.

              cheers!
