I like your work, bright, interesting, different.
ljstudio: I photographed weddings for 30 years. The last one I photographed (using film) was in 2004. Kodak came out with a statistic many years ago that the average wedding photographer (again, back in the film days) would spend 28 to 35 hours on every wedding they would photograph. The bulk of the work is done after the wedding & reception- editing, ordering albums, dealing with all of the orders, etc.We would charge $1500 for a starter wedding package until we bought Successware, a studio software & financial program which, in my opinion, is the best available. After punching all of our costs, hours we spent on each wedding, etc., Successware informed us that our starter package should be $2900 instead of $1500. We ran the numbers 3 times just to be sure. Weddings are hard work & most photographers earn their money.
