Nikki posted a good response.
But most of the people responding here are perfectly right: it is a free market.
Ever wondered, why all professional photographers are about on the same price level?? I suppose no.
So feel free to try a really cheap offer on the free market for a wedding. I bet 100% you would be heavily disappointed.
Or better: try to do a wedding shooting yourself for a good friend. No?

Good and reliable quality = a lot of knowledge, experience, onstage work, a LOT of backstage work and expensive, reliable quality equipment. There is no way around it, it is not cheap.

forpetessake: What a stupud response. She is stating how much income she wants to have, how much she spends, what the taxes are, etc., etc. Nobody really cares, the price on the market is established on the basis of what the customer wants and what the serviceman provides. And in all those types of work, a customer has much better position negotiating. Lawers can easily charge $300/hour, but a water would work for $8/h. It's a free market, stupid. So if you can't satisfy your "needs" for less than $3k per wedding, then probably you need to find a different job, because there are plenty of people who can.
